Don Hutchison believes Liverpool now have an “arrogance” about them on the pitch that makes them such a difficult opponent to beat.
The Merseyside giants have made an excellent start to the season and have a 100 per cent win record from the opening eight Premier League games.
After missing out on the league title by a point last season, Jurgen Klopp’s side are once again chasing silverware and as it stands are eight points clear of reigning champions Manchester City.
The Reds did win the Champions League last season to cement their spot as one of the best teams around right now and are a force all over the pitch.
They travel to Old Trafford on Sunday to face old rivals Manchester United in their next match and it’s a fixture they have struggled in.
Ex-Liverpool player Hutchison feels that his former team do have such a confidence about them now when they play and that it’s key to their success.
“If United go 1-0 behind inside 15-20 minutes Liverpool will swarm all over them,” Hutchison told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
“Now they have got an arrogance about them in a good way where they are European champions and they’re swatting teams.
“Normally the conversation when Liverpool play teams like Burnley is ’this is a tough place to go’, all of a sudden now Liverpool have got that arrogance.”
TBR’ s View:
Despite previous struggles at Old Trafford, Liverpool should travel to Manchester with extreme confidence of another three points and maintaining their perfect start to the campaign.
They set a remarkable standard last season that somehow wasn’t enough to win the title, but they look even more determined to succeed this season.
Manchester United sit 12th in the league table and have made a horrid start to the season, but they will definitely find something extra for the visit of Liverpool and the atmosphere will be hostile.
Klopp’s team will wrap up another win if they play anywhere near their best and it’s just about keeping composure.
