Liverpool can go top of the league when they host rivals Manchester United at Anfield on Tuesday.
This is a potential title shaper as United could provide a slip in Liverpool’s run through to their dream quadruple.
Liverpool were full value for their 3-2 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup at Wembley while Cristiano Ronaldo rescued United at home to Norwich.
The win was vital for the Red Devils who rebounded after wobbles against Everton and Leicester. But doubts remain if Ronaldo will feature against Liverpool after the news broke of the tragic passing of his newborn son.
Sadio Mane is in imperious form and continues to lead the line with Mo Salah now goalless in his last eight matches. Fortunately Jurgen Klopp still has Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino as sources of goals.
One way or another, Liverpool should be comfortable victors on Tuesday, but it’s unlikely to be as one-sided as the 5-0 blowout the last time these two teams met.
