Liverpool make the short trip to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as Jurgen Klopp aims to get a momentous victory over Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. The match needs no introduction on a standard basis but even less so when the two sides are so closely bunched together at the top of the Premier League table.
I don't know about you but I am massively excited for tomorrow's match. Any clash with City is an important one these days but on Saturday evening Liverpool need all three points in order to keep the pressure on Chelsea and distance themselves from Pep Guardiola's side.
Guess at a line-up: Karius Clyne Matip Lovren Milner Wijnaldum Henderson Can Mané Firmino Coutinho
Each week it feels as if it's getting easier to predict Liverpool's XI, but each week, Liverpool deploy a different XI, having gone 40 league games without starting the same lineup in consecutive matches.
So, I went along to Old Trafford for the 2016 Football Blogging Awards last night and, as always it was a brilliant night. For those new to the blog, I've been attending (sometimes winning the odd award too haha) The FBAs since they started back in 2012. The event has come a very long way since its humble beginnings in Stockport so Anthony the organiser must be praised for that.
Walter Mazzarri is going to have to "blow the bloody doors off" if he wants to force this Liverpool side out of drive and into park on Sunday. The Italian has got Watford playing some great football but in the bubbling Anfield atmosphere, only increased by the Reds' recent confident performances will Mazzarri be able to make the best of a difficult situation?
Every team in the Championship seems to be able to beat any other team on their day and in that aspect it's not unlike the Premier League. We remember well thegame at New York Stadium on Saturday, October 1st when a wonder goal from Cristian Atsu put us 1-0 up after 41 minutes. But [...]

The game against Cardiff City at home today is statisticallythe easiest game of the season in the league so far for Newcastle, since we are at home to the 4th bottom club. But that's why it's such a dangerous game, because the players may think exactly that and not go into the game with the [..

Manchester United's impressive six-game winning streak came to an end last weekend when they were held 1-1 at home against Liverpool. Manager Jose Mourinho and his team will however be looking to return to winning ways this weekend when they take on Stoke City away from home on Saturday.
A game against Stoke City, especially at the Britannia stadium, is always tricky and the Red Devils simply have to be at their best if they want to get the maximum three points against a team that has been very impressive at home.
