Manchester United need to improve to beat Liverpool

Manchester United showed plenty of character in Monday's come-from-behind Premier League win over Crystal Palace but they need to show improvement when Liverpool visit Old Trafford at the weekend, midfielder Nemanja Matic has said.

Matic scored his first United goal with a superb volleyed added-time winner as they recovered from two goals down to seal a 3-2 victory that took them back up to second place above Liverpool ahead of Saturday's blockbuster Premier League clash.

With runaway leaders Manchester City closing in on their third league title in seven seasons, attention has shifted to the fight for Champions League qualification and United's battle with Liverpool to finish second behind their neighbours.

Jose Mourinho's United side have 62 points and lead the Merseyside club by two with nine game remaining.

Both clubs are also targeting European glory, with Liverpool reaching the Champions League quarter-finals after a 5-0 aggregate win over Porto while United face Sevilla in the return leg of their last 16 clash on Tuesday having drawn 0-0 away.

United host Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup quarter-finals on the Saturday following the match with the Spaniards.
