With the international break out of the way, all eyes have turned to this weekend's Premier League schedule. 

While champions Leicester City will kick off the weekend against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, it's Monday night's clash at Anfield that is really getting fans excited.

Indeed, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool are set to play host to Manchester United in what looks set to be one of the most intriguing fixtures of the campaign so far.

The Merseyside outfit have been in fine form throughout the early stages of the campaign, racking up four consecutive victories in England's elite division. 

United, on the other hand, have failed to prove their credentials on a consistent basis and have only secured four points from their last four outings. 

But that doesn't necessarily mean that United won't acquire a result on Merseyside. The Red Devils claimed all three points at Anfield last term and, under the guidance of Mourinho, will expect to do the same again this season.

And ahead of the fixture, Liverpool fans will be slightly concerned that summer signing Georginio Wijnaldum could be set to miss the game after sustaining a hamstring injury this past week for the Netherlands. 

The dynamic midfielder came off injured during the second period against France, but it was later revealed that he told manager Danny Blind of his problem during the interval. 

Unsurprisingly, then, Liverpool fans have been quick to take to social media to claim that Blind, who is the father of Manchester United star Daley, purposely left Wijnaldum on the field of play in an attempt to give the Red Devils an advantage ahead of their upcoming battle. 

Following the game between the Netherlands and France, Blind, as per the Manchester Evening News, stated: "He [Wijnaldum] told me during half-time he felt his hamstring. He couldn't finish the game." 

That was more than enough for Liverpool fans to begin their conspiracy theory, and here are the best tweets:
