Neville believes his former team will make it a Manchester one-two at the end of the season, suggesting that the clash with the Reds Saturday week's could be pivotal to holding off the challenge of Juergen Klopp's men.
The prize of staying in the Premier League and the bonuses managers get when they achieve that relatively modest "success" is now damaging the game as most teams are simply trying not to lose rather than a win.

"But I think we have enough quality. we showed it against Barcelona".
It's a pretty ballsy prediction we must say, considering that Antonio Conte's Chelsea - who now sit in fifth - have been in the worst form of any of the top six in 2018, and travel to the Etihad to face Guardiola's superb City side this weekend.
"After that it might come down to who has the nerve and who has the deepest squad".
Prior to facing United at Old Trafford, Liverpool must get through a home game against Newcastle, which will see Rafa Benitez return to Anfield as an opposing manager, and the home return leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie against Porto.
