Today, the Red Devils are set to face


; a crucial match between the first and the second team in the Premier League table.

Man Utd boss,

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

has spoken about the team’s mentality ahead of today’s match.

“That turnaround is the product of all the hard work that everyone in the club – the staff, the players, the supporters, everyone has done,”

the Norwegian said.

“There’s been loads of hard work and loads of patience to get to the position we’re in now, but it’s like if you climb Kilimanjaro or Mount Everest and you get to the top and you sit down and relax – what happens then? You’ll freeze to death. So now is the time to push on and go again.

“There is a definite shift in mentality of the boys that we can believe we can go on to bigger and better things.”

Solskjaer had also faced Liverpool several times as a Man Utd player:

“I loved it. I loved playing in big games, I didn’t play many of them because loads of times I was on the bench coming on.

“When there are fans there and you can quieten them down and the away fans are singing louder than the home fans then that’s a great feeling. Now we don’t have any home fans to quieten down, so it’s a different mindset going into the game.

“I think the results over the last year or nine or 10 months or so have shown how important the fans are. The win-rate away from home compared to home, shows that the fans do play a big part in football and the passion that they give.

“I cannot wait to get everyone back but in the meantime, we’ll do whatever we can to please everyone who is at home.”
