Fowler backing Liverpool to win at Man Utd

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is convinced they can win at Manchester United this weekend.

Fowler believes Old Trafford is the perfect place for Liverpool to rediscover themselves...and silence the chatter that has surrounded their manager.

"I know they've been written off, and they'll say themselves it hasn't been good enough so far this season - there's no escaping from that," he told the Mirror. "I'm amazed though that people have dismissed them already.

"United know more than anyone what Liverpool can do at Old Trafford - they've won there often enough in the last decade or so, and last season was one of the best performances in the Premier League. They could have won six or seven!

"Look, it's the biggest cliché, but form goes out of the window in these games anyway. So saying they're a pub team is missing the point. Liverpool will go there hurt by what's gone on so far, and they'll want to put it right.

"There's no better place to do that, because if you can get a result - and it doesn't matter how you do it - then it sets you up."
