Premier League: Manchester United vs Liverpool; it’s the hope that kills you

More often than not in the past few weeks Liverpool have thrown away chance after chance of being in a driving seat for the race in the top four.

But then they are still given a new chance every week due to the results out of their control.

With Chelsea losing last night Liverpool have been given another lease of life in the top four race however it does mean they have to win every single game they have left.

So that means winning at Old Trafford which is never an easy task.

Manchester United rested their whole team against Leicester City on Tuesday due to the ridiculous scheduling of fixtures so they should have a fresh team ready to take on Liverpool.

There is potential for more protests against the Glazers as well so there is still a threat that the  game might not go ahead.

Hopefully it does though and if it does Liverpool will be without Ozan Kabak just like against Southampton as Jurgen Klopp confirmed he will be missing yet again.

As well as this Ben Davies, Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were not pictured in training so are unlikely to be involved.

Divock Origi looks like he is back though which is a boost.

Therefore meaning that the centre back partnership of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams will likely continue as moving Fabinho out of midfield would be too much of a killer blow.

Jurgen Klopp said he is confident in the pair at the back in his press conference and so he should be as they have done a respectful job when needed this campaign.

The German was also full of praise for Manchester United as he said: “They have a good mix, age-wise. Offensive potential, Rashford is young and experienced, Greenwood, exceptional. 

“One of the best of his generation. What a generation of England offensive players. They play some really good stuff. They will be second. A good season.”

So lots of flattering and it is well deserved but Liverpool need to show why they deserve a place in the top four so a win at Old Trafford is a necessity.

We should have a cracker on our hands.
