The Senegalese striker, motivated with the qualification to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League, the red team aspires to defeat Manchester United and reach the second spot in the English Premier League.

Liverpool will visit Old Trafford on Saturday and try to beat Manchester United after booking a place in the Champions League quarterfinals, said Sadio Mané.

The Reds have thrilled their fans this season, with Mané forming part of a formidable trident with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Despite the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona last January, the team of Jürgen Klopp fights to finish in second place in the Premier League and is still alive in the top European competition.

After a 0-0 draw with Porto, after a convincing 5-0 first leg, and securing a place among the eight best in the Champions League, now Liverpool’s spotlight is on the match against United and in their fight to finish as runner-up of the season.

“It will not be easy, but I have always said that we can beat any team in the world”, said Mané, quoted by Sky Sports.

“Honestly they [Manchester United] are one of the best teams in England, of course in the world too, but so are we. It is the dream of each and every player to play these types of games because everyone is waiting for them.” he added.

The goalkeeper Loris Karius coindied with the attacker: “It is a very important game for us, for the club, for the fans, of course they have a good team and we respect them, but we don’t fear anyone. We have a lot of confidence in ourselves and our own capabilities, we know we can beat them. “

“We want to go straight to the Champions again, the second (place) would obviously be ideal”, he added.

In just nine games away from the end of the season, Liverpool is third with 60 points, just two behind Manchester United (62).
