Manchester United legend Gary Neville has confessed he didn’t expect Manchester United to be three points clear of a very good Liverpool side in January.
Speaking on Sky Sports about the Turf Moor clash, Gary Neville said: “Manchester United find themselves with something building, the spirit is growing as you could see with the way they celebrated with each other, there’s a resilience built off some performances.
“You get confidence from that and now United are starting to play better. The players they have who are really top quality are starting to show those moments in a more consistent fashion. It’s a little bit more exciting and l am going to enjoy these next three or four days!
“It was Chelsea four weeks ago and Man Utd looked dead, but it is all turning around again. But it shouldn’t stop United fans get carried away in the next few days. Why shouldn’t they? To be top of the league, three points clear of a really good Liverpool side, in January, isn’t expected.”
