Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer is confident that his side can get something against Liverpool at Anfield this weekend.

The Reds welcome the Red Devils to Anfield on Sunday looking to take another step towards ending the 30-year league title drought.

Jurgen Klopp’s team possess a 14-point lead at the top of the table with a game in hand. Manchester United on the other hand sit in fifth and are five points outside the top four.

The Reds have only dropped points in one fixture this season, which was the 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.

This result, alongside the 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford during the 2018-19 Premier League season, has given Solskajer confidence that his side can get something at Anfield this weekend.

“Of course it is hard, but I’ve had Liverpool here twice, we’ve drawn both,” said Solskajer, as quoted by the Metro.

“Of course you want to win them games but I think we’ve found a nice way of playing against them and we’ve deserved the points in both of them.

“Let’s just wait and see, because it’s a couple of days before I see you again so let’s talk about Liverpool then.”

Solskajer can say what he wants, but the reality is, Liverpool are the clear favourites to win this game.

The Reds are far better in all departments across the pitch, and it should show come Sunday. The two matches that Solskajer has referred to that has given him confidence ahead of Sunday were not even at Anfield.

Klopp’s side defeated Manchester United 3-1 at Anfield in the Premier League last season, and I am expecting a similar result come the weekend.
