It's the final match on the tour of the USA and they don't come much bigger. It's Liverpool vs Manchester United. And the big one takes place at the Big House in Ann Arbour, Michigan. The Reds will be hoping to build on their 2-1 victory over Manchester City in New Jersey on Wednesday evening. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane returned with a bang to turn the game on its head and win it for Jurgen Klopp's side. That victory came as a big confidence boost after defeat to Dortmund in Charlotte, North Carolina last weekend. Klopp is without defenders Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne, both of whom have returned home from the tour. Loris Karius is also sidelined, meaning 19-year-old Kamil Grabara will start the game in goal for the Reds.

Omitting Raheem Sterling upset City's balance and they effectively started with 10 men, so convincing was Ilkay Gundogan's disappearing act. That was compounded by the lack of seniority in the front three on an evening Guardiola may have finally appreciated Sergio Aguero is a superior striker than Gabriel Jesus. The City coach also attempted to be too clever with his defence; the stop-gap Aymeric Laporte is no Ashley Young. City have the best defensive record in the Premier League but that is more an indictment of their awesome attack and dominant possession game than their defending. Since Guardiola began senior coaching nearly 10 years ago he has never convinced with his … [Read more...] about Liverpool vs Man City shows Jose Mourinho is a victim of double standards

From the Manchester side, they have worried about their coach entering the ground through hordes of Liverpool fans, while also seeking to play down the effects the packed stands of the famous stadium can have. For the Reds, each City complaint or dismissal has only served as a call to arms to ramp up the atmosphere even further and create a wall of sound to inspire the Reds and unsettle their rivals. And as history has shown, Anfield can have an effect on even the most battle-hardened team, causing them to wilt when the game is on the line, to forget tactical plans and patterns as they were overwhelmed by raw emotion and passion We've looked back at some of the great atmospheres in Anfield history that tonight's game has to live up to.
