Emre Can has encouraged Liverpool’s players to go in hard on the tackle, when they face Manchester United.
Liverpool have not won a game since they beat Leicester City 3-2 and currently occupy the seventh position on the table.
They face a United side that is yet to lose and joint top with City on Saturday and Can believes taking the game to Mourinho’s men will aid their chances of winning.
“It’s for Liverpool the city, the fans and for us,” the Germany midfielder, who opened his account at international level last Sunday, told Liverpool’s official club website.
“It will be a very, very tough game because Manchester United have done very well this season so far. But we know we are strong too and we are really looking forward to the game.
“We have to be hard in the tackles, we have to try to dominate the game and score the goals when we create chances. We will see what happens.
“It’s always special to play at Anfield and now against Manchester United after a few weeks of not playing at Anfield. We are really excited and looking forward to the game and to play at Anfield again.”
