Liverpool vs Man United Jurgen Klopp hands bad news to United ahead of their clash

Liverpool vs Man United: Jurgen Klopp hands bad news to United ahead of their clash in the Premier League at the Anfield this weekend.

Liverpool’s terrific run in the Premier League continued with a win against Tottenham last weekend. The Reds will now face Manchester United this weekend at the Anfield. The Red Devils are the only side in the Premier League to face Jurgen Klopp’s men and come out unscathed.

However, Jurgen Klopp has bad news ahead of the clash against the only team that managed to take points of his side this season. The German revealed that this side will welcome injured trio Joel Matip, Fabinho and Dejan Lovren in training this week.

“I wait really until they are on the pitch and somebody tells me they are allowed to do the full session,” Klopp told his Liverpool’s official website.

“It looks like Joel will be in, it looks like Fabinho will be in maybe a day later, I’m not sure. Dejan, maybe he can be in as well. 

“That means a lot and helps massively of course. But we will see how it looks. The week is very important. 

“The game on Sunday against United, we all know what people expect from us from that game. It will be a big one as well and we try to be ready for that.”

Liverpool vs Man United; Jurgen Klopp’s kryptonite

Liverpool have been extremely brilliant in the last few seasons and the side has taken their game to the next level this campaign. However, Jurgen Klopp is yet to find a way to succeed against Manchester United despite the latter struggling.

In their 10 meetings since his appointment back in 2015, the German has only managed to beat Liverpool’s arch rivals twice. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put an end to their winning streak the last time the sides faced at Old Trafford with a 1-1 draw.

The Norwegian will hope that his side can do one better this time with his side regaining confidence after the drubbing of Norwich City on Saturday. However, the injury returns at Liverpool, bolstering an even stronger side, will make the task much more tougher.
