Liverpool vs Manchester United is the most watched football match in world football and it’s fair to say football fans are pretty excited about Saturday’s clash.

While the international break has been exciting in some parts of the world, for England fans it was terrible.

But at 12:30 pm, everyone can forget all about Gareth Southgate’s side and focus on the clash at Anfield.

Of course, Sky Sports are doing their very best to make football fans even more excited about the match.

On Friday night, they had an hour-long ‘Countdown’ programme with the likes of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher discussing the upcoming fixture.

But the feature we most enjoyed was the ‘Nissan Match Zone.’

It was the first of the kind and it involved Carragher sitting down and talking tactics with Jurgen Klopp using the touchscreen analysis.


Carragher asked Klopp about United’s defensive abilities after Jose Mourinho came to Anfield and ‘parked the bus’ last season and spoke about Liverpool’s plan to break them down.

They then talked about Philippe Coutinho’s best position before going into detail about Liverpool’s defensive problems.

It really is a great watch. Check it out:

Klopp wants more time

While it’s a massive match that everyone is looking forward to, it seems Klopp isn’t too excited himself.

That’s because he wishes he had more time to prepare for the game with some players only returning back from international duty on Thursday.

"It's a massive game," he told a news conference. "I would love to ask the Premier League to give both teams more time to prepare for a game like this.

"Our fans are waiting for a game since the last two weeks and since we played them last year.


"It's a pretty big game, so maybe next time they will have a look and bring these teams together when they can work in the direction of this game.

"Sometimes I really could have wished that we had much more time until such an important game to make the preparation. But it's our job and our challenge. It's the same for the other team. Let's go."
