Paul Scholes feels Liverpool are among Manchester United's biggest rivals despite the Merseysiders struggle to compete for the Premier League title in recent years.

Asked where Liverpool currently feature among the Red Devils' biggest rivalries, Scholes told Inside United: "I think it was the top one 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."

Scholes has no doubt Liverpool "historically are our biggest rivals".

He said: "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.

"But 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."
