Michael Carrick believes Liverpool have reasons to be worried as United will close the seven-point gap on them soon. The Champions have two games in hand and are seven points behind while having infinitely more experience of how to win titles than the sweet little neighbours at the other end of the East Lancs Road.
'If I was in their shoes I would want to be as far ahead as I possibly could be,' said Carrick.
'At this stage of the season we could have been a lot further behind than we are when you consider all the away games, especially after Champions League matches, and the fact our two games in hand are both at home.'
And that's why I don't get why Fergie was all pissed about being handicapped by the fixture list. I mean, I'm quite happy that we've got past our most difficult fixtures and we'll have a friendlier fixture list at the business end of the season.
With Chelsea visiting Old Trafford on Sunday, Carrick was musing about breaking their stranglehold on the league title, back in 2006/07.
'It was tough to break Chelsea's hold on the league. That first Premier League trophy probably surprised a few people because they expected Chelsea to go on and win it again.
'But we started the season unbelievably well and really put the pressure on from the start.
'It was important to get ahead because Chelsea were very rarely slipping up. But our flying start meant they were chasing, which they had not done for a few years. That gave everyone here the belief we could win it again.'
