Former Liverpool player, Robbie Fowler says that Manchester United has lost their fear factor under the guidance of David Moyes and after facing defeats at their home stadium of Old Trafford against Everton, Newcastle United, Tottenham and West Bromwich, it should be no problem for his former club Liverpool to win.

Liverpool has to travel to Old Trafford in order to face off against Manchester United on March 16 but Robbie Fowler is confident that Liverpool will come out as the victorious side.

“A few teams have gone to Old Trafford and got results this season. It has lost that fear factor. United had it for a number of years. Teams went there knowing they would be on the back foot and almost expecting to lose. That’s not happening anymore. Now teams are actually pushing on looking to win there rather than sitting back, hoping to nick a point.” Fowler said.

The last time that Liverpool managed to claim a victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford was back in 2009 however Fowler insisted in saying that times have changed and this time around Liverpool should be the favorites on winning.

“It’s always a massive game but the difference this time is that Liverpool must be favorites. I can’t remember the last time a Liverpool team went to Old Trafford in that position. On paper it’s a game Liverpool should win. They’re in great form and I am quietly confident Liverpool can get a big result there’’.

“People talk about how far United have dropped but I also look at it from the other side, how far Liverpool have come’’. Fowler added

The outcome of Manchester United vs Liverpool will be crucial for both teams as the Premier League is nearing the finish line and any amount of points that either club is able to secure could be the difference between getting a Champions League spot or not.


The Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, was awarded with the man of the match award during his club’s match against Fulham as the English midfielder managed to score once and provided an assist for his teammate which helped Liverpool on securing the late victory for his team.

When the match concluded, Brendan Rodgers went on praising the performance of Gerrard and even considered him to be ‘’peerless’’.

“Steven is peerless in many aspects of football. His performance again was brilliant is pass for the first goal, that penetration he has that he’s shown all his life and then the composure at the end. It’s no coincidence, he studies the goalkeepers and what side they dive. The professionalism he’s showing at this stage of his career is still there’’.

“There’s no more ideal person than Steven Gerrard when you have a penalty in the last couple of minutes in games, he stuck it away brilliantly.” Rodgers said.

When Rodgers was asked if he is concerned about the recent dry run of goals that Luis Suarez is going through, the tactician stated that the Uruguayan forward remains being world-class and even though he hasn’t been scoring like some months ago, he still is influencing the match in other areas.

“Luis is a world-class player, but I’m building something here that isn’t reliant upon one player. Other players have scored goals when Luis wasn’t in the team, or Daniel wasn’t in the team. You don’t score the number of goals we do when you’re reliant upon one player’’. Rodgers added.

Gerrard recently labeled his team as ‘’Dark Horses’’ considering all the other teams fighting for the top spot of the Premier League that have enjoyed busy transfer windows while Liverpool on the other hand did not have a single player either leaving or joining the club on any permanent deals.
