Manchester United defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic described yesterday’s Liverpool win as “very important,” but at the same time labeled Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League clash as “maybe the most important game of the season.” The two United versus Liverpool clashes are always “circle the date” occasions, as it’s the biggest and best rivalry in English football.

United beat the Reds 2-1 yesterday to extend their unbeaten run over their arch-rivals to eight. United haven’t lost to Liverpool since March of 2014. Now, with a very quick turnaround, United turn their attention from domestic to foreign affairs. United have seen their bitter rivals Liverpool advance to the Champions League quarterfinals, and they’re now looking to join them.

All in all, England has broken records and established new standards for excellence in this season’s Champions League.

United obviously do not want to be left out of that party.

“Very important for our confidence to win this sort of game,” Nemanja Matic said after the victory over Liverpool.

“We won against Chelsea and of course (on Saturday), so confidence will be on a high level, for sure. We have to see what we did well to continue like this. We have to know where we made mistakes to improve.

“The next game is very important for us, maybe the most important game of the season. We have to beat Sevilla to go through, so we give our best.”

United definitely need goals Tuesday night, as they played Sevilla to an extremely dull goalless draw on their trip to Spain.

The match was so tedious it conjured up memories of the Louis van Gaal era. United cannot afford to perform like that again. On another note, Matic’s midfield mate, Ander Herrera, made the controversial remark that he would be willing to trade a Man City Premier League title for a Champions League trophy.
