HARRY MAGUIRE has taunted Liverpool by claiming Manchester United “expect” to end their incredible Anfield record today.
Champions Liverpool are unbeaten at home for a whopping 67 matches, a run stretching nearly three years.

“And whatever anyone says on the outside, we go into every game not only wanting to win but expected — and expecting — to win.
“We don’t need to hype this one up, everyone knows how important it is.
“And there is definitely a feeling that we can go anywhere and beat anyone.
“That’s the mentality we have in this dressing room — winning at all costs.
“It’s something we have changed round, we’ve made that the environment we’re in now.”
United go to the home of their fiercest rivals topping the table at this stage of a season for the first time since legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
Victory would not only end Liverpool’s proud home record but also send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side six points clear of the Premier League champions at the top of the table.

And Maguire added: “Of course it will be tough to go there and get a result.
“But we are confident, we are Manchester United, and we know we can win any game, whoever we play.
“We will have a long conversation before the kick-off, and I’ll keep what I will say to myself until then. But it’s not about any battle speech, it’s about mentality.
“We put big pressure on ourselves, not just to win games but to win things.
“We finished third last year, got to those semi- finals, and we want to improve — we need to improve.
“We want to go further this time and we have that winning mentality back amongst the group.
“You play for this club to win things and the first target is to step up on last year. We’re getting better but there’s still a long way to go.
“No way are we the finished article — once we are, that’s when we’ll get to where we want to be.”
