Sir Alex Ferguson arrived at Anfield early this afternoon ahead of Manchester United’s game against Liverpool.
Having faced Liverpool 63 times as United manager, winning 30 of them, Sir Alex knows all about playing Liverpool and what it means to fans and players.
Today is Louis van Gaal‘s first ever game at Anfield as United boss but having beat Liverpool 3-0 at Old Trafford, he has already enjoyed the feeling of beating the scousers.
However, there’s so much more riding on this afternoon’s game. United currently sit two points above Liverpool in the league and can open up a five point gap with a win today but equally so the scousers have a chance to leapfrog van Gaal’s side into fourth position.
If that happens, Champions League qualification then goes out of United’s hands because they will be relying on Liverpool dropping points and that’s a situation van Gaal will be very keen to avoid.
Come on United, do it for Fergie!
