Mind games have already began ahead of the big clash tomorrow. Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand ruled out Liverpool from the list of title contenders this season. Ferdinand believes the premier title will be a three horse race between Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.
In his interview to MUTV, Ferdinand said,
“It is too early to say whether they (Liverpool) will challenge the top four,”
“I don’t think they would have been in anyone’s reckoning before the season began.”
“But they have started the season very well and are looking to put themselves in a good position after those first three games.”
“I still see it being between Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal going for that fourth spot.”
Ferdinand consider Liverpool stars Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho as the main threats to United’s defence along with their captain Gerrard.
Ferdinand also showed his excitement about the atmosphere in anfield which he expects to be nothing less than electrifying tomorrow.
“You still get a different feeling when it is Liverpool,”
“I think it is the history between the clubs, the success Liverpool had and the success we have had in recent years.”
