Manchester United take on Liverpool this weekend in a huge Premier League encounter.
This fixture is by far and away the greatest in English football, though the two clubs have been trending in different directions recently… That said, United have been presented with a huge opportunity to prove their worth.
Everything is pointing in the direction of a Liverpool victory, though it’s tough to back against United, particularly with the Old Trafford crowd roaring them on.
Although the Theatre of Dreams gets itself up for these big games, that hasn’t stopped Gary Neville claiming that Anfield’s atmosphere is more ‘fiery and emotional’. Simply put, that’s a polite way of saying that he feels it’s better upon Merseyside…
I always think that when you look at the Liverpool vs United game, the game at Liverpool is always much more fiery and emotional than a game at Old Trafford,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“Atmosphere, emotion, feeling; it took me years to get used to playing at Anfield. Years.”
While Old Trafford is sometimes more like Old Temple, the United supporters certainly get themselves up for big games against rivals. I can bet that Sunday will be no different, too.
That’s not to say that Anfield isn’t an intimidating away ground to visit, it certainly is. I just feel as though the Theatre of Dreams can hold it’s own in the situations where it matters most.
Anyway, United have a chance to silence some critics on Sunday. What better way to do it than beating our sworn enemy and ending their long winning streak? Mountains are there to be climbed, right?
