This is the critical moment for Liverpool and Manchester United in their respective Premier League goals this season.
The ghosts of October’s 5-0 thrashing by the Reds linger and the hosts have their confidence sky high after advancing to the Champions League semi-finals and FA Cup final last week. United still have a chance to crack the top four thanks to a series of slip-ups from their close opponents.
Jurgen Klopp will know that his side will likely need a perfect record for the last seven league games to win the title race. Meanwhile, any kind of result for United will give a big boost to their Champions League qualification hopes.
