All the Premier League statistics you need ahead of Fulham v Liverpool

All the Premier League statistics you need ahead of Fulham v Liverpool

When they had a good team after a season they went all over the world.

Liverpool, who travel to Craven Cottage for the Premier League game on Sunday, were expected to make short work of West Ham when they visited the London Stadium in February.

United and Liverpool will meet in the semi-finals if they reach the last four, with Tottenham or Manchester City facing the victor of the quarter-final between Ajax and Juventus.

A new generation of Manchester United players will have to get through Barcelona to win the Champions League. But can they pull off another shock by eliminating Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo, from the competition?

Manchester United come up against Barcelona in a huge quarter-final clash, having been drawn against each other on Friday. Having already jettisoned two managers this season, the odds are heavily stacked against caretaker boss Scott Parker keeping them in the top flight and, with their next two matches against the teams now second and first in the league, the fixtures aren't falling kindly for them either.

United face a two-legged quarter-final against Barcelona in April after staging a dramatic comeback from a 2-0 first-leg deficit to knock out Paris Saint-Germain on away goals in the last 16. This tie looks like Liverpool all the way.

"When I spoke with my chairman, CEO, sporting director, the people here working know and they give credit for what we have done in the last two seasons".

In an article titled "Barcelona tie is what the Champions is all about", they talk about the "bad luck" which United have faced so far in the draws.

Guardiola said he had no complaints with a Champions League trophy being the yardstick to measure his success in Manchester despite winning a league title and two League Cups.

Liverpool blew Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Manchester City away in the first leg with an unbelievable 3-0 win at Anfield.

Real Madrid's exit will increase Barca's determination to go all the way, but they will be mindful of the threat posed by Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba for United.

Real Madrid won the Champions League last season. But for United to reach the semifinals for the first time since 2011, they will have to pull off one of the biggest results in their European history.
