Red Devils defender Axel Tuanzebe believes the team needs a victory boost when they play against the Reds in two weeks in the Premier League.
The Red Devils lost 1-0 on Sunday to Newcastle United and have not gotten a win in the last five games.
And for United defender Axel Tuanzebe the team needs an important win, like when they play against Liverpool in two weeks.
“It’s always a big game. Through my academy stages, Liverpool is a must-win,” Tuanzebe told MUTV.
“It’s a brutal game. It wasn’t a tippy-tappy game; no matter what age group.”
The defender added: “Obviously coming here to the first team, I expect more of the same. It will be a game where we need to grind it out and stick together and produce a result.”
“Now it’s just that tough phase. The next game we look forward to is Liverpool. [We] definitely want to get a result in that game.”
“You can see [against Newcastle] we shut them out for a long period of time,” the 21-year-old continued.
“The only way they were able to score was a counter when we weren’t really there. The goal, it is what it is: a 20-yard shot, it wasn’t like they played through us or anything like that.”
