Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has turned up the heat ahead of today's clash at Manchester United.

Carragher is likely to be on the bench today at Old Trafford.

"I have great respect for Sir Alex Ferguson, Giggs, Scholes - the trophies they've won. But I don't like seeing them win and I was glad that Man City won the league last year rather than Manchester United," he told the Telegraph.

"You look at what United have achieved and it's fantastic and they have been the club over the last 15-20 years as Liverpool were before. And that's what we're been trying to get back to."
