Dining with the enemy? Milner cheering on Manchester United

Dining with the enemy? Milner cheering on Manchester United

With United facing City at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men will be out for redemption after their embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday.

"Some people up in Liverpool might ask us if we're thinking about Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals".

"We didn't do that - it can happen - so then you have to stay patient, be calm, you need to stay 100 per cent focused on each set-piece because that's what they go for and it's pretty hard".

"On Wednesday there is a game as well". It's a normal game, it's a game they have to play, we played there and had a draw. "Hopefully I can avoid that (shouting), we have no influence".

"We've got Crystal Palace and Fulham to look forward to and I think we can go there and get points".

But they maintained their effort to end that barren run with a 2-0 win away to Cardiff on Sunday secured by Milner's late penalty - his seventh goal this season.

Furthermore, Liverpool set a new club points record in the Premier League - eclipsing the 86 that Rafael Benitez's side managed 10 years ago in finishing runners-up to Manchester United. James Milner stepped up and wrapped things up for Klopp's side, who moved two points clear of City at the top of the table. Going to Cardiff, you have to work there.

Klopp said that if you are motivated just to win the Holy Grail, there is something wrong.

A bunch of Liverpool fans had responded angrily to the former Stoke player's assertion that no self-respecting Manchester United player would like Liverpool to win the league.

Klopp described the dry Cardiff City Stadium pitch as "dangerous", an accusation which his Cardiff counterpart Neil Warnock strenuously rejected.

The Sky Blues have four remaining games - Manchester United tomorrow, Burnley, Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

"Keep enjoying it and hopefully the weather stays nice and let's go for it".

"There are so many twists and turns. I felt we could get something but one slack bit of marking at a corner and that's the quality they've got really".
