Fergie wary of Reds strength

Manchester United (4/5 Premier League outright) boss Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted his side face a tough challenge when they make the short trip to Merseyside to take on rivals Liverpool.

The Red Devils currently hold an unbeaten record in the Premier League after their first seven games but they now face their biggest test of the campaign so far against Kenny Dalglish‘s side on October 15.

Ferguson has not come away from Anfield with a win in the league since 2007, as the Reds have raised their game against United, who last season became the most successful club domestically by winning their 19th league title.

The experienced Scottish manager is looking forward to the challenge after the international break this weekend but has admitted it will be another tough test for his players against a Liverpool (33/1 Premier League outright) squad which has been strengthened over the summer transfer window.

“We have been poor there of late,” Ferguson said. “On a couple of occasions we have been out-fought by them, which is disappointing.

“The atmosphere plays a part. Every time we go there it is as if it’s the biggest game of the century.”
