Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said that his team will not beg to Manchester United ahead of the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Man United vs Man City is a crucial match in the determination of Premier League title involving Liverpool and Man City.
At present, Liverpool is still leading the standings with 88 points from 35 matches, while Man City trail behind with 86 points from 34 matches.
After the Manchester Derby, both Manchester City and Liverpool will only face relatively light opponents in the remaining three games.
So, if Man City wins over Man United, Pep Guardiola's team will overtake Liverpool with one point advantage.
On the other hand, if Man City loose points, Liverpool's chances of sealing the title will get strong and end their wait of winning the Premier League.
Alexander-Arnold has a close relationship with two Man United players, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford.
However, Arnold said he would not contact the two ahead of the match against Man City. "Well, I don't think so," he said to reporters when asked if he would contact Lingard or Rashford.
Man United are in the midst of competition with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal to finish in the top four for the ticket to next season's Champions League.
At present, Man United are still ranked sixth with 64 points from 34 matches. Tottenham is ranked third with 70 results from 35 matches, followed by Chelsea with 67 points from 35 matches, and Arsenal with 66 points from 34 matches.
If Man United wins over Man City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will still have the opportunity to enter the top four.
"Without saying it, they know they will do a great favor for us if they get something," Arnold added.
