I fear a bit of a rout on Saturday

But Man u are going well at the minute.
Champions elect according to their fans.

I haven't watched very much if any of their games this season. They are obviously going well though so I'd be happy with a draw. Mane a massive loss for us but we should still have enough going forward to trouble them. Depends on how the defence holds up. Then again they may just come and park the bus and hoof the ball long like they did last season.
1-1

Maribor game on Tuesday is arguably a bigger game in terms of needing a win at this early stage of the season.

Happy enough with a draw at home? What a chicken-shit attitude!!   Lol!   Like most of the past 27 seasons in Anfield expectations tend to fall through the floor around October when the dark realisation set in!   ;D ;D

I'd be happy enough with a draw too.

I would expect Mourinho to set United up similarly, hoping to nick it on a corner or free.

Hopefully a better game than last year's disgrace though.

Agreed, I can't see any change from last season, having form is one thing but these games take a life of their own... park the bus and if Utd can nick a goal then great... it's just Liverpool are due a big win
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

"Stunning" might be overstating it a bit  :P . Higuita he aint.

As for tomorrow I have to say I feel really nervous about it. Manť is a massive blow and I worry about our lack of cover in front of the back four.  United have serious pace in Martial, Rashford, Lukaku and Mkitharyan and I can see them sitting back (Not to the extent that they did last year) and looking to hit us on the  break. Would prefer Robertson to Moreno and probably Firmino leading the line.

Manchester United are going well because they have been playing teams that are traditionally always below them and don't make the top 5. But now Liverpool Chelsea etc are coming up so we will see how good they are
 Liverpool are always capable of rising their game for the top sides
 It's the inconsistency they show against the Crystal Palaces of the league that hits them year in year out
True to a certain extent but United of recent seasons dont win the games against the weaker sides, thats where they needed to improve as they did well in the big games.

So for the second year in a row Mourhino and United come to Anfield with their putrid anti football.
Still though it was up to Liverpool to break them down and just were not good enough to do so.
I think Mane could have been the difference today were he playing.
Liverpool crying out for a Torres type player imo.

Cannot argue with any of that but Pogba is some miss for United.

Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Pogba would have made no difference to that rubbish today....bar maybe get himself sent off.

Its bizarre the way Mourinho sets up United in these games. The likes of Burnley had a much better go at Liverpool at Anfield this season already than United did today or in the game last season. City, if the two teams are in anything like the  respective form they're in right now, will come and try to rip Liverpool apart. United barely ventured out of their half, at least partly due to their own lack of ambition. Mourinho blamed Liverpool's dominance in the centre of the park, but he's the one that set up the team that way. Lukaku must have been going mad up there, stuck in the pocket of Lovren and Matip, just like he used to be with Everton, instead of wreaking havoc like much lesser players have already done to Liverpool.

DeGea, the man is simply peerless, at least in England. If there's one player I envy United about, its him. Class act.

Before the game I thought a draw would be a decent result as I feared for our defence against them.
Disappointed now though not to have got the 3 points especially with Arsenal and Chelsea both losing.

Yeah itís bizarre alright, a team with Uniteds resources, the players they have bought, why would you come to play for a draw? Surely when you assemble a team like that you are equipped to go to any ground and win, home or away.

Hard to know what changes they could have made yesterday, the midfield was being comfortably handled by Liverpool, and I don't think JM had anyone on the bench available that could have added more and still defended the way they needed to
