Having thrashed Watford 5-0 in their latest outing, Liverpool will return to top flight action on Sunday when they travel to Old Trafford to take on arch rivals Manchester United.


Despite heavy investment in player recruitment during the summer, the Red Devils are struggling to find their form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term, while the Reds are currently second in the league table, boasting an undefeated record.



Liverpool legend Aldridge is of the view that Manchester United, with all their star power, are a group of individuals focused on themselves rather than the team, unlike the Merseyside giants.


Aldridge explained that the Reds are better integrated as a unit than Manchester United and have the more balanced squad.



“Man United have got so many options in the final third: [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Mason] Greenwood, [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial, [Jadon] Sancho and [Edinson] Cavani”, Aldridge wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.


“Against Leicester [City, 4-2 loss], they didn’t defend well and got punished.



“They will now be focusing all their attention on how to defend against Liverpool.


“Comparing the two teams, we’re certainly more integrated.


“United are a team of individuals.


“They focus on themselves rather than the team, which is something Liverpool don’t do.


“We’ve got a better balance than them.”


Solskjaer is under pressure to get Manchester United firing on all cylinders soon while Liverpool will be determined to pile the misery on him with a win on Sunday.
