Last night saw Liverpool slip to second in the Premier League after bitter rivals Manchester United came out 1-0 victors over Burnley, leaving Sunday’s Premier League matchup against the Red Devils a must-win for Jurgen Klopp and his side.
The Reds are currently on 33 points from the season so far and will have a challenge at hand to not allow United to move even further away from the competition at the top of the table, with Klopp trying to retain the clubs Premier League title this season – something that TalkSPORT host Andy Goldstein has said will put pressure on the club and that Liverpool fans will no doubt be nervous ahead of the game this weekend…
🔝 “COME ON! TOP OF THE LEAGUE!”
😰 “Liverpool fans have to be nervous now and they should be…”

I think Goldstein is getting ahead of himself personally, with United’s fixtures so far this season producing results in the last minutes but they haven’t really shown very good football nor have their results reflected the way they have been playing this season in my opinion.
Can Liverpool beat Manchester United?
There is no doubt that the game will be a big one and the Reds will have to make sure they’re on their A-game and rediscover their form from last season.
Another point Goldstein makes is how if City wins their two games in hand, which he thinks there is no doubt they will, that Liverpool are already essentially in third place – it is funny how obsessed with seeing Liverpool go through a rough patch and if anything it says more about how other clubs in the league are worried of the Reds and the threat they pose rather than how good their own clubs are doing right now.
United are top of the league for the first time in a long time and all United fan Goldstein wants to do is talk about how bad it is for Liverpool – how laughable.
What do you think Liverpool fans, are you bothered about United being top right now? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below…
