Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has claimed that last season’s 7-0 over Manchester United could benefit their rivals as the two sides clash again this weekend.
The Reds’ home win over United at Anfield in March sent shockwaves around the world of football.
Ahead of the repeat fixture this weekend, Klopp has downplayed the result as “freakish”.
He told reporters on Friday: “The 7-0 we knew on the day was a freakish result that happens once in a life pretty much. If it helps anybody for the next game, it’s the team who lost 7-0 and not the team who won.
“If we just play a football game against the historical rival at home at Anfield, that itself makes it a special game and that’s what I want to see – a special game.”
Liverpool are currently top of the league with 37 points, 10 more than United who are in sixth place.
