Liverpool vs Manchester United. The biggest game in English football, and one of the biggest games in both European and world football.
It makes the heart beat a little faster, the anticipation tingle a little stronger, and nerves jangle a little louder.
One man who knows a thing or two about the occasion is Reds legend, Jamie Carragher. We’re not sure exactly how many derbies he played in, but given he played for us for almost 20 years, it’s fair to say it was an awful lot.
And the great man has been offering his thoughts on the next edition of the game. It’s due to be played next Monday night under the Anfield lights.
Carra thinks the floodlights will add something a little bit special. He’s right, of course. The game against United in last season’s Europa League was excellent – the atmosphere generated by both sets of fans was brilliant.
“It feels like in the Premier League every game is a big game now,” he said (official site).
“This is extra special, under the lights at Anfield, and there have been some great games there, you think of the 3-3 game all that time ago. It will be a great atmosphere, and I think Liverpool will go in confident with the way they’re playing.
“But it’s always difficult on the back of international games – who you bring back, what time they come back, did anyone pick up any injuries? So that will have bearing too.”
