After Jurgen Klopp‘s side progressed to the FA Cup final at the expense of Man City, Liverpool now have the chance to place pressure on their title rivals with a win over Man United. A win would put Liverpool at least temporarily top of the league.
The Reds play on Tuesday night, 24 hours before City host Brighton – a side that is, of course, home to former Red Lallana.
Liverpool know they have to be near perfect until the end of the season while also hoping Pep Guardiola’s side makes a misstep in their run-in if title number 20 is to land at Anfield this season.
“There’s tough teams week in week out. We are one of them [and have caused] upsets this year against big teams.
“Hopefully we can get one more on Wednesday night against City for my old team.”
It’s a helping hand Liverpool would not hesitate in taking but the Reds must first hold up their end of the bargain against United and then again against Everton.
The history books do not make for promising reading regarding Brighton‘s chances against City with one win and eight defeats in nine league meetings, but in this league, anything can happen.
