How Liverpool left Man United trailing in their wake

May JohnsonDec 16, 2018

Liverpool welcomes bitter rivals Manchester United to Anfield for a North-West derby on Sunday afternoon in the final Premier League game of round 17 of the Premier League season. James Milner is most likely to deputize for Alexander-Arnold at right back against Manchester United. A lack of trophies so far clearly doesn't bother Jurgen Klopp. "I think Jurgen said already their objective is to win the Premier League".

"But when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one that your potential and your desire has a relation with the potential, because to say we want to win everyone can say that, another thing is to say in a conscious way in relation to the potential you have".

Liverpool has been imperious at times this season and now sit atop the Premier League table although they may be playing catch up with title rivals Manchester City, depending on their result against Everton on Saturday afternoon.

Asked if he still loves being a football manager, Mourinho told Tubes: "Yes, more than ever".

In the signature matchup in the English football calendar, top-of-the-table Liverpool faces a Manchester United littered with as many uncertainties as there can be within a grossly mismanaged multi-billion pound organization.

United have still spent significantly more than Liverpool in recent years, but the difference is Liverpool's big investments are paying dividends, while many of United's star signings are struggling to even make it into Mourinho's team.

His social media postings, texts with his mother and jail phone calls reflect his true feelings and intentions, Antony said. The sentencing phase will begin Monday at 9:30 a.m.; the jury will consider whether to recommend life in prison.

United have fitness doubts about a whole host of players, and both Alexis Sanchez and Marcos Rojo are definitely out.

Yet, they have had some decent performers within that squad - and arguably the best out of the outfield players in the last few weeks has been the little Spaniard Juan Mata, who recently accomplished a rare feat of scoring and assisting 50 goals in the Premier League for Chelsea and Manchester United combined.

"We have defended very well - we've got a lot of clean sheets this season. But I think it is important to focus on us, and see how we can hurt them, and score some goals".

United left Anfield last season with a 0-0 draw as they took a defensive approach against a Liverpool side who, at the time, were out of form. "It was in the last seconds of the game".

If we follow the logic that Mourinho will look to frustrate, spoil and wreck, it's not inconceivable that the game could be level at half time.
