Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said it will demand everything to defeat Liverpool, which is one of the best clubs in Europe.
Red Devils will be hosting the Reds at Old Trafford on Sunday after both clubs won in the UEFA Champions League midweek. United beat Atalanta 3-2, while Liverpool defeated Atletico Madrid with the same scoreline in Spain.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday ahead of the Premier League derby, Ole was asked about the huge task required to defeat Liverpool.
"It’s going to take everything to beat the best teams in Europe and the world and Liverpool are one of them at the moment," the Norwegian said.
"They’re one of the teams we’re chasing and we’re trying to chase. What they’ve done in the last four years is something that we’re striving towards, and [we want to] go past them.
"We ended ahead of them last season, they had a large spell of injuries, so now they’re back to their best," he added.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer will be without Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane, while Harry Maguire, Edinson Cavani and Fred return.
