Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag reckons his players will thrive playing at a raucous Anfield when they face off against bitter rivals Liverpool this Sunday.
Ten Hag’s side goes into Sunday’s clash in superb form, they currently sit in third in the Premier League table, 10 points and three places above Jurgen Klopp’s out-of-sorts Liverpool.
While Klopp quite rightly pointed out that form often goes out the window in grudge matches between these two historical rivals, Manchester United will surely be aware that a win on Sunday will not only consolidate their own place in the top it could also deliver a potential hammer blow to Liverpool’s hopes.
Coming on the back of recent wins over Barcelona and a Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle at Wembley, Ten Hag reckons his team enjoy playing in hostile environments.
“I think, away from home, we have had some really good performances,” Ten Hag told his pre-match press conference.
“For me it is no different. The pitch everywhere is the same size. There are the same number of referees. The ball is round. There is air in the ball. So we have to play and to make it our game.
“Of course, we know the ambience will not be supporting us. You have to deal with that but, as I said, our players like it. They like to play in this atmosphere.”
