    • Can I just reiterate that Martin Tyler is a cunt. He will have been up since 4am practising his 'Maaaaaarsheeeeaaalll' scream. 
    • Everton player obstructs a defender. Didn’t look anything in it to be honest, but would have been excellent for the fume if West Ham had equalised.
    • Goal line technology is perfect, offsides a tad more complicated in some cases but generally could be handled by technology. Everything else those incompetent officials seem to be fucking up royally.    If they're this bad with the video technology available, then it goes to show just how utterly bad they were before, although that won't be news to most football fans.    Today will be interesting, this and the city game are the ones that I've been concerned about. This one because let's be honest here, the mancs spent years getting favourable decisions from officials. VAR has proven so far it's anything but logical and as previous posters and myself have said, is just one ref covering another refs arse.    I don't know which of the idiots they have in the VAR booth today but it's them that might fuck us over.     
    • Not like the English to make an absolute meal of something so easy. 
    • 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.

      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.
