Liverpool are yet to drop a single point in the Premier League this season and next up they travel to Old Trafford to take on Man United.
Historically this fixture has been the feather on the hat of the league but this time the game has been on the limelight for all the wrong reasons.
While Liverpool will be hoping to keep their unbeaten run going, Man United, on the other hand, will be trying to keep themselves afloat by winning this match.
The Red Devils are currently 12th in the league table – just two points off the relegation zone and if they fail to win on Sunday then they might very well drop down into the bottom three.
But according to Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool are not taking Man United lightly since the Old Trafford outfit can bounce back at any second.
He told Sky Sports: “For them, it is not the ideal situation to lose your first-choice goalkeeper, one of the best in the world, and one of their main midfielders.
“They will be disappointed but for us, we just want to focus on ourselves.
“They want to bounce back for all they’ve done this season and it’s not what they’ve wanted so far, but we want to go out there and extend our points tally and keep winning.
“They’re not in the best way, they’re not fully confident and they’re not in the situation they want to be in.
“But the good thing about football is you can bounce back in any game. They might think this is the best occasion to bounce back from it but we know that.
“We want to go out and fight for every metre on the pitch and try and take the three points back to Liverpool.
“It’s massive, but it’s more massive for the fans. I think all of the Champions League games are as big as this. The whole atmosphere and leading to the actual game is bigger than some other games but I don’t think it’s the biggest of the season.
“The big ones are the Champions League and the ones that are hopefully going to win us the Premier League title.”
