For once I'd like to absolutely crush United. Hope Salah scores a hatty.

Liverpool have only won once in the last twelve meetings against United. Considering the respective fortunes of the two clubs during that time period - fair to say that's a severe underperformance by Liverpool.

In the last year the only game I didn't think we could win heading into it was the Barca 2nd leg because we were 3-0 down. And they proved me wrong.

(Not including the under 9s vs Villa league cup game)
I'm sure you thought you could win at OT as well this year too.

Should win against Utd. Now watch Ashley Young score a hatty and depart a hero to Inter Milan.

Big game for us to try and push back into the top 6. Can make up some ground on those teams 5-9 with a win. No Aubameyang is going to hurt a lot though Lacazette needs to find some scoring form pretty quickly.

Shows what a boring season this is when supporters are hankering after a top six position.
Interesting to see what happens with the top 4 race. Chelsea have a buffer but there was that season where 4th/5th/6th just kept dropping points towards the end (cant remember which season it was). Got a feeling something similar will happen this season.

Leicester are an interesting case, squad depth has been found out a bit with these mid week games and the likes of Ndidi being injured and Soyuncu in a poor run of form. They are 11 points up on 5th, so they should make it, but they have tailed off the past few weeks.

Just looking at the EPL table you realise how insane Liverpool's record is, 20-1-0 is truly remarkable.
P60 W51 D8 L1 going back to May 2018. Equivalent to 102 point per season pace for that period.

Was thinking last night how mental it is that by chance in one of these close games the opposition hasn’t hit a postage stamp in the top corner from 30 yards, or fluked a goal from a nasty deflection at a set piece or something.

I suspect Alisson is a big factor, I’m sure if I looked back, these random events which would’ve cost us points probably have occurred, but his anticipation is so good he’s making a lot of these saves (which Mignolet/Karius would’ve gotten nowhere near) look easier than they are.

Will be interesting to see what Mourinho does with Eriksen this week after his performance against us. It might be that injuries dictate he has to play, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Jose left him out to make a point. Spurs fans will be able to comment on what he’s been like in general recently but watching him in our game I got the impression he’d checked out. They looked a far better side after he left the field.
