Klopp: Impossible to repeat Man Utd's dominance under Ferguson now

When did Liverpool become better than Manchester United and is the gap between the teams bigger than ever?

So that's "a nice way of playing" that secured two home draws against Liverpool.

The striker, forced off shortly after being introduced as a substitute in the FA Cup win over Wolves, is unlikely to feature in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans.

The Norwegian won six Premier League titles in the Alex Ferguson era as the pugnacious Scot delivered on his promise to knock Liverpool off their perch.

At that time, few would have believed that Liverpool, English football's dominant force in the 70s and 80s, would go at least 30 years without winning the league.

Manchester United now sit fifth in the points table. "If you lose the ball at the wrong time, the train starts going and that's what is clear, but it's about us to make sure it will not happen", Klopp added. I would probably think that he wouldn't be ready, but let's see.

Ahead of Liverpool's showdown with United on Sunday, we lined up the best combined XI featuring current players and modern legends from both clubs. I don't like to think about it, but I'll be thinking of alternatives in case Bruno leaves.

United's last victory in L4 was in January 2016 when Wayne Rooney rifled home the victor with United's only attempt on target in the whole 90 minutes; from that Liverpool side, only four players are still at the club - Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Milner and Roberto Firmino.

Much simpler to say that Pogba appears to do whatever he wants, which tells you all need to know about the kind of control that United assert over their highest paid employee, and by extension the club itself.

In contrast, Liverpool have made just one managerial change in that time, with Jurgen Klopp replacing Brendan Rodgers back in 2015.

While admitting the trip to Anfield would be a tough one, Solskjaer, also sensationally took a jab at his rivals.

The 22-year-old England worldwide is easily one of United's best players this season and has scored 14 goals in the Premier League this season. "It is now more likely that the other clubs will compete for different things because of the financial power of a lot of teams", Goal.com quoted Klopp as saying.
