You know that moment when you are done with the appetizer then shift the plate to face the main dish?
Yeah! the International break was the appetizer here and it is time to go guns blazing in club football again.
Somewhere in England, Merseyside, people are anxiously waiting, counting down the hours till Liverpool takes on arguably their biggest rival Manchester United.
But who owns this day?
A bit of history shows that Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp have been very impressive against the top 6
Despite losing to Man City 5-0, it will be unfair to forget they thrashed Arsenal 4-0. Liverpool may have not been impressive of late with only one win in their last seven in all competitions but that isn’t that what they are known for?
Struggling against the lower clubs while thriving against the clubs around them. Liverpool fans, be strong.
Manchester United fans are the more confident of the two ahead of this fixture. Jose Mourinho’s boys have been on fire this season, beating everyone that crosses their path and doing it with finesse.
Man United are still yet to lose and while many say they have not really played any top 6 opposition, it is hard to see that loss coming anytime soon.
The trio of Lukaku-Martial-Rashford have scored 23 goals between them with just 3months into the season. Get ready for some more goals.
- With injuries to Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana still out, Klopp may need to reshuffle his squad to ensure they don’t fall victim to another Manchester club.
- Man United will be seeking to avoid their first loss which could result in series of dropped points if last season is anything to go by. Whether Jose Mourinho will decide to “park the bus” like he did in this fixture last season won’t really come as a shock to most.
