But will they care?
The chances are they won't. For it would take a miraculous meltdown for Liverpool to be knocked out by Man United. That's not just because Jurgen Klopp's side played well. It's also because of how poor United were.

Ray Clemence's tweet further backed that up. So dominant were Klopp's men that United could have been dead and buried in the tie without their Spanish maestro. And that's certainly not the first time that's been said...
Liverpool have every chance of a strong Europa League run should they avoid second-leg disaster against Manchester United.
There's also every chance of a Klopp - Borussia Dortmund reunion in the final. Dortmund are the team to avoid right now for whoever wants to reach the final, though. They are something else at the moment.
