Daniel Sturridge believes Liverpool are in the right mindset to beat Manchester United ahead of the meeting between the two sides at Anfield on Sunday.
A win for fifth-placed Liverpool could see Brendan Rodgers’ side leapfrog Man United into fourth place.
It is a massive game and one that could go a long way in deciding who finishes in the top four of the Premier League this season.
Sturridge insists Liverpool will approach the game with the right mentality and that they are confident of beating United.
Speaking about the game, Sturridge said: ”It’s going to be a big game for us. We’re going into the game looking to win it, as we always do, and we’re looking forward to it.
“We’ll go into this game with the right mentality, we’ll look to play our football and to try to go out there and win the game.
“That’s the most important thing – to play our football. If we do that then hopefully everything will take care of itself.”
Prior to the 3-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, fans may have been concerned going into the clash against Liverpool.
However, a superb result and performance against Spurs has been the catalyst for a fresh wave of optimism at Old Trafford. Of course, form is irrelevant when it comes to games between United and Liverpool, but the win has set up Louis van Gaal’s side nicely ahead of a vital game in their season.
