Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is excited about Manchester United’s trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on Sunday after the Reds moved three points clear in the Premier League.
Paul Pogba inspired United to a gritty 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor with a perfectly-executed volley 20 minutes from time.
The Frenchman helped his side assert dominance after the break and United were relatively untroubled barring a late nervy scramble.
United’s victory sets up a mouthwatering showdown against Jurgen Klopp’s champions who have faltered in recent weeks.
The Reds are top of the Premier League at this stage of the season for the first time since 2013 and it will be fascinating to see how Solskjaer’s side fare in the ultimate test in uncharted territory.
Solskjaer was asked about Sunday’s game after the Burnley victory and knows the difficulty of the challenge his side face on Merseyside despite their superb recent run.
