Liverpool midfielder James Milner has revealed he will be supporting Manchester United when they host Manchester City in an English Premier League match on Wednesday.
Liverpool are on top of the table on 88 points, two ahead of City on 86, but the Cityzens can overtake them if they get a result at United.
“I don’t watch them, to be honest. It’s a bit of a waste of energy, isn’t it, willing the ball into the goal and things like that. I can’t do anything about it,” he said.
“Maybe I’ll put my phone away for a couple of hours and check it after. Maybe I’ll go and grab some food or whatever.
“There are three games left. United will be a challenge, but it’s the old cliché – any game is tough in the Premier League no matter who you play.
“To try and win a league title is not easy, whoever you play. Trust me, I know. Remember QPR [in 2012]? To beat anyone is tough when it is all on the line.
“We’ve still got some tough games ourselves, and we have to win those and keep the pressure up.”
Liverpool will next host Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday, with only three matches remaining to the end of the campaign
