For the second league tie in a row, Jürgen Klopp faces an embattled manager in a fixture that could hasten the departure of his opposite number. Last time it was Gary Monk at Anfield, and Liverpool took the a critical three points on the back of an underwhelming performance at home. This time around, the match will be played at St. James' Park, and Steve McLaren is Klopp's opposite number along the touchline. The last time these two met Wolfsburg lost to Borussia Dortmund, and McLaren lost his job. Will history repeat itself after today's game?
