In the upcoming three matches , Liverpool will face – Huddersfield , resting at the bottom position, penultimate game to be played against Newcastle who are no way considered a threat followed by Wolves in the last game of their campaign. As these remaining three games are damn crucial for Klopp and his men to gain triumph, yet Klopp wouldn’t be in much pressure as Pep Guardialo who has to succeed with Manchester City four games in a row that to against fairly tougher opponents.
The first to come is their visit to Old Trafford where the arch-rivals United are red-headed to take revenge of the reverse fixture. Manchester United will not let Manchester City gain three points easily as the former will have to battle for themselves in order to keep the race of securing top four position alive and a Champions League spot too.
