Liverpool’s midfielder Adam Lallana believes Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United in Michigan will be like a match between the fierce rivals.
The 107,000-capacity Michigan Stadium, known as The Big House, is set to host the Premier League foes for their International Champions Cup tie as the Reds take another step in their preparations for the upcoming season.
With all the factors ready for the match Lallana expects an event to savour in Ann Arbor.
“Never, no,” the midfielder told the club’s website after Friday’s training session when asked if matches against United can ever be considered friendlies.
“None of these games are, especially when you’ve got the atmosphere and the fans here. It just feels like a normal game and I’m sure that will be the same tonight.
“Obviously the opponents have been a lot tougher since we came out to the States. It’s a magnificent stadium. Hopefully, it will be full and we’ll have another good run-out.”
