Evans: You Never Forget Playing In United-Liverpool Games

Ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Anfield on Sunday, Jonny Evans has talked up the rivalry between the two club.

“The history of the two clubs makes it one of the biggest games in English football,” said Evans. “The distance thing, the Merseyside-Manchester rivalry and all the history that goes with it means it will be no different on Sunday. You can go through tactics and talk about how many points the teams have this season but it all goes out of the window when it comes to a Manchester United-Liverpool game. There is goodness knows how many years of rivalry to take into account as well. We haven’t had great results away at Liverpool in the last couple of years so it’s up to us to put that right. It’s always a big occasion but one every Manchester United player relishes. It’s something you never forget with the atmosphere and the stick you get as well. It’s all part of it. We enjoy that side of it and it’s going to be a really big game.”

    RVP will be the difference. Evra needs to bring his A game.

  2. Drogahnus says:

    Evra definitely needs to step up, not just for this game, but in general.

  3. ak47 says:

    Will Liverpool fans get criticised if they boo Evra?

  4. andromeda says:

    De Gea, Rafael, Evra, Vidic, Rio, Carrick, Fletcher, Cleverly, Valencia, Kagawa, 4-2-3-1 formation

    The above line up should be the winner….any thought?

    @andromeda Giggs on for Fletch and it’s probably right. It’s insane to start Fletch against Pool after so long out, and looking at this wednesday it showed he’s been out. He’ll be back but not tomorrow.

    andromeda.. i’d be VERY surprised if that is. back 5 yes, but carrick cleverley in the middle, with valencia & nani on the wings with kagawa behind RvP. anderson may start in place of kagawa, & line up next to carrick with cleverley in front.. dont have many options on the wings atm so id expect Nani to start, frustrating though he was in midweek

  7. RedAllTheWay says:

    actauuly giggs on the left in place for nani..

    I’ll be very surprised if NinjaEvra starts – SAF has gone out of his way to try and cool things so why would he wave a red rag at the Kop ? Buttner was very good against Wigan but I’d imagine that this might be a match when Jonny Evans gets in at left back – just a hunch, mind you.

    Fletcher won’t be playing – and might not even be on the bench. So, perhaps Anderson alongside YoungTom and ahead of Michael Carrick.

    That leaves an attacking three – and your guess is as good (or bad) as mine. I’d go with Chicharito up-front with KagawaBunga and RVP playing off him although Nani’s good moments in mid-week might recommend him in place of Chicharito and then it would be RVP up-front with a “2″ of KagawaBunga and Nani.

    In my fantasy world, that would be a 4-3-2-1 – blast-off !

    Fuck hed better not be playing tommorrw
