Paris, March 16: Five-time European champions Liverpool will aim to finish off eternal rivals Manchester United when England's two most successful sides clash in the Europa League last 16, second leg at Old Trafford on Thursday.
Leading 2-0 from the first leg at Anfield, Liverpool are well placed to reach the quarter-finals of a competition that realistically represents the best chance for either club to qualify for next season's Champions League.
Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino scored as Jurgen Klopp's side dominated the first European meeting between the two Premier League giants, and Sturridge says Liverpool's mindset won't change despite their healthy advantage.
"We'll approach the second leg exactly the same as we did the first leg. That's the only way we know," Sturridge told the Liverpool Echo.
"The Liverpool way is to win games so we will go into the second leg and be positive.
"The confidence is there within the camp and we are just looking forward to every game. We are mentally prepared for every job we have ahead of us."
United face a tough task to turn things around as Liverpool have kept four straight clean sheets in Europe and are unbeaten in nine games in this season's competition.    ?AFP
