Liverpool welcome the Red Devils to Anfield at the weekend, in a crucial match for both sides in the race to finish in the UEFA Champions League places.

United have looked unconvincing for the large parts of the season, but were able to produce arguably their best performance of the campaign in the 3-0 win against Tottenham last Sunday to give them a much needed boost ahead of a tough set of fixtures.

Despite games against Chelsea and Manchester City looming on the horizon, McGrath, who won the FA Cup with United in 1985, is confident that Louis van Gaal’s side will be able to fend off the challenge from their fierce rivals:

“Liverpool are the only team who can do a bit of damage to Manchester United. I don’t see it happening now though.” he told TalkSport (via Mail Sport)

“United are clicking into gear at the right time and are relaxed in the way they’re playing their football.” he added.
