Manchester United are ready to play Liverpool, according to the club boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer made the declaration on Tuesday, after United’s win against Burnley.
According to the Norwegian, the team is in a good place at the moment, and there couldn’t have been a better time to play the champions than now.
The boss however, admitted it won’t be an easy task to beat Jürgen Klopp’s men, as they’re also a very good team.
He told the media, “It’s a brilliant position to be in. We know we’re going to the champions we know it’s going to be a difficult game for us, but we are ready for it.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better time to play them because we are in good shape, good form and hungry, which is a good thing because these boys want to get better and that’s the test of their character and quality.
“We’re looking forward to it. Of course, we enjoy being where we are [at the top of the Premier League table] at any time, be that the first game or the last game, which is a big, big difference.
“We’re looking forward to it, it’s a great test of where we’re at against a good team. We’re almost halfway through the season so it’s a little bit of an indication of where you’re at, but no one will remember the league table on January 12.”
United moved three points clear of Liverpool with the win at Burnley on Tuesday, and they could double it this Sunday when they visit Anfield.
Meanwhile, Klopp has been warned to field his best side for the clash if he wants to win the game.
