Liverpool striker relishing prospect of first taste of Man United rivalry

Liverpool striker Danny Ings has admitted that he cannot wait for his first game against Manchester United since completing his summer move to the Red Devils’ bitter rivals, the Daily Express report.

Brendan Rodgers’ men will travel to Old Trafford for their first game following the international break, and the former Burnley man has tipped the Reds to seriously test Louis van Gaal’s side (via Express).

“These are games you look forward to the most and be a part of because it does go down in history,” he explained.

“Everybody here will show pride and I’m sure we will go out there and put on real performance for the fans and the club,” he added.

Although both sides have experienced some challenging years in the very recent past, they have both made promising starts to the new campaign.

Interestingly, they both began the season with consecutive 1-0 wins before following goalless draws with their first defeats of the season. That has left both sides on seven points, and with plenty of reasons to be positive after the first four games of the term.

While United’s defeat to Swansea left van Gaal with plenty of questions to answer, it was the manner of Liverpool’s loss to West Ham – which was also Ings’ first appearance for the club – that suggested that it is the Old Trafford outfit that are in a better position than their next opponents.

The humbling loss to Slaven Bilic’s men quashed a lot of the optimism that had developed after an encouraging summer on Merseyside, but a victory against their old foes would restore the good feeling.
