Liverpool midfielder James Milner nominated for Champions League award

Liverpool midfielder James Milner nominated for Champions League award

Liverpool FC now turn their attentions towards preparing for their crunch Premier League showdown with Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend.

On Monday at Crystal Palace, Mourinho's side was disjointed and shapeless as they fell 2-0 down to the relegation-threatened Londoners, only to rally and get the three points thanks to a last-minute strike from midfielder Nemanja Matic.

"I never had a time schedule in my mind where I thought "we have to be there and then have to be there".

"Of course I have to think about my footballing future", Can is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. "We feel we have played well against the top English clubs and shown we can beat them".

United pulled one back nearly immediately through Eddie Lewis before Taylor's goal seven minutes from fulltime sparked outrage from Liverpool fans in the Kop.

Liverpool now prepare for the biggest game of the season, facing fiercest rivals Manchester United away, especially with the fact that whoever wins goes to second place.

"How all of us - players, staff and supporters - approach tonight will tell me more about where we are in our development that any Premier League game against a Manchester City, United, Spurs and so on".

Man Utd defender Smalling: Crystal Palace win like best of Fergie era
Smalling had already gone close when, in the 55th minute, he gave them the lift they needed with United's first goal. According to Press Association Sport, the FA don't believe they need to take any further action.

"I don't think it's a problem if you play well and don't score, when you are creating chances".

"I don't say the number of years but I think he obviously wants to play a bit more".

It's heady company for Milner to keep, but he could be up against any of them in the next round as the Reds await their quarter-final fate.

And Mourinho, speaking soon after the 3-2 win over Palace, encouraged the club to give tickets to those who relentlessly willed their team on in South London for the Liverpool game.

But whomever they get in next Friday's draw, which is free from geographical or group stage restrictions, will not concern them.

It remains the highest-scoring post-war match between the two clubs and will be remembered for United's controversial equaliser when Tommy Taylor bundled the ball and Liverpool goalkeeper Charlie Ashcroft into the back of the net.
