Liverpool seek Europa win over United after domestic woe

REUTERS - Liverpool full back Nathaniel Clyne is eager to end Manchester United's Europa League campaign after losing both Premier League matches against their arch rivals for a second successive season.

English football's most successful clubs meet for the first time in Europe on Thursday in the first leg of their last-16 clash at Anfield, with Liverpool aiming for revenge after a 1-0 home loss in January and 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford in September.

"I think we owe them from the Premier League games, which we probably should have got more out of. But we have time now to put things right and progress through the cup," Clyne told British media.

"We need to take it to them, especially in the first leg when we're at home. Try to get some goals but also keep a clean sheet, which is the most important thing. We don't want them to get an away goal, and that's what we want to try and do."
