Manchester United manager Pep Guardiola’s hope of having Raheem Sterling break the ‘curse’ on him against his former side, Liverpool has been squashed
Sterling had left the Anfield to the Etihad Stadium in 2015 and that was the last time he had a good game at his old ground as a visiting player.
The ‘curse’ has been unending and was more evident in the 0-0 game between the Guardiola side and the Jurgen Klopp team at the Anfield on Sunday.
Not only that he has not played well in all meetings against his former side, the 23-year-old has not won any game since leaving Merseyside club.
Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, before the game stated that he hoped Sterling be at his best in the Super Sunday clash as he wants to beat the best of the Guardiola team.
Apparently, the wishes of both managers were squashed as it was never realized.
More teams are now becoming involved in the race with Chelsea already in the second position with same 20 points after 8 games.
Arsenal are already close as with just two points behind as fourth on the log.
As it stands, the first loser amongst the first three teams will take the risk of taking the back seat.
