Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has stated that the Manchester United side that will face Liverpool on Sunday is much stronger than the side they beat at Anfield in December.
It can be recalled that Jose Mourinho’s last game at Man United was the 3:1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford.
Since then, the Red Devils have amassed 11 wins in 13 games in charge and will be aiming to dent Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes.
“I think it is going to be a real big change,” Wijnaldum told reporters.
“Since the new manager came in there is a new flow, they played good games and have won a lot and that is building confidence in the team.”
“It is also a home game for them so they will have a lot of confidence as they don’t have the problems they had before. It is going to be a difficult game but I’m looking forward to it.”
“One of the advantages [for them] is that they will play at home. I think a lot of teams, when they come to Anfield and they play a draw, they think it is a good result. I don’t think it is a bad result for them, but neither is it for us.”
“I don’t think they will play really open because they know we are good on the counterattack, but they also know we score goals with good football and create chances.”
“It’s difficult to say how the game is going to go, but it is going to be a tough one that’s for sure.”
