Our no.6’s brilliant volleyed winner at Turf Moor on Tuesday night secured a vital 1-0 win over Burnley to put us three points ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side at the Premier League summit.

The two sides meet on Merseyside on Sunday afternoon in what is always a mouth-watering clash. Now, with top spot at stake, there feels even more added importance to this latest test between the duo, but Pogba maintains that nothing will be decided in the title race this weekend.

“We know the story. We know it’s Liverpool. Everybody knows it. We know they’re second, they know we’re first. We know if we win we have six points [on them], everybody knows that,“ he explained.

”It’s not the game, yes it’s a game and it’s going to be a hard game. But I don’t think this game will decide the league. I know it’s going to make a difference, but it won’t decide the league. We have to take it as a hard game in the league, not as the game. There are going to be a lot of games that will make the difference and be very important.

“I know it’s an important game, but all the games are. We don’t have to make it too much about ‘ah it’s the game’. It’s Liverpool and when it’s Liverpool it’s always a big game, we know that. We just have to keep calm and keep our focus and we’ll see.”

Asked further about the match being such a key one for the fans, Pogba added: “Of course, it’s Liverpool, the neighbours, we know the story. I know the story. When you arrive in Manchester you know the story about Liverpool and Manchester United. We know it’s a big game.

“When you play at United there are always big games but this one is a battle. It’s going to be a battle.”

Pogba is also fully aware that a battle lies ahead for the remainder of the season when it comes to the title race, but he insists the Reds are ready for what's to come.

“Of course. We’re there but we know it’s going to be tough, very, very difficult. We know it. Beautiful things don’t come easy, so we know we’re going to have to get through this. We’re there and it’s going to be very hard. How much we want it, that’s the question because I think we can [do it].“

Pressed on how much United want it, he declared: ”Very much, very much. It’s hard work, but we have to keep the focus and keep our heads and keep doing what we’ve been doing. The last game, winning like that, makes the difference I think.

“You never know in this league, it’s always very hard. I think we’ve been doing great with our results and performance, all of the team. It’s our focus. We know we can do it and we have to believe. Anything can happen.“
