Liverpool v Man Utd: Anfield side could overwhelm like United did - Jermaine Jenas 

Liverpool could rule English football like Manchester United did during the 1990s and 2000s, says previous England midfielder Jermaine Jenas. 

Jurgen Klopp's Premier League pioneers have United on Sunday (16:30 GMT) and go into the game 27 focuses in front of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who are fifth. 

"The hole is so huge between them," said Jenas on BBC Radio 5 Live's Friday Football Social. 

"Klopp has something about overseeing players that Ole is learning." 

Joined won the Premier League multiple times in 21 seasons under Sir Alex Ferguson - who resigned in 2013 - remembering three for a line somewhere in the range of 1999 and 2001 and somewhere in the range of 2007 and 2009. 

Since Ferguson's retirement in 2013, they have just completed in the best two of the top flight once, however they won the FA Cup in 2016 and the EFL Cup and the Europa League in 2017. 

Previous United striker Solskjaer succeeded Jose Mourinho, at first on a brief premise, in December 2018. 

Nonetheless, Jenas feels the Norwegian's style of football will mean the Old Trafford side battle to challenge for titles. Interestingly, Klopp's capacity to fabricate a group and improve players will see the European heroes win more trophies. 

"The one thing that sticks out in my brain is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and what he can do with this gathering of players," said previous Tottenham and Newcastle player Jenas. 

"You can have top players, yet would you be able to make them play a style of football that is equipped for testing this Liverpool group? Liverpool appear as though they'll command as United did in the late 1990s and mid 2000s. 

"Is this a group that can challenge Liverpool for a title? I've not seen it in Solskjaer up 'til now. 

"I don't see that style that can contend with the best. Saying this doesn't imply that it's not possible. Solskjaer will develop as a supervisor, he will learn and adjust." 

Prior to joining Liverpool in 2015, Klopp went through seven years at Borussia Dortmund, directing them to two Bundesliga titles, just as the Champions League last in 2013. 

Jenas included: "Klopp fabricated several groups at Dortmund. He won a class there, got them into a Champions League last. 

"He was a victor with great youthful players. He built up these players. 

"See what he's done [at Liverpool] with Andrew Robertson, Georginio Wijnaldum - who got consigned with Newcastle - and look how Jordan Henderson has advanced in the course of recent years." 

Jenas figures United would be nearer to trying for titles on the off chance that they had ex-Tottenham supervisor Mauricio Pochettino in control. 

"I'm seeing players like Fred begin to seem as though he can carry out a responsibility. Daniel James has been splendid. So the signs are useful for Manchester United and part of me thinks stay with the procedure and stick with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer," he said. 

"Yet, I'd battle to disregard Pochettino. He's nearer to what Klopp is than Solskjaer is, and it would be a speedier procedure to get that group playing a particular sort of football that would win a title."
