Klopp: Man Utd Only Ones Who Wants to Play Liverpool


Jurgen Klopp has joked that Manchester United are the ‘only one’ who want to face his Liverpool side at present, after counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed his side are relishing this weekend’s fixture between the two rivals.

Klopp’s league leaders travel to face Solskjaer’s struggling side at Old Trafford this Sunday, looking to maintain their eight-point advantage at the top of the division and equal Manchester City’s record of 18 successive Premier League wins.

By contrast, Manchester United are currently enduring their worst start to a season in 30 years, having won just twice in their opening eight league fixtures.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Liverpool boss said was asked about the Old Trafford atmosphere: “We like to use the atmosphere in our stadium it is incredibly helpful. Old Trafford is not too bad either.

“They said it – we are the perfect opponent. I don’t think there are too many teams who want to play against us at the moment – it looks like Man United are the only one!”
