Erik ten Hag’s side arrive at Anfield full of confidence, after winning the Carabao Cup last weekend and then coming from behind in midweek to continue their FA Cup run. A charge at the Premier League title is not yet out of the equation either, though they cannot really afford to lose any ground to Arsenal and Manchester City.
As for Liverpool, the frustrations continue. A win over Wolves last time out has lifted the mood somewhat, but that heavy defeat to Real Madrid is still fresh in the mind and the visit of their big rivals is not something they will be looking forward to.
