Bad for Man United: Liverpool’s two different XIs vs Newcastle revealed

Man United vs Liverpool

It’s been apparent for a while that Manchester City will win the Premier League.

The Sky Blues took another huge step towards the title on Thursday night beating Arsenal 3-0.

At the top of the table, arguably the far more interesting race is for who will come second in the division.

Man United, currently second, are fighting to finish the season ahead of Liverpool, who are just two points back.

Man United host Liverpool at Old Trafford on March 10.

But could Liverpool have the edge over United? There’s no doubt that Jose Mourinho will be envious of Jurgen Klopp’s selection update.

Liverpool vs Newcastle

This weekend Liverpool host Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle at Anfield.

Ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp has received a major boost as, for the first time this season, the manager has a full squad of players to pick from.

Amazingly, after 40 matches this season, Klopp have every single first team squad member available.

Gini Wijnaldum, Danny Ings and Ben Woodburn, for example, have recovered from a virus. While Nathaniel Clyne is back after his season was derailed by injuries.
