Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hits back at Jürgen Klopp

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hit back at Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after he claimed that Manchester United used negative tactics when both sides met in the first leg.

Solskjaer has dismissed Klopp’s criticism and predicted his young side will rise to the challenge of frustrating the Premier League leaders once more on Sunday.

In his press conference ahead of their showdown at Anfield, Solskjaer said: "I take it as a compliment that we defended so well and they've not really created chances against us.

"When the opposition manager is frustrated, that is a good sign for you that our boys have done well. We've played them at Old Trafford twice and been closest to winning both games. So we've got some games to look back on that will give us some belief."

Marcus Rashford Chances

The Norwegian further failed to rule striker Marcus Rashford out of the game and said that he was aware of the holistic environment Liverpool will provide for the match.

"I've been sat on a coach going to Anfield and whatever they shout and scream at you, you don't really notice. You've got to look forward to these games. It's a great challenge for our players to play against the league leaders. It can be an intimidating place but I'm sure it will be fine," he added.

Luke Shaw is a doubt for United after missing the Wolves game with a hamstring injury and Eric Bailly is unlikely to be risked, while Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo and Scott McTominay are all still out.
