Moyes Concedes Liverpool’re Favourites

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 Vs Liverpool games.
“I think it is the biggest game in the country. There is great history between the two clubs going back in the 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.
