Liverpool travel to Old Trafford on the back of a 7 game unbeaten streak – their last defeat coming at the hands of West Brom during the final week of January. The Merseyside outfit have been in fine form and especially with Mo Salah finding the back of the net in almost every match, Jurgen Klopp is enjoying some of his best weeks as the manager of Liverpool.
The Reds have scored 18 goals in their past seven games meaning that they have managed to score 2.5 goals per game during their seven encounters. But when they take on Manchester United tomorrow things will be a lot different.
Jose Mourinho has virtually turned Old Trafford into a fortress and they have lost only one game this season at home and that was to Manchester City.
And former Man United player Gary Neville has claimed that Mourinho will find it easier to control Liverpool on his home turf.
Neville said: “Not many teams win at Old Trafford against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. Manchester City are the only team over the last couple of years,
“It’s going to be a really tough game but Liverpool are confident.”
“I don’t think we’ll see what Chelsea did at Manchester City, Liverpool will not change because they are away from home.
“Mourinho will have some sort of plan to nullify Liverpool and hurt them where he can, so it should be a good game.”
Liverpool will certainly give it their all tomorrow but Jurgen Klopp will know very well that breaching a Jose Mourinho orchestrated defence will not be a cakewalk.
