Manager Jurgen Klopp opted to have his squad train at the opponent’s stadium, treating the match as a regular European game – which is the opposite to what United did last week.
“When I heard we would play against Manchester United I decided we would come one day early,” he explained. “In a Europa League game it’s always like this.
“It’s not about feeling comfortable and sleeping at home. We had a few seconds in the hotel before we came here (to Old Trafford) and everything is okay: the room is okay, the bed is okay.
“The trip was a little different because we usually fly rather than go by coach but the rest is exactly like a normal European game.
“When I played with my former club in European tournaments I always enjoyed it to breathe the stadium and where you will be playing the next night.”
