This is always a big game but this time round it could be massive if other results go our way and of course if we beat them. Not beyond possible that leicester could take points of chelsea and everton could take points of city, i think spurs will beat westbrom and arsenal will beat the swans so it’s vital we at least get a point from this game.

We might have hendo and matip back, as we know they’ve been back training this week but whether klopp feels their fit enough for this game is his call of course, hopefully they are as we’ve missed them bigtime. Studge done himself no favours against the saints so i can’t see him starting, Origi will start i feel, so if hendo and matip are fit to play my team would be, 

                                                                                                migs

                                                                         clyne        lovren     klavan    milner

                                                                            wjinaldum   hendo    lallana

                                                                           firmino    origi     coutinho

Something along these lines and again, not sure about hendo and matip. I wouldn’t say it’s a must win as such but a win here could get us back on track in the title challenge, especialy if results go in our favour, best of luck RedMen. 

I completely forgot about firmino, probably because he’s been awful of late but i’ve changed the team to include him so can gets dropped, no surprise there and lallana falls back into the mid, so if certain players are fit we nearly have our best 11 besides mane, i’ve also took matip out as going by reports he won’t be ready so klavan keeps his place also.

I think this weekend could have a real say in the balance of power at the top end of the Premier League. United and Spurs have found form at the right time and if we’re not careful we could find ourselves being squeezed out. A win for United would give a shot in the arm to their momentum and could slow ours greatly. The most important league game so far, I believe.

Because it’s such an important game both Coutinho and Henderson will probably start even if they’re not 100%. I think Klopp will keep Sturridge on the bench so that he’s got some punch to bring on later in the game. The two things I hope we see are a zippy tempo and strong ball retention, the two things we’ve been struggling with of late. United will try to steamroller us and the best way to avoid that is to keep the ball. I must admit, I’m a bit nervous about this one.

This game is always huge but Sunday’s is probably the biggest for a very long time. Having klopp at the helm eases my nerves a little but if I’m honest I’ve been in bits all week. Everyone is bigging up manure & how they’re in form & that they’ll beat us comfortably leaving us to go about our business quietly. After recent games all I want is for us to turn up & give a performance that we can & with a possible front 6 of lallana gigi Henderson coutiniho firminho & sturrridge we can cause them all sorts of problems. I’m confident we’ll get a result. We have missed Henderson immensely. I’d love to beat them at their place but a point wouldn’t be a bad result.

Its definitely a true test, by now our team is tuned enough to face any club in the world, how the boys handle the pressure in that old toilet is what matters, having said that media is portraying that Man u has an upper hand, simply because they had a great run, I can see that globally they have more fans than lfc, I sincerely hope our away supporters give thier best, its time to believe, its time put in that extra on the pitch, let’s not get intimated by that Portuguese Pomeranian’s team of arrogant ****** and show boats, common reds let’s do this

Happy with the point with the line up from the start, just couldn’t hold on but I think a draw is a fair result. Henderson quality.

Defensively, we were a lot more resilient than I expected, to be honest. Mignolet was my MOTM, hands down. I was surprised we didn’t keep the ball on the deck and pass it more, United outdid us in both possession and passing. But given the form of both teams, to come away with a point isn’t a bad result.

Given the players that were missing it was a good and hard earned point. When they equalised I was worried they would go on to win it but in fact we rallied and were the more likely team to score in those last ten minutes. I think that says something for the mentality Klopp has installed in the team. We needed a strong performance after our recent dip in form and we got one. Well done Trent Alexander-Arnold for seeing off Martial, who gave Clyne a hard time on our last visit to OT.
