Graeme Souness says Manchester United are getting away without playing well, while Liverpool are paying the price for their poor form.

Brendan Rodgers’s struggling side make the short trip to Old Trafford on Sunday as the Reds bid to end the Red Devils’s five-gamme winning streak.

And Liverpool legend Souness warned the Reds that they need to cut out the daft goals that they have been conceding to stand any chance of beating United.

“One team are getting away with it without playing well, while the other team are not getting away with it and not playing well,” said Souness.

“Manchester United are obviously on a roll – five games, five wins – but you cannot say that they are playing well though. I think back to that first half hour at the Emirates and they could have been 3-0 or 4-0 down against Arsenal, and yet they ended up winning the game.

“Liverpool, though, are struggling right now as they are doing two things wrong, which means you are not going to win games – conceding silly and soft goals, and not scoring enough goals.

“So that means ultimately you are going to be in trouble. If you are conceding daft goals, it is not just the dropping of points and losing games, it is the confidence which it has on the whole group.”
