Former Red Devils manager David Moyes believes that Liverpool are the side that Manchester United used to be.

In the past seven months, the Reds have claimed the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool are also 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, meaning the club are on target to break their 30-year league-title drought.

Moyes, who is currently the boss of West Ham United, believes that Liverpool have become the team that Manchester United used to be.

“People will now be out to try and beat Liverpool. That’s what happens in football. It happened quite a lot in my time at Manchester United, everybody was out there trying to beat Manchester United and teams improved,” Moyes said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

“I said it the other day, whoever the best team is out there someone is out there plotting how to beat them. All the managers are thinking ‘what system can I beat them with, what players can I beat them with?’.”

It is interesting to hear a former Manchester United boss comment on Jurgen Klopp’s side. There is definitely reason to make the comparison between the Manchester United sides of the past and the current Liverpool team.

When one looks back, Manchester United were the side that everyone wanted to beat. Now, it is Liverpool. Hopefully Klopp’s side can keep this sort of form up for many years to come.
