Four key questions Klopp must answer before facing Man United
Barring a banana-skin against Burnley, Liverpool have enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, rocketing to fourth in the Premier League table before this weekend’s round of fixtures and claiming impressive results over Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in the process.
