Pep Guardiola told his pre-match press conference that going to Old Trafford is no longer scary for opposition sides and Liverpool fans have reacted to this.

The Manchester Derby will be held at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening and Guardiola is playing with fire with comments he made ahead of kickoff.

He said: “I don’t make theories about what happened in the past for what is going to happen in the future. Every game is completely different.

“The reason why is the fact this club in the last decade grew a lot and it is not scary to go there.”

Last season, a brace from Paul Pogba ruined Manchester City’s title party at the Etihad and Liverpool fans are desperate to see the Frenchman come up with a similar result this time at Old Trafford.

With Guardiola’s comments about the Red Devils’ home ground and their need to get a result to secure Champions League qualification, Liverpool fans are hopeful that their arch nemesis can do them a favour.

Here is what fans have said on Twitter:

Meanwhile, there will be a portion of the United fan base that will be keen to see their own side fail so that Liverpool aren’t allowed to go on and win the Premier League.
