Liverpool travel to Manchester United in the Premier League on Thursday looking to keep their top four hopes alive (8:15pm kick-off).
The Reds are seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea but have two games in hand, while Man Utd saw their Premier League title dreams ended by their defeat against Leicester City on Tuesday. This game was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday May 2 but had to be postponed due to fan protests against Man Utd’s owners.

Will Jurgen Klopp’s Old Trafford hoodoo end?
Old Trafford is probably not the place Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will want to visit when they need wins towards the end of a Premier League campaign. The German does not have a good record at the Theatre of Dreams, still winless after six visits across all competitions, including a 3-2 defeat in the FA Cup back in January.
Including that defeat, Klopp’s Old Trafford record stands at two defeats and four draws, but a point on Thursday will not be enough for Liverpool’s Champions League dreams. When asked how important a win at Old Trafford would be in the build up to the original game, Klopp told reporters: “More than 100 per cent, and even if the others all win then nothing changed really for us.
“But without winning football games, we will not end up in any kind of European competition. For us everything is clear, we have to win.”
It was a viewpoint that hasn’t changed in the 10 days since the game was first scheduled to be played, though Klopp doesn’t plan on changing his style to all-out-attack if Liverpool need a goal.
“Do we have to take more risks in the last few minutes when it looks like a draw? That’s possible, but not planned in the moment that if it’s 0-0 we bring everybody who is a striker or used to be a striker. No, it’s just the normal way,” he told reporters.
“If you play a football game and think only about attacking, you’ve lost before the first whistle. Especially against United with the quality they have. So, we need to make sure we are ready, like always.
“The situation we are in, I’m not sure but I think we are not that bad in the form table in the moment, in the last five games we should be quite OK.
“But there were two draws [against Leeds United and Newcastle United] when we lost the game pretty much in the last minute, and that felt really harsh. So you could never get this feeling of kind of a winning streak or whatever, or not losing, because it’s so important.”
