Manchester United vs Liverpool : A must-win fixture for Jurgen Klopp

Man United v Liverpool

The race for the Premier League title continue to get more interesting and more intense as days go by and this weekend’s fixtures will have a huge impact effect on who would be the Champions.

Manchester City and Liverpool are involved in a two-horse race for the title and none of them would want to drop point in the remaining 11 matches to be played.

Manchester City won’t be involved in Premier League fixture this weekend as they are set to tackle Chelsea in Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

However, Jurgen Klopp will lead his men to Old Trafford where they will tackle Manchester United in a must-win affair if they must create a three-point gap at the summit of the League standing.

Klopp’s men must be in their best against the Red Devils on Sunday. They haven’t been in top form in recent weeks and they go into this encounter following an uninspiring goalless draw against Bayern Munich last week.

Manchester United are doing greatly and they are yet to lose a single League game since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from José Mourinho last year.

The Norwegian tactician has been able light up his players form and has brought them right from 8th position to the 4th position ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea.

A home win will see United extend their lead over Chelsea who will be in action against the Cityzens at Etihad on Sunday.

The Red Devils head into Sunday’s encounter from a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in FA Cup fifth round fixture which will surely boost their confidence level against the Merseyside club.

Liverpool boss would be hoping his men overcome the setback they often encounter whenever they travel to the Theater of Dreams.

Having played 33 matches at Old Trafford, Liverpool have won just five games but he will hope his players emerge victorious after 90 minutes.

Having blown away their seven-point lead over the Cityzens some weeks ago, Liverpool now put themselves in a very difficult situation where they need to defeat United.

Whichever tactics Klopp deploy at Old Trafford, the most important thing is maximum points and the former Borussia Dortmund boss is definitely going for it.
