Liverpool battle Manchester United at Old Trafford in today’s early kickoff game. The Reds are on a three-match winning streak after their 2-2 home draw to Tottenham Hotspur. Jurgen Klopp’s men are also doing great in the Champions League after they comfortably progressed to the quarter-finals of the competition with a 5-0 win over FC Porto.
Manchester United currently occupy the second position with a two-point gap between them and Liverpool ahead of today’s clash.
In his pre-match conference, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are all in contention for a place in Klopp’s starting lineup. Robertson and Wijnaldum were unavailable for selection when the Merseyside club tackle FC Porto in Champions League last-16 second leg tie on Tuesday night.
Only Nathaniel Clyne remains Liverpool’s injured player ahead of the match while Mourinho has been sweating over the fitness of his players. Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are all out of the much-anticipated fixture.
José Mourinho will hope to see Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku in great goalscoring form in order to see his team emerge victorious over his rivals at the Old Trafford.
Liverpool’s attacking threat would surely be a handful for United defence to cope with as in-form striker Mohammed Salah will hope to add to his 24 Premier League tally this season.
