Klopp: Winning at Old Trafford will be another step in our personal journey

Recommended Posts

Jürgen Klopp has achieved many things in his time at Liverpool, but a win at Old Trafford is one box that he is yet to tick.

Under the German’s tenure, the Reds have registered at least one league away victory against Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.
 

Currently the away record against Man United sits at two draws and one defeat. 

The two teams also met in the Europa League in Klopp’s first season where Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners on aggregate with the second leg locked at 1-1.

 Liverpool’s last victory on the red side of Manchester came five and a half years ago (3-0).

Liverpool head back to the home of their arch-rivals in fine form, having not dropped a point all season from their eight league games.

In contrast, Man United are in somewhat of no-mans-land currently sitting in 14th position with just nine points on the board.

But as we have seen many times in this fixture, ladder positions doesn’t mean a lot when it comes to deciding the end result.

 

Liverpool is favourite to win against Manchester United. The current odds for a Liverpool win are 1.72, and if you want to place a bet there’s a special promotion in bet credits which is covered in details here.

While some managers will try to downplay the record, Klopp has embraced it, seeing it as another challenge for his highly ambitious squad.

The Mirror reported Jürgen as saying:

“Winning there would be a big next step. It’s not a step we have to make otherwise we cannot develop, no. 

“But, of course, for our own history with me it is obviously something we have not achieved yet.

“This team wrote their own story and made their own history and this would be another step.

 

"But we cannot make it by simply talking about it.

“ We have to go there and play the best football we can play, with the biggest balls, being ready for each challenge, fighting for every ball, all that stuff. That is what we have to do.”

One player who will also be looking to break a drought against this opposition is Mo Salah with the Egyptian yet to score a goal or register a assist in four games.

Klopp believes it is not a major worry for his star, and just like the team, he would see it as a challenge to embrace with all he has.

“It is difficult to know what he’s thinking. If someone had told me he’d never scored against United I would have said, ‘Really?’ 

"I suppose the more you go without scoring against an opponent there may be one moment when you start scoring against them.

“All these games are big tests. I don’t see it as a specific test for him, but, yes, it is a big test. 

"And sometimes there will be ‘old-school challenges’ and you have to be ready for them.

“That is how it is. But there is a reason for these stories, just like our history against United away, such as the stadium or the intensity of the game.”

Three points for the Reds and a brace for Mo would certainly equate to a pretty special Sunday.
