Liverpool are a ‘better team’ than ‘ordinary’ Man Utd – Aldridge
John Aldridge says Liverpool have “proved” they are a “better team” than Manchester United and urges Jurgen Klopp’s side to show they “mean business” in the Premier League title race.
Bruno Fernandes has helped catapult Man Utd level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table with the Red Devils set to go three points clear if they can beat Burnley on Tuesday night.
After that they face Liverpool next Sunday in a crucial clash as the race for the Premier League title heats up.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge said: “You can give the strikers as much finishing as they want or work through drills with the defence but Jurgen Klopp will be making his players aware of what United are good at this week.
“What they are good at is getting the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford on the ball – they’re the danger.
“The rest of their team is pretty ordinary, they’d be coming in fifth or sixth place but those two make them into a team.
“Klopp won’t be going overboard on United this week because we are a better team and we’ve proved that. They’ve simply come closer and it’s about getting the lads to show we mean business.
“We’re in the business part of the season and we need to start now, with the likes of United in particular. It’s time to get back on track.”
