Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rated Manchester United’s chances of winning the 2022-23 Premier League title ahead of Sunday’s showdown.

Klopp said on Friday: “They turned into a result machine. Top football, if it’s not going well, they still get results.

“They’re in a fight for the league, but again, not really important for Sunday, we are there as well. We try to be at our best.”

Klopp added: “I didn’t think too much about [their win in the Carabao Cup final]. Surprised? Probably not.

“How could they not be successful? They’re really experienced, they have quality and a good way of playing.

“[They have found] a new way to defend. The difference in the last few years, a massive difference, man orientated.

“With the ball, quality, it’s not like, ‘I did that’, Erik knows [Marcus] Rashford is a real talent. It’s a really good team, how could they not be successful.

“It’s difficult, pretty much impossible to be happy about something at Man United as the Liverpool manager.

“One result is I am happy for Rashford, he had a difficult last year, he was not performing as he is able to perform.

“This will change again, he’s playing incredible, the speed, technique, the calmness in front of goal.”
