Gary Neville is happy with our performance yesterday against CSKA Moscow but is already looking forward to Anfield.
“I think we were a constant threat,” said Neville. “In the first half Fabio and Nani down the left were very difficult to play for them. And then in the second half Antonio started to get a lot of the ball and we were a constant threat behind them on the wings, and I think we had the better chances and most of the play as well. That’s two professional performances away from home. I think the Wolfsburg game at home was difficult but we are in a real good position now and we’ve just got to finish the job against Moscow in a couple of weeks’ time.”
I’ve just been waiting to get this CSKA game out of the way so we can focus on what really matters, our trip to Anfield! Seems as though our captain is looking forward to it too.
“Well it’s a great fixture always – a passionate fixture,” he added. “But a game that can always go either way and we just hope to be at the top of our game because you have to be in that one. The fact Liverpool lost and we won in Moscow will mean nothing come Sunday lunchtime. They’re at home in front of their fans. It’s always difficult at Anfield. We have to make sure we’re on top of our game. It’s far too early to talk about knocking Liverpool out of the title race, we’re only nine or ten games into the season. Any team in the top four is capable of winning six or seven games on the trot and getting back into it. We just need to think about our performance and what we do.”
