Red’s faced their 2nd defeat at Europa Campaign; though they confirmed Ro16 before


Liverpool’s Europa League group stage campaign came to an end on Thursday night as they lost 2-1 to Union Saint-Gilloise.

So far tonight they have a exiting fixture with Manchester United. Although Many of Klopp’s key players were rested and Ben Doak, Kaide Gordon, Luke Chambers, and Conor Bradley will be given the start.

UEFA struggled a lot to decode Liverpool’s action

On Thursday night, Lotto Park featured a number of fascinating stories.

If Liverpool’s drastically altered team confused USG manager Alexander Blessin and his pre-game plans.

It also confused UEFA, whose paperwork revealed some strange-looking tactical adjustments made by Klopp.

Harvey Elliott and Kaide Gordon were reportedly playing in pivot. With Wataru Endo, the defensive midfielder, leading the line as the lone striker. Jarell Quansah, the centre back, trailed him, enjoying unrestricted movement in his striking new No. 10 role.

A few players trying to stop Gakpo, were chasing him. As he picked up the ball on the half-turn and ran for the centre of the USG defenders.

On Thursday night, Curtis Jones led Liverpool for the third time as he wore the Reds’ armband against Union SG for the first time in Europe. As result, you couldn’t take the smile from his face before the game as he led Jurgen Klopp’s team out.

The Reds boss may have been accused of designating a trial in Brussels, but this was going too far given that UEFA miscalculated the positions that evening.

Today it will be another challenge to face unform Manchester United as their injury list is so long.
