Michael Owen believes Manchester United could learn a lesson from arch-rival Liverpool after claiming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s players are “at best staying still, but most of all regressing.”

Already seven points behind Premier League leader Liverpool after just four games of the season, United takes on Leicester on Saturday having managed just one victory so far this term.

Owen, who played for both clubs during an illustrious playing career, believes the ability of Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp to improve his players and take them to the next level has been a key part of the team’s success.

While Liverpool ended last season by finishing second in the Premier League and winning the European Champions League, United recorded a sixth place finish, 32 points adrift of champion Manchester City.

And Owen says Klopp’s coaching and ability to constantly draw the very best from his players is something United should take note from.
