Liverpool trained at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening, ahead of Thursday’s Europa League second leg against Man United.

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.”
