"To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective".

LIVERPOOL, Dec 15 ― England's two most successful clubs Liverpool and Manchester United head into their first meeting of the season tomorrow at Anfield in very different form after wildly contrasting campaigns to date. As his dramatic dash to Alisson after Divock Origi's derby victor against Everton shows, he understands local pride and passion, and it will irk him that he's never been able to beat Manchester United in the Premier League.

Mourinho responded: "Well, I played against a Liverpool that was European champion".

It no doubt annoys Mourinho that Klopp is seen as more progressive and exciting than he is, and there are admittedly flaws in that perception.

United have still spent significantly more than Liverpool in recent years, but the difference is Liverpool's big investments are paying dividends, while many of United's star signings are struggling to even make it into Mourinho's team.

Manchester City top the table with an impressive 44 points from 25 games but Liverpool have lost three fewer than their main rivals for this year's title with Jurgen Klopp's men only losing four times to the "big six" since 2016. That is how I understand life, I learned it a little bit in football.

"I think they are the ones who give you the energy to do it because, at times, you're dead", Rashford said.

The Reds host United at Anfield on Sunday, where Klopp's side are 16 points ahead of sixth placed Red Devils.

On the Anfield clash on Sunday, Henderson is sure United will try to react and find another result against their rivals-but the skipper is adamant Liverpool must simply continue to do what they have all season.

United have won only one of their last five Premier League games and their style has been questioned.

The interviewer Tubes asked: "Is this the best Liverpool team that you think you'll be facing because they are playing so well, do you think this is the best team you will face, Liverpool?" "Because I know if I hit the ball hard enough, it's hard for the goalkeeper to react". No was planned, I just went berserk and just ran around on my knees.

"It's always a high-tempo game, tackles flying in because of the intense rivalry, fans giving stick - but that happens every game no matter where you play".
