Jurgen Klopp believes Manchester United have improved defensively since Ralf Rangnick arrived at Old Trafford.

Liverpool host United at Anfield on Tuesday night, with Klopp’s side aiming to overtake Manchester City and reach the top of the Premier League, while a win for the visitors would put them level on points with fourth-placed Tottenham.

United were in abysmal form heading into the game, having won just two of their last eight games in all competitions.

But Klopp is adamant United still pose a major threat.

Asked what improvements United have made since Rangnick replaced Solskjaer, Klopp said on Monday: “Obviously I think Ralf has been trying to organize the team so with the squad they have it’s a clear one introduce structure.

“United have played some really, really good games but because it’s United, even if you win the games it’s difficult to gain some momentum, I imagine.

“But they certainly concede fewer goals.

“They’ve lost some points, when you put them on their points list you suddenly see they’re fourth in the table and being fourth in the Premier League means you’re a quality side because the other opponents have you, it’s insane how consistent you’ve been to get anywhere close to this area.

“You see Tottenham flying at the moment, they’ve had a little drop [against Brighton]but the quality they have is amazing.

“Chelsea are so strong, we’re all still fighting to qualify for next year’s Champions League, if we can do that then we can think of something else from that moment on.

“But United are in that group too and that says a lot about the quality they have.”

Klopp added: “United are obviously in a situation where they won the last game, they weren’t happy with the performance but the result and results from other games opened the door again for the Champions League.

“And that is the Man United that we are going to face now. You will try.

“I’m sure if they want to qualify for the Champions League they’ll have to give up our points, but they’ll have to play an intense 90, 95 minutes to get there.”
