Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to some comments from Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic, who claims he would not take any Liverpool defender in Manchester United’s side.
Liverpool travel to Old Trafford on Sunday knowing a win over their arch-rivals will put them at the summit of the Premier League.
Manchester City will of course be playing in the Carabao Cup final, so this is a huge chance for the Reds to make a statement, and they are boosted by the return of Virgil van Dijk, who was suspended for the draw against Bayern Munich.

Vidic clearly doesn’t think the Dutch international’s presence will make all the difference though, claiming he wouldn’t feature in United’s side.
Speaking to Omnisport, as reported by GOAL.com, he said: “I think we have four solid defenders and with the right match I think they can perform to the best of their capabilities.
“Overall, I said even before when they didn’t have great games, if you look at the other teams, I would not have any defenders of Liverpool or Chelsea, I don’t think they have better defenders than we have.”
While Victor Lindelof has improved massively under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Swedish international is usually partnered with inconsistent players like Eric Bailly or Chris Smalling.
On top of that, van Dijk is currently the front-runner for PFA Player of the Year and has perhaps been Europe’s best defender so far this season, so fans are understandably crucifying Vidic’s verdict.

To be fair you probably don’t want to admit your biggest rivals have the best CB in the world a day before facing them ?
