It could be the game that shows just how big the gap between Liverpool and Manchester United has become.
Then again, it might just throw up a shock result.
Today’s clash at Anfield is big in the sense that every game between the two teams is big. But it’s not huge in terms of where the title’s going to end up.
Ten years ago, that would have been because Liverpool weren’t in the running. Now the tables have turned.
You look at it and think it’s a Liverpool win. A banker.
But United might just have a sliver of hope.
I reckon Jurgen Klopp is desperate to win the Champions League for a second-successive year.
I’m not saying today is the day, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Liverpool start managing their players’ workloads a wee bit over the next few weeks.
That might just open the door for opposition teams.
And United have already taken a big scalp this season.
The Red Devils will hope they can replicate their performance from their league win over Manchester City last month.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were excellent that day, opening with an attacking flurry then shutting down the game.
If they can do the same again, they might just catch Liverpool out.
