MAN UTD V LIVERPOOL
Liverpool head up the road to Manchester this Sunday to face their arch-rivals Man Utd in the Premier League.
While Utd are sitting on top of the table, Liverpool are down in 8th place at the turn of the year.
Yet, that will count for nothing once the whistle is blown for kick-off at 1:30pm.
This particular derby brings out the best and the worst in both clubs, with Alex Ferguson belittling Liverpool ahead of the game by saying:
“Brendan Rodgers is lucky to have such patient owners in John Henry and FSG.”
He seems to forget his own poor start to his Man Utd career when he managed to win an FA Cup tie against Norwich City, I think, to salvage a disastrous run of form.
In any case, it is a typical Ferguson rant ahead of this eagerly awaited match.
Liverpool go into the game in good form having won seven out of nine matches over the Christmas and New Year period and with the early acquisition of Daniel Sturridge, who scored on his debut last week in the FA Cup against Mansfield, Brendan Rodgers must be very hopeful of getting much improved results in 2013.
I am excited by the arrival of the former Chelsea Striker. It took him less than 7 minutes to score on his debut last week and he looked hungry and eager to get goals against Mansfield that day.
Lets hope for a win against that bitter man Ferguson.
3-2 to Liverpool
