The countdown to this Sunday's clash between Liverpool and Manchester United is well underway.
Jurgen Klopp knows the fixture could have huge consequences in the race for the Premier League title, while the two giants will meet once again the following weekend in the FA Cup fourth round.
The Reds also face Burnley, Tottenham and West Ham during a January which is packed wall-to-wall with fixtures.
And although Liverpool are yet to enter the market in the January transfer window, speculation surrounding potential Anfield incomings is similarly frantic.
Kylian Mbappe has long been linked with a move to Merseyside, while Sergio Ramos has recently been touted to join the Reds, who are short of centre-backs.
There are updates on both players and more in Wednesday's Liverpool transfer round-up.

The Reds have received updates on Mbappe and Ramos
Liverpool have not made an offer for Real Madrid and Spain legend Sergio Ramos, according to reports.
Ramos' contract at the Santiago Bernabeu is due to expire at the end of the season, giving rise to much speculation about his future.
A move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain has been touted, while Premier League clubs including Tottenham and Liverpool have been linked with the 34-year-old.
But ABC, via Sport Witness, claims Ramos "denies having received proposals from PSG and Ramos", while his brother and agent, Rene, is yet to "put him on the international market".
The Real Madrid captain has made 17 appearances this season, scoring three goals, while Los Blancos are second in La Liga.

Mauricio Pochettino could open the door to Kylian Mbappe leaving Paris Saint-Germain amid interest from Liverpool and Real Madrid, reports the Daily Express.
Newly-appointed PSG boss Pochettino is keen to sign Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero this summer, while a move for Barcelona legend Lionel Messi is also on the cards.
The former Spurs manager is set to be given a large sum to spend on transfers, with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba also being monitored.
But to finance moves for all of his targets, Pochettino will need to allow players to leave, with Mbappe the most likely candidate to depart Parc des Princes.
Liverpool have long been linked with the prolific young Frenchman, who has 18 months remaining on his deal with PSG, but Real Madrid are sure to put up a fierce fight for the player's signature.
Bade has impressed in Ligue 1 with Lens this season
Lens star Loic Bade is the latest centre-back who could move to Anfield, according to reports from France.
The 20-year-old joined the Ligue 1 club from second-tier Le Havre last summer and has been a mainstay in defence this season, making 16 appearances.
Bade is contracted at Lens' Stade Bollaert-Delelis until 2023 but Le10sport reports Liverpool are "working behind the scenes" to table a bid for the Frenchman – who is also a target for AC Milan.
The report adds the Reds are "following his development carefully" as they continue to ponder bolstering their centre-back options amid their ongoing injury crisis.
