Trent Alexander-Arnold told the official club site that, like most Liverpool supporters, he will be backing Manchester United to beat City at Old Trafford this evening.
The young Scouser has been one of the most important players for Jurgen Klopp this season. As a childhood Liverpool fan, he is desperate to win the title even if it means supporting United for an evening.
Alexander-Arnold continued: “It’s rare that you get these seasons. We’ve worked really hard with the foundations, kept quite a lot of clean sheets.
“It’s important for us to keep up the momentum. It’s not about how many points we’ve got now, it’s about how many we can end up with and put the pressure back on City.
“Hopefully United will do us a favour.”
If Manchester City and Liverpool both win their remaining games, it won’t be the Reds that win the Premier League as the reigning champions have a game more to play.
In order for the Anfield outfit side to be victorious in the league for the first time in 29 years, they need Pep Guardiola’s side to put a foot wrong.
The reason this is such a bleak proposition is that City have not dropped points in the Premier League for almost three months – a span stretching 10 games.
Liverpool fans are on edge as tonight’s kickoff in the Manchester Derby draws closer.
United are in terrible form, winning just two of their last five Premier League games and losing the other three.
Expecting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to get a result against City is overly optimistic.
Liverpool have already beaten their total points tally from the 2013/14 season by four points and could end on 97.
The fact that it could still see the Reds finish in second place is a little disheartening.
