- Manchester United were certainly exciting in their last outing but they threw away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Newcastle on Tuesday night. Fortunately for Louis van Gaal, their draw went largely unpunished as most of their top four rivals dropped points as well. This is a huge fixture for Van Gaal’s future, with defeat likely to mean the end of his reign as United manager.
- Liverpool haven’t been entirely convincing under Jurgen Klopp thus far, but they remain unbeaten against three of last season’s top four with United next in his sights. Those three matches have included two imperious displays against Chelsea and Manchester City and more of the same can be expected against an often lethargic United team.
