Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on Erik ten Hag and Manchester United ahead of the big match on Sunday.

In his pre-match press conference this morning, Klopp said:

“It is obviously not a team built up for the next 20 years because of the players they have signed. It is for now — but now they are really good,”

“They have turned into a results machine. They are squeezing results out with some really good performances. Top football, and if it is not going so well, they still get results”.

“That’s why they are there. Everyone knows it, they are fully in a fight to win the league.”

The Red Devils are on fine form, progressing through to the FA Cup quarter finals on Wednesday by beating West Ham 3-1.

Added to lifting the Carabao Cup last weekend, Manchester United are flying high.

In the Premier League, United sit third in the table 11 points behind the leaders, Arsenal. They do have a game in hand against Brentford, and if they win that, can cut the lead to 8 points.

Sunday’s fixture is a huge fixture with both teams needing to take home all three points.
