    Alisson, Matip and Salah are fit for Liverpool. Klopp has never won at Old Trafford. Making Mrs. Savant watch during wedding anniversary weekend. Really, really, really hope to get 3 here or it’s going to be a long four hour drive home. Don’t think it’ll be a cakewalk

    Absolutely massive game for us. After the performance against Spurs I'm hoping we can go into Villa Park and get at least a point

    Don't think that Villa will roll over as easily as Spurs do though.

    Yeah especially because Villa realize they are a relegation candidate, Spurs have not swallowed that information yet.

    Pogba ruled out for Liverpool clash while de Gea is considered questionable to start at this point. They will reassess him in the next couple of days.

    I don’t get why they have Arsenal playing on a Monday before a Europa League week? This will be the 2nd of 3 times that will happen out of the 6 group stage games. It isn’t a huge deal, but it just seems weird?

    He's out. The injury isn't as bad as they feared (not out until the next international break) but he's definitely out. AWB might start but Martial sounds likely to start on the bench at best.

    Klopp didn’t say they were fit. He said they’re looking better but doesn’t know if they’ll play Sunday....

    Salah will play. I'd really like to see him keep Gomez in and give him a run of games much like Matip got last season.

    Also if Liverpool win on Sunday they will equal 2 PL (to be clear these are PL and not first division) records: most consecutive wins, and best start to a PL season.

    Said they were fit when I posted on Wednesday. Think he is taking the piss with United’s injury report honestly.

    United's injury report isn't some tactical masterclass by OGS, it's a legit injury report. The conspiracy theories around it are just pathetic.

    Pogba is literally in a walking boot. That’s not to play 3d chess vs Liverpool.

    OGS can’t coach his way out of a wet paper bag, is losing against Newcastle, drawing garbage Eastern European teams, going to pens against lower league teams, etc. but somehow he’s going to boss Klopp around with an injury report. Totally checks out.

    Just you wait. This is the game that will turn the season around. OGS has just been hustling us the entire time.

    Who even cares if he is lying about it? Even with Pogba and de Gea United have played like hot garbage this year (not trying to rub it in, just pointing out). What benefit does United even have by making something like this up, and who cares if they are? I don't know why this is even a point of discussion. There's no need for mind games here; either Liverpool goes and performs or they put up a dud and drop points but there's absolutely no reason they shouldn't win this game regardless of whether or not United are at full strength. As mentioned before Liverpool are at a level where they can implement their game (and I know Klopp/Ljinders are meticulous so they will still gameplan based on the other team to an extent) and not worry about the opposition too much, especially in this case.

    This discussion on this forum about this game has been outright insane.

    It's kind of funny that Liverpool can't really win in this game. If they win, it's not a huge victory, if they draw/lose, it's a huge deal. Whereas for United they're expected to get blown out so a draw/win is huge for them. I don't know if this makes sense to anyone else.

    Yeah I mean...that's unfortunately the burden of being considered a favourite or one of the best teams out there. Though I do think Liverpool will get more credit for this win than is necessarily warranted simply because of the records it could match/reach and the historical significance of winning at Old Trafford.

    As I said in the PL thread, even if Pogba and DDG were playing it doesn't change much. You guys are clearly the superior team and those two wouldn't make that big of a difference.

    Since when is Holland in Eastern Europe? Nitpicking a justified rant but that's us Finns.
