Manchester United star Paul Pogba has admitted the club are not at the same level as Premier League champions Liverpool just yet, ahead of the top-of-table clash at Anfield on Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sits top of the table, three points ahead of their old rivals current going into the encounter, having won nine out of the last 11 games.
Although Pogba says his side can win their first Premier League trophy since 2013, the France midfielder believes their title credentials will be severely tested on Sunday.
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, Pogba said: “We have improved a lot, we keep improving but we still have a very young team.
“Obviously we cannot say now we are at the same level as them because they won the Premier League and keep winning so the day we win – that is when we say we are at the same level.
“If you want to be the best you have to beat the best. We want to beat the Premier League winners.
“I really can’t say that [this is the best Man Utd team I’ve been part of]. I think the last time Man Utd was first in this time was the Sir Alex Ferguson time. So you can tell there has been an improvement.
“We know how good they have been playing over the last few years – we know their quality and how they play. It’s always been a tough game. We know how difficult it will be and we just have to focus and try to stay at the top.
“I think we can win it if we keep our focus but there’s a lot of teams that can win it – we are not there yet, we are still very far.”
