Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits the Red Devils cannot say they are on the same level as Liverpool.

Pogba also thinks Man United can win the Premier League title, but added 'there's a lot of teams that can win it - we are not there yet, we are still very far'.

Man United currently sit top of the points table, while defending Premier League champions Liverpool are second. The two sides face each other in their next game in the English top-flight, and the Old Trafford-based outfit could go six point clear of the Reds if they win the match.

Pogba says to be the best, you have to beat the best, and that Man United want to beat the Premier League champions. "We have improved a lot, we keep improving but we still have a very young team. Obviously we cannot say now we are at the same level as them because they won the Premier League and keep winning. So the day we win, that is when we say we are at the same level," Pogba told Sky Sports [via Goal].

He added: "If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. We want to beat the Premier League winners. We know how good they have been playing over the last few years - we know their quality and how they play. It's always been a tough game.

“We know how difficult it will be and we just have to focus and try to stay at the top. I think we can win it if we keep our focus but there's a lot of teams that can win it - we are not there yet, we are still very far.”
