Here is old Captain Marvel looking ahead to United’s crucial game on Saturday against Liverpool-:
As a player you always looked forward to games between Manchester United and Liverpool because the two teams were also pushing for the title or cup competitions.
There is also a great rivalry between the clubs and you were playing against some of the best players in the league.
They were nearly always important games and that’s exactly the situation with the game on Saturday.
I believe that if Manchester United beat Liverpool that they will win the title.
Realistically, the gap over Chelsea will be 12 points but it will be more like 13 because of United’s superior goal difference.
And, I don’t think they will lose that type of lead with only single figure games to go.
If they lose, Chelsea will still be in there with a shout but because of the advantage United have they will still be favourites.
A great memory from Anfield is when we were getting beat 3-1 and were down to 10 men – We came back to draw 3-3
Form goes out the window in this fixture. It’s who turns up on the day. Both are playing well and have something to aim for – Man Utd the title and Liverpool want to secure a Champions League place.
A match that sticks out for me as a great memory from Anfield is when we were getting beat 3-1 and were down to 10 men.
We came back to draw 3-3 and even then Gordon Strachan had a great chance to win the game for us.
The rivalry surrounding the fixture comes from both teams being successful and close to each other geographically plus they have always had great players.
You don’t really come across the Liverpool fans because you are in a hotel over Manchester way and you drive to Liverpool on the day of the game.
The only time you are exposed to Liverpool fans is when you get off the coach and going into the stadium. Everywhere you go you have that sort of rivalry and the home fans support their team.
The Manchester United players are used to that and I don’t think that it will bother them.
It’s a close one to call and could go either way.
