Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United are ready to face Liverpool

Burnley v Manchester United- Premier League

The signing of Bruno Fernandes shortly after Burnley won 2-0 at Old Trafford almost a year ago in the last meeting between the sides has transformed United's fortunes.

Former United defender Neville, a cornerstone of the club's success under Sir Alex Ferguson, has admitted that he has been blindsided by their run to the top over the past few months - and that while he is reluctant to say they are headed for the title, they have no reason not to dream big.

Gary Neville has apologised for his commentary during Burnley vs. Manchester United, blaming VAR on social media.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that Manchester United "couldn't have asked for a better time" to play Liverpool, as he told Sky Sports.

The French World Cup victor dominated midfield in the second-half at Turf Moor and fittingly got the victor when his strike from the edge of the box took a deflection off Matt Lowton to wrong-foot Nick Pope.

Paul Pogba scored the all-important goal, with the Frenchman firing home a deflected volley in the 71st-minute to clinch three vital points for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

The win came at the 18th time of asking for Chris Wilder's side, which is still in last place - on just five points and nine points from safety - but there's at least a glimmer of hope of staying up for a team that was challenging for the European positions for much of last season.

"We couldn't be going there at a better time to play them", added Solskjaer.

"We couldn't be going there at a better time to play them because we are in good shape, good form, hungry, these boys want to get better and that's a test again". "He's getting better and better every game".

"We're seeing the best of Paul I feel".

A 1-0 win at Burnley on Tuesday, secured by a deflected volley from Paul Pogba, lifted United above great rival Liverpool to the summit of England's top division after 17 games, approaching the halfway point of the season.

"We adapted really well to the characteristics of the players we had", said Ancelotti.

"I felt we had an identity and it was us with the handbrake off, going for it and playing well in and out of possession".
