Liverpool in pursuit of record against Manchester United
Premier League Have won 17 games in a row
“We’re not looking to maintain the run, only to win,” Klopp said after Liverpool‘s 2-1 in over Leicester before the international break.
Liverpool are top of the Premier League table having won each of their opening eight fixtures – a feat no Liverpool coach has managed since Kenny Dalglish did it in 1990.
“We are pretty relaxed but ambitious as well.”
Liverpool haven’t actually dropped a point since their 0-0 draw against Everton in March and they could extend their lead at the top of the table to eight points.
“We just have to make sure that, if they want to change it, they start a week later and that’s all.”
Despite United’s lowly finishes in recent years in the Premier League, Liverpool haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2014 when Brendan Rodgers‘ side were on the right side of a 3-0 scoreline.
While Liverpool have gone on a 17-match winning run, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s men have picked up just 17 points.
The two rivals are 15 points apart in the Premier League – the biggest gap at this stage of the season ever.
