Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would welcome Sir Alex Ferguson giving his Manchester United team talk on Sunday, to hammer home just how much it would mean to beat Liverpool.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer joked Sir Alex Ferguson will take Manchester United's team talk

United host Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, in the reverse fixture of Jose Mourinho’s miserable last game as boss – a 3-1 defeat at Anfield. And Solskjaer says his players are up for denting Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes although he is open to additional inspiration.

Solskjaer wants his players to know how important the visit of Liverpool on Sunday is

‘We know how big the game is for Manchester United, the staff and supporters. We want to build this team into one that is worthy of United’s history and it’s another step if we can win this at home. The gaffer (Ferguson) would be welcome to talk to the players if he wanted to because we know how much it meant to him to overtake Liverpool.

He believes his players have to show they have learned from that experience

‘I played in a few of these myself and I know the magnitude of it. We’ve been looking forward to it. We have to stay focused and controlled – but with some fight in us as well,’ said Solskjaer.

Asked if he would prefer Tottenham to win the title ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City, Solskjaer replied: ‘I don’t really get myself involved in that – but maybe!’
