Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has revealed Manchester United are confident and well prepared to face Liverpool on Sunday at Anfield.

“I’m looking forward (to it), I know the ambience, the atmosphere will be great. It will be hostile against us, and we like it,” Ten Hag told reporters.

“It is, of course, a test. But we’re facing Liverpool and we’re really looking forward (to it). I know these players, my squad, my team will be prepared to go and fight, to go with confidence but we know it’s going to be difficult.

“We know we have to suffer, we have to sacrifice to get a good result.”

When asked if Liverpool and City’s hold over the league was under threat, Ten Hag said, “No. We are still in the season now.

“It’s always a pattern, never does it always go so consistently in a way like this (points upwards),” the Dutchman added.

“We are not talking about other clubs. We are talking about us and I think we are in a good direction. And with our philosophy, strategy and culture, we have to keep making progress.”
