Can Liverpool do it this time? Our opinion

There is no reason why Liverpool should not concentrate on their Champions League campaign.

They have a star-studded squad, and now have a strong bench that can provide additional support.

Numerous clubs have won both the domestic league and the UCL together, with Neville himself doing it twice with United.

If Klopp wisely rotates his players, there should be no trouble whatsoever.

Liverpool have a hurdle to cross tonight
