Kenny Dalglish: Liverpool are best team in England…and Man Utd won’t score
Liverpool are the best team in England at the moment following their incredible run of form, according to Kop legend Kenny Dalglish.
The club idol is also confident the Merseysiders will dispatch Manchester United in tomorrow’s crunch match, who he doesn’t think will even score a goal.
The Red Devils are two points clear of their arch rivals in the league after an impressive 3-0 win over Tottenham last week that has boosted their confidence going into this week’s match.
But with the Anfield side at home and on a 13 game unbeaten run that stretches back to when they lost in December – ironically to United – Liverpool are also confident going into the game.
They have also equalled a club record of not conceding an away goal during their last six matches, as boss Brendan Rodgers seems to have found a system that works for his previously struggling side.
And Dalglish says the fact players have settled and adjusted to the system will make them a difficult proposition in front of their own fans.
“Since Brendan Rodgers changed Liverpool’s formation late last year I have not seen a better team in England,” he wrote in his column in the Mirror.
“Some of the most impressive things about them have been their discipline, organisation and the willingness of everybody to work their socks off when they don’t have the ball – to get back into their position and make it difficult for the opposition.
“They are all key ingredients if you want to have a successful team, and now they are pretty settled in terms of selection, too.
“Liverpool are really organised defensively and if Manchester United don’t get hold of whoever plays off Daniel Sturridge – Philippe Coutinho, Raheem Sterling or Adam Lallana – at Anfield on Sunday, they will have a hard game in front of them.
“That is why I’m predicting a Liverpool win – and I don’t think United will score either.
“Sunday’s result won’t be conclusive in terms of who finishes in the top four. But the psychology of winning could be a big factor, though.”
