The last meeting

A bona fide classic.

As if the seven goals that preceded the 90th minute of their January 2016 meeting were not enough, a Norwich equaliser to make it 4-4 at Carrow Road was followed by an Adam Lallana winner which led to Jürgen Klopp's glasses being broken in the ensuing Liverpool celebrations.

What the managers say

"It's not about playing the best football you are able to play in history, it's to play the best football you are able to play in this moment. What's very important, even as a team who won the Champions League last year, [is that] we have to stay the team who nobody wants to play against."

Jürgen Klopp

"We will go into each and every game to win. We don't want to save ourselves from a defeat. If we win or lose, we want to be there with the best goal difference we can get. We will fight in each and every minute. I will always protect my players, as long as they give everything."

Daniel Farke


The 16 Premier League meetings between the sides have produced 63 goals, with Liverpool scoring 45 of them.

That equates to 3.94 goals per game - more than any other Reds fixture of the Premier League era that has had more than four encounters.
