Gary Neville says that he’s “already thinking” about Manchester United facing Liverpool after their recent defeat.
Man United suffered a 2-1 defeat to Brighton in their first Premier League match of the season on Sunday. This came a day after the Reds were held to a 2-2 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Next up for Liverpool is a home clash against Crystal Palace at Anfield on Monday 15, before facing Man United at Old Trafford a week later. For the Red Devils, they take on Brentford before welcoming Liverpool to their home stadium.
Neville, speaking hours after Man United’s loss to Brighton, has spoken about why he is “dreading” their match against Brentford. He went on to say that he is already thinking about the fixture against Liverpool too, which is two weeks away.
“I am already dreading the train down to Brentford next Saturday and I’m already thinking about Liverpool coming to Old Trafford two weeks on Monday,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“These are the most exciting times, start of the season. I’m already thinking deep breath, hang in there, hope they get a result against Brentford and then going into Liverpool.
“We know what these games have done in the last few years, they’ve been graveyard matches. It becomes a difficult moment for the players, the fans, it's not nice.”
