Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has backed his young guns to cope with the pressure of playing at Anfield tomorrow.

Manchester United play away to league leaders, and champions elect, Liverpool, with a massive 27-point gap between the sides.

Liverpool have not dropped points at home in 18 league games but Solskjaer (above) says his players will meet that massive task head on.

"I've had both wins and defeats there at Anfield as a player, so of course you've got to look forward to these games. It's a great challenge for our players, again, to play against the leaders of the league," he says. 

"We've done well against them the last couple of times, but away at Anfield is another matter. It can be an intimidating place.

"But then we've just got to do all the preparations as well as we can, prepare some of these young players who will probably be playing at Anfield for the first time. I'm sure they'll be fine."
