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.
