Manchester United and Liverpool come toe-to-toe on Sunday in a huge Premier League clash in the battle for a top-four finish, in what should be a thrilling encounter at Old Trafford.
Liverpool currently have the advantage in the Premier League standing’s but a victory for the Red Devils this weekend would cut the gap to just two points, whilst potentially lifting United into the top-four if other results go their way.
Speaking to BBC Sport ahead of the clash, Pogba stated it was the most important derby of the season- ahead of the all-Manchester clash against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
“The history of Liverpool vs. Manchester United — it’s a big derby. More than Man City, I think, because of the way you feel that the atmosphere is more.”
“I want to win. I want three points. It’s good to win three points against Stoke City, any team in the league, but it’s even better, you have more taste, when you win three points against Liverpool because it’s the derby, you know.”
With Pogba finding form in recent matches, and United enjoying a six-match winning run, the hosts for this weekend’s clash are rated as the favourites, although Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool could present a tough test.
