Georginio Wijnaldum says Liverpool need to be very wary of arch-rivals Manchester United when the two sides clash this weekend.
Liverpool are the only remaining unbeaten team in England’s top five divisions but Wijnaldum does not believe they are invincible and must maintain their work-rate to preserve that record.

The next test comes on Sunday at home to United, who despite already being 16 points behind in seventh place will pose a threat at Anfield.
Wijnaldum believes Jose Mourinho’s side are undergoing a blip and are in a false position, which is why they will not underestimate them.
“Things can happen, everyone can have a bad season,” he said. “I think the year before I came Liverpool finished eighth so those things can happen. That does not mean they are not a good team with good players.
“Last season with the same players they finished second. One season goes well, one season a little bit more difficult. “It doesn’t mean they have a bad team: they have good players, a good manager, and they know how to manage games and win games – or not to lose games. It is going to be difficult.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
