Man Utd boss talks about today’s match against Liverpool.

Manchester United

are set to face


today in a FA Cup clash. The Red Devils’ have been in a good form in recent weeks, but Liverpool, on the other hand, are not in the best situation. The Reds have only won once in their last six matches.

However, Man Utd boss,

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

believes Liverpool are not to be underestimated.

“They’re still playing well,”

Solskjaer said.

“I said it was the best time to meet them last week. That was of no disrespect to them, it was because it was the best time for us. We are in good form; we are in a great mode of confidence and momentum and we felt we could have won the away game.

“They will want to go through in the cup as well. They’re a few points behind us in the league but they’re still a top team.

“We had four home games on the bounce, now we had three away games on the bounce. You have to say, winning at Burnley, winning at Fulham and drawing against Liverpool, seven points - they're decent results.

“As you expect when you win a game, everybody’s happy. We had to have a day off, or we gave them Thursday off because we didn’t get back until three or four in the morning. We had to drive up instead of flying up, the runway was closed.

“So it was a change of plans on the travel back. They enjoyed the day off and today everyone was back and smiling.

“We’ve lost no one after the Fulham game it looks like. So everyone, more or less, is available for selection again.

“I think it has to do with the lifestyle that everyone is living. Now, there’s not too much to do to use calories and energy away from home. You recover quicker when you’re resting.

“So that’s been a positive. We’ve been lucky in training and games that we haven’t had injuries so far. We keep our fingers crossed that will continue.”
