JAMIE CARRAGHER is looking forward to the first Liverpool – Manchester United derby at the newly-expanded Anfield.
The old rivals meet on Merseyside next Monday night.
And Jose Mourinho’s team will be out to record their third successive away win against the Reds.
The showdown is the first clash between the two sides since the capacity at Liverpool’s home ground was increased to 54,074 this year.
And Carragher is expecting there to be an electric atmosphere as the teams battle it out on the pitch.
“It feels like in the Premier League every game is a big game now,” he said.
“This [Liverpool versus United] is extra special, under the lights at Anfield, and there have been some great games there, you think of the 3-3 game all that time ago.
“It will be a great atmosphere, and I think Liverpool will go in confident with the way they’re playing.”
However, he suggests there may be a few issues for Jurgen Klopp to work through in the wake of the World Cup qualifying fixtures break.
“[But] it’s always difficult on the back of international games – who you bring back, what time they come back, did anyone pick up any injuries? So that will have bearing too,” he added.
