Former Valencia player Jose Enrique thinks Manchester United versus Liverpool match is “still the biggest game” of the Premier League season.
After the eight league games, Manchester United are remaining on the 12th place, while Liverpool are 15 points ahead of the Red Devils, leading the league table.
Now the two giants will be on action on Sunday evening.
Despite the gap between the two teams, Enrique, who played for Liverpool from 2011 to 2016, is sure nothing can compare to the clash between the two most successful English teams.
He told Sky Sports News: "It is and it still is [the biggest game of the season] even if United is not doing as well now. For the players, for the fans, it is still the biggest game. Even Liverpool's rivalry with City, even with the way they are doing [pales in comparison]. The rivalry between United and Liverpool is different. The preparation is the same. The only thing when you play this game is in your mind you are more nervous than other games - that is obvious. It's another game, it's [potentially] three points more, but for the fans and the players, it means more. So if you win it, you have a good night after the game!"
