Liverpool are bidding to bookend United's undefeated sequence and United could become the first side to inflict a home league defeat on Jurgen Klopp's side since May 2017. "We're looking forward to it," Solskjaer said. "We enjoy being where we are at any time, if it's the first game or last game, it's a big difference. "But, at the moment, we are where we are and we go there knowing that we're playing against the best team by a mile in the country for the last year-and-a-half. They're champions by right. "We're looking forward to it and it's a great test of where we're at against a good team."

"I'd rather win 4-0 and it's so much more comfortable towards the end," he added. "At 1-0, you have to see out one or rwo big moments and we did. We were maybe a bit fortunate, they pegged us back and you expect that here at Turf Moor, with the quality of players they've got in the box. "But we put our bodies on the line, blocked, defended, stuck our head in like Luke did. The mentality is getting better, so I'm very pleased with the spirit."
