Gary Neville poses question about Liverpool ahead of Man United clash
Gary Neville says he is intrigued to see how Liverpool approach their crunch Premier League clash with Manchester United on Sunday
Gary Neville admits that he cannot wait to see how Liverpool approach their showdown with Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Reds head into the game looking to get their Premier League title bid back on track after the disappointment of their 2-2 draw with Sunderland last time out.
Liverpool are currently five points ahead of Manchester United but know that a win for the Red Devils would cut the gap to their bitter rivals down to just two points.
The two sides played out a disappointing goalless draw when they last met at Anfield last year.
However, former Manchester United defender Neville is expecting a different encounter when the Reds travel to Old Trafford this weekend.
Speaking to Sky Sports, ex-Manchester United star Neville said: “The fascinating thing about this game is the mentality. What is the mentality of Liverpool?
“Will they go into this game thinking they don’t want to lose and let United cut the gap to two points or are they thinking they can move eight points clear and put United to bed? I’m sure the attitude of the manager will be to go eight points clear, but will his team be able to go out at Old Trafford and believe what their manager believes?
“That’s a big test for them. With the tiredness and the disruption to their training over the last couple of weeks, can they get it out of their minds and put a big gap between themselves and United?”
Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League and without a trophy last season following Jurgen Klopp’s appointment back in October 2015.
