Out of all of the races near the top, bottom and middle of the Premier League this season, perhaps the most ignored battle is the one between England’s two most successful clubs: Liverpool and Manchester United.
If Man United can win the Premier League title this season, the Red Devils will equal the most number of championship titles held by an English club: the 18 achieved by Liverpool. The championship titles include the number of Premier League and First Division titles won.
You can imagine how determined Sir Alex Ferguson is to make Manchester United the most successful club in English football history.
Liverpool will hope to open up an eight point gap between the Reds and the Red Devils tonight when they play West Ham United at Anfield. A win or a draw will move Liverpool into first place and in a commanding position to hold on to the first place spot between now and the end of the year.
What do you think? Can Liverpool extend the number of title wins and push further ahead of United? Or will Sir Alex Ferguson surpass Liverpool’s record and become the most successful team in English football?
Remember that United have three European titles under their belt, while Liverpool have five (counting Champions League and European Cup trophies). Fergie will be trying to equal or surpass that record, too, I’m sure.
