According to Liverpool captain, Andrew Robertson, Manchester United’s form counts for nothing as they are about to face each other this weekend.
Liverpool is currently in the first position of the English Premier League with a perfect run after eight games.
And 15 points behind comes Manchester United.
This is why Reds captain Andrew Robertson has warned his teammates that form doesn’t count on this English Premier League match.
“I don’t think it matters what your form is like in these games. It doesn’t matter that we’ve won eight on the bounce and they’re struggling,” he told Metro.
“It’s Man United v Liverpool. It will be a one-off game and we’ll see who comes out on top.”
Robertson added: “I think what makes it so special is that it’s historic.”
“There have been such great battles down the years. And they’ve always had top teams who have always fought against each other for everything on the pitch.”
“It’s always like that. And it’s genuinely a different atmosphere when you play against them. It’s a historic stadium, nice, though I prefer Anfield,” he said.
“The atmosphere is good, too. There is always an edge to it. It’s a proper game and, sometimes, it gets played like a cup tie.”
“I have no doubt that they’ll produce a reaction after a poor performance against Newcastle,” he continued.
“I’m absolutely sure that they will be firing and wanting to kick-start their season. For them, there would be no better time to do it than against us.”
