We speak to a Liverpool fan

Wearing a biohazard suit and standing well back, we speak to a Liverpool fan about what they think about their fetid, disgusting team and their match against Manchester United.

What do you make of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool so far?

It's a tough one to answer. On the face of it, little has changed. We've fluctuated between decent and dreadful exactly as we did under Rodgers. He's been hamstrung (!) a little by injuries, but there have been some dire displays regardless. That being said, the players seem to be saying all the right things about him, and there's only so much that can be done in such a short space of time. At the very least he's entertaining on the touchline and he's great to listen to. Ask me again in a year.

Do you think that Klopp's approach might actually help United, because it gives them room to attack that most teams don't grant them?

I think the approach itself will depend on the personnel, which I can't predict. If Firmino starts instead of Benteke, it might give your full backs more space as we'll be pretty narrow, but I'm not convinced that's a particular strength of United's. Also depends on whether he plays Lucas or not, because Can being the deepest midfielder will certainly benefit your offensive players..

How much do you think your injury list will hamper you?

It's not so much the size of the injury list, more the importance of some of the injured players. Coutinho, as erratic as he is, has still been one of our best players this season. Without him we have nobody else to shoot every time they're within 40 yards. Sturridge and Ings missing have a massive impact as we have literally nobody left capable of making your centre halves have to turn around. Our defensive injuries are irrelevant as every centre half we have is a 6/10 player anyway.

Do you think Liverpool or United will finish higher in the league this season?

United. I think you'll get fourth, and we'll miss out by four or five points.

Would you buy Wayne Rooney from us?

Certainly not.


Fine. If you take Jose Enrique.

What is your prediction for the match?

1-1. Set piece for your goal.
