Sir Alex Ferguson admits he is looking forward to locking horns with old adversaries when his Manchester United side travel to Anfield to face Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils are due on Merseyside for what has always been an eagerly-anticipated clash between England's two most successful clubs, and this weekend will be no different, as the arch-rivals prepare to do battle with more than just pride at stake.

"I always consider this to be the game of the season in English football," said Ferguson. "Games with Liverpool are always immensely emotive matches.

"There are two great histories and it could be nothing else but a great game, an intense match anyway."


Ferguson accepts that emotions will inevitably be running high when United make the short journey to their North West neighbours, as the reigning champions look to extend their unbeaten start to the 2011-12 campaign.

"Sometimes they have been fantastic games, sometimes they have been disappointing, but they are always interesting," he continued. "It's something to look forward to.

"It's a massive game, it's an important game and all the players are looking forward to it."
