​Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has taunted Liverpool players on ​Twitter ahead of the huge showdown between the two clubs on Sunday.

The Frenchman tagged his former Southampton teammates Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and compatriot Mamadou Sakho in a post on the social media site, telling them 'We are coming for you..'

Liverpool have signed many of Schneiderlin's former teammates, which includes Clyne, Lallana and also Dejan Lovren, meaning he should be very familiar with a lot of the opposition on the pitch.

He was a long servant at St Mary's, and was among a talented group that rose through League One all the way to the Premier League in successive promotions under Nigel Adkins. Liverpool's Adam Lallana was one of those players, as well as former Red Rickie Lambert.

The game bares huge significance for both sides, who have each had their struggles in the league this season. Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has faced mass criticism from fans and pundits over his playing style at Old Trafford, with his side sitting in 6th place. 

Liverpool have lacked consistency all season and are languishing in 9th, although their impressive display against Arsenal in the 3-3 draw should give them confidence that they can hurt United.
