It is no secret and it’s even being whispered in the dressing room. The record of Man City’s 18 straight wins is about to get matched by Klopp’s Liverpool.
The additional stat in the making, Liverpool remain the only club without a loss and are on route to making it nine wins from nine played.
Worryingly for the team from Anfield, they come to a place Klopp has had little to no satisfaction during his time in England’s Top Flight. The German as Liverpool boss has poorly collected one win from seven games played against Man United.
The most recent being his best season against the Red Devils. A 3-1 victory at Anfield and a 0-0 stalemate at Sunday’s venue. Hopefully, the game’s expectation and hype is met equally in performance by both clubs.
Manchester still owns the bragging rights of this fixture, winning it 28 times already doubling Liverpool’s 14 wins. The two have only shared the spoils on 12 occasions. Adding to this one-sided United stat, they are unbeaten at Old Trafford in their last five meetings with the Merseysiders.
If Ole and his men ever needed a confidence boost, this would be the perfect one. Klopp has warned against this though.
If Man United are relishing the up and coming battle against their established rivals, they are the only team in the world who wants to face his Liverpool side during this time. Has the German got a point? He has emphasised he must change this train of thought.
