Anfield gears up for a spectacle as Liverpool host Manchester United in the 1st leg of the round of 16 in the UEFA Europa league. The visitors have defeated Liverpool in their last four encounters and Liverpool would definitely want to avenge their defeats and give a payback to their bitter rivals.
Liverpool have showed tremendous form off late and there is a sense of confidence and authority across Anfield. Manchester United come into this game at the back of a 1-0 defeat at the hand of West Bromwich Albion. With both sides not in a guaranteed position for a top four finish, Europa league becomes a very important affair and a possible way to get into the champions league for the next season. But to beat Manchester United is never an easy task. Here are the three things Klopp needs to do to beat United.
- Man-mark Rashford
Marcus Rashford has been the revelation of the second half of the season as he has performed exceptionally well for his club. The 18-year-old has already managed to score four goals in the 170 minutes of game time which he has received. Also, Liverpool will be facing him for the first time so there is always that element of surprise that he can give. Although he was not instrumental in the last game, but the youngster certainly has an eye for the goal and Liverpool defenders should man mark him to keep him quiet. Klopp will certainly have to do a lot of homework on the young lad prior to the game.
