They fell behind after just eight minutes, got themselves 3-2 in front after 57 minutes but then conceded a last minute goal for the draw.Of tonight’s match Jurgen Klopp said: “For three months we have been looking forward to this game.”“We are here, in a good mood, looking forward to the game but aware of the qualities of the opposition and the difficulty of the game.“But it is just good to be here and to have the chance even though we know it is really hard.”Liverpool will again be without forward Philippe Coutinho.Both sides score goals for fun but it might be a case of cancelling each other out with so much at stake and as a two-legged affair it could get very tactical.As such, the DRAW at around 12/5 with Star Sports looks the call for tonight.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK DRAW 4 points win at 12/5 with Star SportsPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFOT 18.05 points [dropcap]A[/dropcap] profit on Sunday with the HT/FT recommendation at Old Trafford and for once never in doubt !Champions League qualifying action tonight but before that……. it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to.The Premier League is 25 years old today and have they missed an opportunity by not holding over one of the weekend games until tonight to celebrate the landmark?BBC viewers have been voting on the best of the 25,799 goals in the Premier League’s history and the winner is……Dennis Bergkamp for his sensational turn and finish against Newcastle in 2002.We’ve searched the YouTube vaults to bring you a reminder.
