      Was more in hope in than expectation ;D
      More likely scenario would probably be a narrow victory to us or a draw.

      Just feel as though we've owed you a proper beating the last few years while the gulf between the two sides has been so far, but that hasn't really happened. Think we could have (and should have really) won the last two Anfield games by a few more goals, so I'm still holding out for the dream of this side getting a memorable win against United.

      That being said though either team rarely batters the other, even at the beginning of the previous decade when you were streets ahead of us I still remember the games being very close. I think the biggest margin of victory (that I can remember anyway) was a 4-0 to you lot at Old Trafford, and I think that was near enough 20 years ago!
      Can't remember that far back.  ;D Yeah can't see 4-0 either way as it just doesn't really happen with these two clubs. They fight right till the end because rivalry so big. It's our best chance to beat you in a while, I'm going for a slender 2-1 win.

      Talk about putting the f**king mockers on it!

      Not at all,we are the champions and have been playing two centre backs in Williams and Philips for 3 months,one played non league last season and the other in the German 2nd division and all the injuries we've had but we are still near the summit,which is massive credit to Jürgen and the boys. OGS said they lost the game at Anfield last season with the last kick of the game and that they were in the game,what a load of rubbish we battered them.It's just my view.

      The 4-0 was only because the ref sent off Sami Hyypia in the first 5 minutes after a foul on RVN and conceding a pen.

      Wasn't even a foul if I remember correctly!

      But yeah that was a rare United victory against us during that period. They really struggled against us under Houllier. Think at one point under him we'd beaten them 5 times on the bounce

      Hopefully not!

      Just be aware though that if you do end up winning today, we've already won the Premier League recently so the FA Cup game next week will be the most important... Today will have just been a practice

      Unless of course we win 😂

      They’ve been top about a week and the media would have you believe the leagues done and dusted.

      They won’t be anywhere near it come May and Fernandes will be wondering where it all went wrong.

      Going 3 1 to the reds.

      Hopefully cut out the hopeful floaty crosses and if we do get in the position low and hard anything  in the air plays into their hands , in and around their feet they are both vulnerable

      Wish I was as confident. Im hoping thiago can dominate them and supply the front 3.

      The gauntlet has been thrown down in recent weeks. Time to show we are up for the fight and are desperate to retain the title. Wish we had 55000 in there today.

      Watch out for the ref ... he will be for them today no question as well as var.

      At various stages over the past 18 months we've had Chelsea, Spurs, Leicester all being serious contenders according to the media.  Now it's United turn.  Irrespective of the result today I think over the following 21 games it will be City who remain the biggest challengers to us.

      Looking forward to the game even despite the shitty lack of fans.

      Why am I not as confident as everyone else with this one?

      Probably be for the best as whenever I have been confident for this match-up before it has led to some very frustrating games.

      Hopefully, we see a new spirit from the team and we can go and win this and put a marker down for the rest of the season!

      Thiago starting is a must!

      Wonder what the estimated global viewing figures for this one would be with a lot of the world confined to their homes at the moment? Reckon it could potentially be the most watched club fixture of all time?

      Think it usually draws between 6 - 700M. To put that into perspective, that's 4 or 5 times more viewers than your average Superbowl

      Oh yeah don't get me wrong this will be a tough game and if Matip doesn't make it then United start as favourites for me. I'm just not nervous about the game that's all. Will probably change by the time the game kicks off!

      Going to be honest, I’m bricking it.

      With how we’ve been playing, and with how they’ve been playing, plus the fact they’re almost guaranteed a penalty if we blow in their direction.... yeah, I’m not confident.

      Usually I’d be happy with a draw but I can’t bring myself to accept that with them in front of us... I need a win or I’ll be miserable until we get back in front.
