(Video) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Liverpool are on “a great run of form” ahead of clash

This weekend’s clash with Liverpool remains the first fixture Manchester United supporters look for when the list of matches is released during the off-season.

Despite the two side’s varying successes in the last couple of years, the meeting remains England’s biggest rivalry and Sunday’s clash will, without a doubt, be the most watched event of the weekend.

Manchester United are enduring a difficult run in the Premier League, having failed to win any of their last three games. A draw against Everton was sandwiched by defeats to Aston Villa and Leicester but this week’s sensational Champions League turnaround against Atalanta could kickstart United’s season.

Their opponents on Sunday, Liverpool, are in better form going into the game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that a good performance is paramount if they want to get anything out of the game, despite admitting that Liverpool are on “a great run of form.”

Stretty News’ Verdict

With three disappointing results on the bounce for United, they cannot afford to extend that run again against their bitter rivals this weekend. Solskjaer knows he’s under pressure and although the victory over Atalanta will have eased the scrutiny slightly, he remains under the microscope.

Heavy investments were made over the summer and the arrivals of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo come with huge expectations. The squad is good enough to challenge and an extension to United’s poor start to the season could mean that their title hopes are over before they even began.
