Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: If we win at Anfield that would be upset

Ahead of the weekend's big game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists winning at Anfield would be an "upset" despite Manchester United heading to Liverpool top of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have the chance to go back ahead of the Red Devils on Sunday, when Solskjaer believes his side head to at Anfield as underdogs.

"The next one is always the biggest, it’s always the most important," Solskjaer said.

"Being, of course, where we are in the league, that just gives us more confidence and it’s an indication of where we’re at.

"But the game against the champions, they’ve got an amazing record at Anfield in the league. They haven’t lost for many, many years so of course, it’s a great test for us. Can we go there and cause an upset?"

He added: "If you look at the last few seasons, I think it would be an upset and it would be a shock.

"Our position at the moment is a product of all the hard work that we’ve done in the training ground and what the players are putting down every single day.

"We probably deserve to be where we are at at the moment but I don’t think many would have thought another word for it than an upset if you go six weeks back (and asked) if we beat Liverpool at Anfield.

"But we’re looking forward to the game and hopefully we can cause that upset.

All eyes will be on Merseyside this Sunday as the bitter rivals do battle in an eagerly-anticipated clash that pits the reigning champions against the current league leaders.
