Arsenal legend Ray Parlour insists Manchester United can’t afford to go two goals down against Liverpool because a comeback won’t be possible.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had to come from two goals down against Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek as Cristiano Ronaldo netted a late winner to complete a 3-2 win at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese did the same in the 2-1 win against Villarreal as he struck in injury-time to complete a turnaround having initially fallen behind.

But with Liverpool visiting United this afternoon, Parlour has warned the Red Devils they’ll be no such outcome if Jurgen Klopp’s men take the lead.

‘They won’t be able to come from 2-0 down against Liverpool. We all know how good Liverpool are,’ he said on talkSPORT.

‘Going forward they have been excellent – [Roberto] Firmino, Salah… they have got to sign him up as quickly as they can!

‘United have got world-beaters, as well, and it’s all about taking your chances in big games like this.

‘It should be a cracking game. Man United and Liverpool, the rivalry. We talk about El Clasico, as well, but that’s not the same now. What would you rather watch? There’s only one winner.’

Liverpool also go into the match off the back of a 3-2 win in Europe as they came out on top against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The visitors can go second in the Premier League table with victory today and Parlour feels Klopp certainly won’t be playing for a draw against their arch rivals.

Parlour added: ‘Liverpool have got the better form, but form goes out the window.

‘They will be going for the win and Jurgen Klopp never sets up to go for a draw. He will be going; “Right, come on lads, we are bang in form at the moment.”

‘Intensity is very important; “Let’s get at their defence and try get that first goal.”

‘That could be the difference, but United have got match-winners, as well. It’s set up very, very nicely.’
