The Liverpool legend posted a picture of himself on his Instagram story wearing a Manchester United jersey ahead of the Derby at Old Trafford.

Pep Guardiola’s side visit their city rivals this evening and will look to take a big step towards overcoming Liverpool in the title race with a win over United.

Funnily enough, Liverpool fans will be backing United for a win over City as they need them to drop points to have any chance of being named league champions.

He accompanied the picture with a caption that read: “For one night only!”

 

While a win would be even better, all Liverpool need to have the advantage in the title race is for United to hold City to a draw in Manchester tonight.

This would remove City’s game in hand advantage and mean, with the same number of games played, they would be a point behind Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool play before City in the next round of fixtures, hosting Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday.

Hopefully, the Merseysiders will be able to use the game to further City’s misery.

Playing before the Sky Blues, regardless of tonight’s outcome, is an advantage as it compounds the pressure of needing to get a win.
