Clyne ready to solve Liverpool injury crisis, says Klopp

The lucky ones- Mourinho assesses Liverpool's title charge

Can't connect right now!

The Reds' tally of 42 points after 16 games is the fourth-best start to a campaign in top-flight history, behind Manchester City (46 points in 2017-18), Tottenham Hotspur (46 in 1960-61) and Chelsea (43 in 2005-06).

Liverpool welcomes bitter rivals Manchester United to Anfield for a North-West derby on Sunday afternoon in the final Premier League game of round 17 of the Premier League season.

The 20-year-old was on the bench for the Champions League quarter-final win over Manchester City last season and has been an ever-present at the heart of the Liverpool Under-23 defence since returning from injury at the start of November.

"I'm glad I'm a Liverpool fan, not United fan at the moment".

So often dwarfed by the wealth of City´s Abu Dhabi owners and United´s vast commercial revenue, Liverpool were this summer´s biggest spenders in the transfer market.

Asked which other Premier League managers Mourinho has been impressed with the most, the United boss stopped short of naming Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola, instead focusing on those in mid-table exceeding expectations at their clubs.

By contrast, United didn't get the central defender Mourinho wanted in the summer and the disparity in both sides' defensive records so far this season speaks volumes.

However, Keown added that United have a "massive opportunity" to build momentum with a win over Liverpool before games against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth. One win in their last five Premier League games certainly does underline the malaise United are in, and a game against heated rivals Liverpool is yet another flawless opportunity for Mourinho to frustrate Klopp with his defensive lead tactics. Liverpool is the only side that is still undefeated in the league, and it will be interesting to see what a struggling Manchester United will be able to do during the fixture.

"But I would expect Rafa, Carragher, Steven Gerrard I would expect these guys to be not happy with me if I say these guys are better than that team".

Liverpool are looking to pick up a sixth successive victory in the league.

Klopp was asked whether he thought United were better with or without the World Cup victor. They have smashed in 34 goals in 16 games, and conceded just six.

In trying to warn of the threat United sill pose, Klopp arguably offered the most stinging criticism of all yesterday. "But I think it is important to focus on us, and see how we can hurt them, and score some goals".

For Manchester United, Anfield has always been the ground where a win got them the most joy - because they rarely win at Liverpool.

"But, then again, Alisson has been outstanding, so perhaps not even De Gea would make it". It's unbelievable. They have strikers ― they can switch between (Marcus) Rashford, Lukaku and others; they have (Jesse) Lingard, they have (Anthony) Martial.
