Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has said that he hopes to see Manchester United struggle now that Sir Alex Ferguson has been replaced by David Moyes, the Daily Mail reports.

United have dominated the landscape of English football under Ferguson’s guidance since the Premier League’s inception in 1992, however, since his decision to retire last month, there is a growing feeling that their power and dominance may be undermined following the arrival of David Moyes from Everton.

And Gerrard, though he can understand the club’s selection, can’t help but hope that the club struggle now.

“They have replaced a world-class manager with another, who has done a fantastic job at Everton,’ Gerrard said. ‘So I think David will continue to do a good job there,” Gerrard said.

“It’s new for Manchester United. From a biased point of view, let’s hope they have a wobble.

“I think they have too many good players to fall out of the title race,” he added. “They have world-class players and I expect them to fight for the league again.

“There’s no getting away from it, the competition in the Premier League is going to get stronger and stronger.

“Manchester City are going to add to their squad, Jose Mourinho is back at Chelsea and we are going to make numerous signings.

“Tottenham and Arsenal are going to come back again. I think we are in for a very interesting Premier League campaign.”
