Diogo Jota believes Liverpool can finish in the top four this season.
The Portuguese international started against his former club midweek and he is slowly regaining his form.
Liverpool will leapfrog Tottenham into fourth place on goal difference if the Reds can win their two games in hand.
Jota, speaking to Goal, confidently declared:
“I believe we can finish in the top four. Tottenham are fourth but we have a couple of games in hand.
‘We can do it by going on a run. United is always a special game but the three points are also important in everyone respecting our momentum. The game comes at the right moment.”
It would be an ideal game for Jota to score his first goal of the season as Liverpool look to go five Premier League games unbeaten.
Jurgen Klopp has called on Liverpool fans to make it a special atmosphere at Anfield today:
“Every song, every shout of encouragement and every decibel of noise will help us. This has always been a fixture for big performances and it will be no different today.”
