Karius says his side are not afraid of Man United and has warned the visitors that the home support will play a massive role in the result.
‘It will be a big game; I think it will be a close game,’ Karius told Premier League Productions.
“Man United has a good, strong team but we have a great team and we play at home.”
“We have respect for them but we’re not scared of them and we know we want to win the game.”
“We’ll have a good plan – or more than one plan – so we will be well prepared.”
“Monday night at Anfield, the fans will be behind us, so I think everyone’s looking forward to it.’
Liverpool have won four in a row in the league and another three points could send them to the top of the table, should all the other results go their way.
United on the other hand are eager to bounce back from a disappointing 1-1 draw with Stoke last time out.
