Solskjaer throws a 'dig' Liverpool's way ahead of Old Trafford clash

In the build up to one of our biggest games of the season, all you ever hear from Jurgen Klopp is words of praise and, in United's case, excuses for why they aren't doing so well.

You rarely, if ever, hear Klopp being disrespectful to the opposition and even then, it's usually a poor translation or his words are taken out of context.

But if we've learned one thing from Solskjaer since his first spell managing Cardiff in the Premier League, it's that he has that one thing Fergie always had: a penchant for mind games, and a slight lack of class.

Speaking ahead of the massive match at Old Trafford today, he said: "I’m sure we will bounce back and win the league – and I’m sure it won’t be 30 years until we do that again.

Of course, the last time Liverpool won the title was almost 30 years ago, something that United, and other rival fans, have been quick to remind Reds' fans over the years.

Right now though Liverpool find themselves in a much more favourable position, and it can all be taken with a pinch of salt from the United manager who will no doubt find himself under increasing pressure should he lose today.

So much so, that the Norwegian boss has made it clear that a draw wouldn't be good enough. Even though most United fans would take that with both hands right now.

He continued: "You never take a draw when you’re at Man United, you just don’t. I want to go out there and get three points.

"We need points – it doesn’t matter if it’s Liverpool, Manchester City or Brighton. We want to win games. We need to start winning games.

"A win can turn the season around definitely, that’s another point around this match."
