Nathaniel Clyne has urged Liverpool to "be at Manchester United's throats" when they travel to Old Trafford this weekend.

Brendan Rodgers' side go into Saturday's game having lost 3-0 at home to West Ham before the start of the international break. Meanwhile, United lost their last match, 2-1 at Swansea City.

It means that Saturday's late kick-off has taken on extra importance for both sides as they look to get their seasons back on track.

"One of the reasons I signed for Liverpool is to play in big matches like this," summer signing Clyne told the club's website.

"Working hard, playing on the front foot and taking the game to them is going to be key. We can't allow them to pass the ball around as they like to or have too much free space."


The 24-year-old added: "We need to be at their throats from the start, not let them settle in the game, and with the quality we have up front we can cause them problems."

Clyne, who has six England caps and started against San Marino last Friday, was part of the Southampton side that won at Old Trafford last season.

"Playing at Old Trafford last season with Southampton and getting the three points was a great feeling," he said.

"We played really well, and you have to be on top of your game if you want to come away with three points."
