Owen Hargreaves is adamant that Jurgen Klopp will set out his Liverpool FC team to beat Manchester Unitd at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Reds will make the short trip to Manchester United in search of a fourth successive Premier League victory after their recent impressive run of form.

Liverpool FC are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games to put pressure on second-placed Manchester United in a competitive top-four race.

The Merseyside outfit hoisted themselves above Manchester United and into second place in the table following a 2-0 win over Newcastle last weekend.

However, Manchester United reclaimed second spot after a last-gasp 3-2 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night.

Jose Mourinho adopted a conservative approach to Manchester United’s trip to Liverpool FC in October after the Premier League clash ended in a goalless draw at Anfield.

Former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves doesn’t anticipate Klopp adopting a similar approach to Old Trafford this weekend.

“That fixture against Manchester United is so important,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.

“Obviously top place in the Premier League is gone but that second place is still up for grabs.

“Jurgen Klopp will be confident that he can go to Old Trafford and not only get a point – I think he’ll go there to try and get a win.”

Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and seven points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea FC.

The Reds signed Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk in a club record £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.
