Ralph Rangnick made an intriguing claim regarding Manchester United and Liverpool before the team meeting.
Manchester United face Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday evening.
The game is a must for both sides, as Liverpool look to beat Manchester City at the top of the Premier League and Manchester United look to gain some ground over fourth-placed Tottenham.
However, in truth, United are a dangerous underdog in this clash with Liverpool now a tier higher than their arch rival.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are still on track to win a quadruple, while Manchester United are not even guaranteed a place in next season’s Champions League.

Ralph Rangnick for Liverpool
Over the years, Manchester United and Liverpool have been some of the fiercest rivalries in England, and for most of the Premier League, it was Manchester United who dominated.
However, after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool are now on top of the mountain.
And while Man United struggled after Ferguson, Ralf Rangnick sees it as “not rocket science” to bridge the gap with Liverpool:
“I don’t think a club like Manchester United can take three or four years to achieve that, and I don’t think it’s necessary,” said Rangnick. She said.
“We talked about Liverpool earlier, how long it took them. After two or three transfer windows if you know what you’re looking for. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you’ll always look for the needle in the haystack.
“It’s not that complicated, it’s not rocket science, but in order to get the best wind possible you have to know where your destination is. If you don’t know that, it’s always difficult.”
