Marcus Rashford Insists Man Utd Aren't 'Underdogs' Ahead of Liverpool Clash

  • Trent Alexander-Arnold out of Man United clash

Henderson spoke to LiverpoolFC.com in the buildup about the Reds' changed approach this season-but says the Reds aren't any less exciting than last term. Tuesday's nailbiting UCL success against Napoli is a case in point - it would've been understandable if the Reds had attacked with abandon in a game they needed to win at Anfield, but they payed in a much more circumspect manner, and got the 1-0 win they required to reach the last 16.

"I think Mourinho is different now to some years ago", Riise said, speaking to promote his new autobiography, 'Running Man'.

Mourinho's United are 16 points behind Liverpool going into their Super Sunday clash, having finished second in the Premier League last season.

Liverpool are looking to pick up a sixth successive victory in the league.

"I'm glad I'm a Liverpool fan, not United fan at the moment".

'In the league we had too many bad results to be honest.

However, Keown added that United have a "massive opportunity" to build momentum with a win over Liverpool before games against Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

Asked how far away United are from being a team in their manager's image, Mourinho said: "Far". However, with a visit to Liverpool, you expect Mourinho to return to his usual ground and pound style of football as he looks to contain the attacking intent of Liverpool, whilst trying to get something on the counter.


The Brazil worldwide made a vital late save in the crucial Champions League victory over Napoli in midweek and is determined to secure three points in his first taste of one of English football's most feted fixtures.

Mohamed Salah is back on form and joint top of the Premier League scoring charts, while Van Dijk is a rock at the heart of the defence.

United splashed over £160 million on Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, but both have been benched routinely by Mourinho, while £50 million summer signing Fred didn´t even make the squad for their recent 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

But the German, who has lost three finals during his time at the club, said there was more to consider than just trophies. No was planned, I just went berserk and just ran around on my knees.

"They still have (David) De Gea in goal".

"They have unbelievable quality".

"But I thought that the situation was not that, and I thought the second position was really a fantastic season by all of us, and that this season was going to be very, very hard, because the teams that were behind us, potentially shouldn't be, and on top of that, they had a great improvement in their teams".

"Rafael Camacho played outstandingly well in pre-season there [at right-back]", Klopp said in his press conference, as cited by the Liverpool Echo.
