Ole’s Reds sit firmly inside the top four spots in second place, with a 12-point advantage over West Ham in fifth and a 10-point deficit to Manchester City at the top of the table. Meanwhile, reigning league champions Liverpool have endured a turbulent title defence and currently sit outside of the Champions League spots in sixth place, three points behind Chelsea, who hold the crucial fourth spot.

In other words, Sunday’s match at the Theatre of Dreams looks set to be a highly crucial one for this season’s outcome. Our creative midfield powerhouse therefore expects an intense 207th meeting between the historic clubs.

“It’s always been attacking, it’s the Premier League. That’s how this league is,” our no. 6 said.

“Every game is a tough game and we just have to get ready for this.”

Kick-off at Old Trafford on Sunday is at 16:30 BST.
