Manchester United v Liverpool: What has been said?

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “We’ll rotate, that’s for sure. We’ll put a decent team together of course, a team I feel can win the game.

“Of course you want to get your hands on that first trophy, but it’s always the league position that’s the measure of how far you have come.

“Anyone can have an easy cup run, I’m not one of those. I never get an easy cup run!

“I’m never going to watch a draw ever again because we always seem to pick out the difficult opponents. 

“In a cup run, sometimes you can get to a final without really playing any of the top ones.

“This time around, we’ve picked one of the favourites and we know this is a big one if you want to go all the way.”
