John Aldridge sends warning to Man United ahead of Liverpool FC clash

Karius makes a save from youngster Cameron Brannagan during a training match

Jose Mourinho's United have been in superb form this season, winning six of their seven league fixtures and also sealing two convincing victories in the Champions League.

£75 million summer signing Romelu Lukaku seems to have fit in perfectly in the famous red shirt, scoring 10 goals in just nine appearances so far, while Marouane Fellaini appears more important than ever after few terrible initial years at Manchester United, although he has been ruled out for at least a month with a knee injury.

Writing in his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldridge said: "This weekend's game is a big one, with a lot riding on it". Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has come under severe scrutiny following another winless result away at Newcastle United last weekend and the German coach will be desperate to come out on top against Liverpool's arch-rivals.

"There are great similarities between what he achieved at Dortmund, what he was expected to achieve - which was to compete with an absolute behemoth in Bayern Munich, while spending less money, both on wages and in the transfer market".

A tactical masterclass is expected to be on show when Manchester United travel to Liverpool in what is our biggest test of the Premier League season so far.

"I like to play against the best teams, I like to play against the best clubs and I like to play at the best stadiums - the stadiums with more history", he told Sky Sports.

Jose Mourinho is aiming to become the first manager to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's final campaign in charge in the 2012-13 campaign. I think most Liverpool fans would feel that the team began under Brendan Rodgers with a very new, highly attacking, attractive way of football. "He is the right man for the job and that's going to take five years, not two years".
