Moyes says Liverpool favourite to win

Published

Manchester United manager David Moyes
conceded that Liverpool probably start as
favourites to win what he described as “the biggest
club game in England” when they meet at Old
Trafford on Sunday.
Liverpool are second in the Premier League, seven points behind
leaders Chelsea with a game in hand, but 11 points clear of United,
who are sixth with no realistic chance of retaining their title.
Former Liverpool striker Ian Rush said earlier on Friday that
Liverpool go into the match as the clear favourites and Moyes did not
disagree.
“Their league position suggests they are ahead of us and they possibly
do come here as favourites. Liverpool are having a very good season
and we will have to do everything we possibly can to beat them.”
Liverpool, who have won their last four league matches, have not
finished above United since 2002 and although they look like doing so
this season, Moyes told reporters at his pre-match news conference
that United still had plenty to play for.
“It would be a big boost for us to win on Sunday,” he said. “I think
everyone knows the importance of Manchester United v Liverpool
games.
“I think it is the biggest game in the country. There is great history
between the two clubs going back years and I think this is the biggest
club game in the Premier League.”
Liverpool (18) and United (20) have won 38 league titles between
them.
United, who finished champions five times and runners-up three
times in Alex Ferguson’s last eight seasons in charge at Old
Trafford, have not finished outside the top three since 1991, but they
will almost certainly do so this season.
Moyes, who has had a difficult introduction since succeeding
Ferguson at the start of the season, said there was plenty of positives
to take from their recent form, having kept clean sheets in their last
three league matches.
“We are not in as strong a position as we’d like, but we are normally
very good coming into the final furlong and we have big games coming
up this month. Our motivation is to make sure we keep progressing,”
he said
I think this is mind game ……what about you?
