Manchester United take on Liverpool on Monday night in what is expected to be an enthralling encounter between two of the fiercest rivals in English football.

Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho will face off for the second time in the Premier League, the first coming in the German's first league win as Reds boss in a 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

The two sides will be going into the game in contrasting form - Liverpool having won their last four in a row whilst United have only gained four points from their last four.

One of the factors that could decide the game are the new summer signings. Klopp purchased the likes of Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Loris Karius while we all know about the Red Devils' key signings; Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and of course, Paul Pogba.

And despite Pogba's slow start to his second stint at Old Trafford, he will be key in determining whether United come away with the three points or not.

Prior to tomorrow's game, the world record signing appeared on French TV in an interview conducted by Telefoot.

In response to those that have been critical of him thus far, Pogba said the following:

The Frenchman admitted that it will take him time to adapt to the Premier League, after playing for Juventus in Serie A for the past four years.

He has so far scored one goal for United in six league appearances and will be hoping to help his team to a memorable victory tomorrow night.

Many fans, even those not supporting United, would have been keen to see how Pogba and Ibrahimovic's relationship developed.

And it sounds like Pogba has answered the question by revealing that the Swedish legend is like a big brother to him.

It must be a dream come true for many of the younger players to play alongside Ibrahimovic, and it seems that Pogba is no different. 

We'll be sure to keep a close eye on their partnership as the season progresses - starting tomorrow at Anfield.
