The Red Devils are only five points behind Liverpool in the Premier League, with a game in hand, but there is a significant difference between the two teams, according to Aldridge.


The Anfield great feels there is a lack of quality in key areas at Manchester United and believes they have a long distance to go before becoming title challengers.



Aldridge is also of the view that a few players in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side ruin the team’s harmony, which he thinks Jurgen Klopp does not let happen at Liverpool.


Insisting that the sense of unity at Liverpool sets them apart from Manchester United, Aldridge pointed out how players like Paul Pogba affect the atmosphere in the dressing room.



I see Pogba’s agent is hitting the newspapers again trying to agitate for a move in January and when you have players with that kind of attitude at a club, it’s never going to work“, Aldridge wrote in his Sunday World column.


You look at United and compare it to what we see with Premier League champions Liverpool and it’s chalk and cheese.



What Jurgen Klopp has done with his squad is blend together a lot of top players who all have big egos, but he has them all singing from the same hymn sheet and that is part of his brilliance.


Solskjaer has got rid of some of the troublemakers at United, but a few bad eggs still remain and there is also a lack of quality in key areas that means they are well short of a team ready to challenge for the title.


Aldridge will be hopeful that Liverpool continue to enjoy the upper hand over Manchester United in terms of squad harmony as they look to achieve more under Klopp.
