Liverpool supporters questioning the appointment of Anthony Taylor as referee for Monday nights game should have faith that the result of the game is not going to boil down to a questionable refereeing decision.
When the former manager of the Professional Referees Association says it is unfair though you have to wonder what football is coming to.
If we can't accept that referees are impartial then we might as well not bother. Just because Taylor lives six miles from Old Trafford is not a good enough reason to replace him. That's going to end up with referees being replaced for all sorts of ridiculous reasons.
United fans are travelling in trepidation and hope. For the first time in a long time Liverpool go into this game as clear favourites and rightly so. Their formidable strike force is beginning to score plenty of “team goals” and if only they could sort out the defensive frailty from set piece corners then they would be title contenders in every one's book.
It looks like Wijnaldum is going to miss this game through injury but Can is an equal replacement. The Dutch international is going for a scan today (Wednesday) to determine the extent of his hamstring injury.
Both Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne are carrying knocks but expected to be fit for the game, however Adam Lallana is going to be a close call as he deals with a groin injury and it is testament to Klopp's coaching powers that would miss him if he is ruled out.
The Brazilian pairing of Coutinho and Firminho both arrive back on Merseyside on Thursday after a 10,000 mile round trip to play for Brazil so it's just as well this game is scheduled for Monday night.
For United it looks like Mikhitaryan (once a Liverpool transfer target) and Luke Shaw will both be returning for this game but Phil Jones is ruled out with knee ligament damage.
United have played better over the last couple of games but there is a big question mark over Paul Pogba. His ability is undoubted but he seems to be struggling to adapt to the Premier League and let's hope he doesn't choose Monday night to prove all the doubters wrong.
With the international break behind us Klopp's only real team decisions are enforced on him through injury. Sturridge is likely to be a substitute or used in place of Lallana and will Karius keep his place in goal?
Anfield will be rocking and the new main stand will be called on to do its share of support. Under the lights at Anfield with a full house this will hopefully be one of the games of the season.
Let's hope the referee doesn't have to make any difficult or unpopular decisions.
