United still haven’t solidified second place despite an impressive recent run and Liverpool still hold tp-4 hopes of their own. Jurgen Klopp will know that time is running out to claim a place amongst Europe’s elite in the Champions League now that The European Super League has fallen on its own sword.

Man Utd have drawn 4 out of the last 6 home matches against Liverpool have only won one of their last 5 games against Liverpool.
