Matic: Manchester United are ready

Nemanja Matic has revealed that Manchester United know what they need to do to stop Liverpool in the derby.

The Serbian has not lost at Anfield in his career, winning on both of his visits to Merseyside when playing under manager Jose Mourinho with Chelsea.
The now-United boss has again prepared his players for what lies ahead in the derby, according to the midfielder who was brought to Old Trafford by Mourinho during the summer.

-We have prepared very well, the manager got some videos for us to see what (Liverpool) have in their team and how we can stop them, so I'm sure we will be ready for them," Matic said.

Liverpool have been quick starters this season with six of their 13 goals this season coming within the first 30 minutes of their games so far, while their opponents have netted just three in that time.

But in the later stages it has been United who have been prolific, with 10 of their 21 goals arriving in the last 15 minutes of games compared to Liverpool's solitary goal in the same period.
