Paul Pogba urges Manchester United to 'keep calm' ahead of Liverpool clash

Paul Pogba has urged Manchester United to "keep calm" ahead of their match against Liverpool.

The Frenchman scored the only goal as United beat Burnley 1-0 to go top of the Premier League table and has warned his teammates not to get carried away before their crunch clash at Anfield on Sunday (17.01.21).

Pogba told BBC Sport: "It will be a beautiful game for everyone.

"It's a big game coming up so let's get ready for it.

"We knew if we won tonight we would be top of the league when we play Liverpool," Pogba said.

"We have to keep calm, now it is the big moment. We will see what is going to happen."

United taking top spot has led to predictions that they are in the title race and the former Red Devils captain Gary Neville believes his former team can challenge.

The Sky Sports pundit said: "To go top of the league before Sunday, it feels like a big moment.

"Six to eight weeks ago you didn't think they would be anywhere near. Now something is building, a spirit is growing, you can see the togetherness.

"Eight weeks ago, Liverpool were everyone's certainties. No-one is getting carried away, it could easily turn the other way but the fact they are in a title race … wow. You have to give credit to the players.

"It is a strange season. Why shouldn't Manchester United fans believe, why shouldn't this team believe? They have some fantastic players. I don't think it will be a comfortable few days for Liverpool. They didn't expect this."
