"Honestly, I don't care too much because at the end of the day I am trying to help the team win games and I am still top scorer in the Premier League so I'm happy about that".

Liverpool have named their team and substitutes to lock horns with fierce rivals Manchester United in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford this afternoon.

United rose to fourth position on the EPL log with just one point above Arsenal and Chelsea having avoided defeat in the league since Solskjaer's arrival in December.

The Norwegian has earned plaudits for bringing back a more dynamic edge to United, reminiscent of the Sir Alex Ferguson era, which Klopp thought was on display in the Red Devils' FA Cup victory over Chelsea on Monday.

"I think you have got to look at the rivalry", said Rob Mager, a supporter for 30 years and the designer for the club fanzine "United We Stand".

"I'm sure they will push us for the win and I have to say that the atmosphere at Old Trafford in the last few weeks has been incredible".

There has been an evolution in play for United under Solskjaer already.


"It's a big one and we know that it's a hard one as well", he said, adding that United's attacking players were brimming with confidence.

The pair picked up muscle injuries during Man United's loss to PSG and they could very well miss the game vs Liverpool on Sunday.

On Sunday England's two most successful sides go head-to-head in a match that could affect where the Premier League title ends up and who finishes in the top four.

'For me even if he doesn't win (today) he's done a fantastic job, ' Vidic added.

In the absence of the suspended Virgil Van Dijk and the injured Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, Klopp was forced to field a makeshift defence against Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek.

Any game between Liverpool and United is going to be massive, which makes Redknapp's admission all the more surprising.
