Liverpool still our biggest rivals – Man Utd’s Scholes

Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes is again looking forward to taking on arch enemies Liverpool this weekend.

Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes is again looking forward to taking on arch enemies Liverpool this weekend.

The 38-year old midfielder insists he loves playing against the Anfield outfit and suggests the rivalry between the two clubs is much bigger than the newfound title competitiveness between United and neighbours Manchester City.

"Whether Manchester City have overtaken Liverpool now [as United's biggest rivals], I don't know; it'll probably take years for City to create what Liverpool have done," Scholes told Inside United.

"Liverpool historically are our biggest rivals, they're always the biggest games and the best atmospheres. But I'm sure City will run them close.

"I think it was the top one [fixture] for quite some while. Liverpool probably haven't done as well as they'd have liked over the last few years and they'd probably admit that. But it's definitely still right up there – it'll always be right up there."
