However midfielder is realistic enough to know that it will most likely be a case of same again in the north west.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says that he is hoping for a “wobble” next season from Premier League champions Manchester United under new head coach David Moyes, reports the Daily Star.
Former Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson shocked the world of football at the end of the previous campaign by bringing down the curtain on his trophy-laden Old Trafford reign after more than 26 years in charge in the north west.
And with the 20-time top-flight champions set to be under new leadership next season, the England international senses that there could be the possibility of a period of instability at United under the former Everton boss.
“They have replaced a world-class manager with another who has done a fantastic job at Everton,” Gerrard said. “So, I think David will continue to do a good job there.
“It is new for Manchester United. From a biased point of view, let’s hope they have a wobble, but I think they have too many good players to fall out of the title race.
“They have world-class players and I expect them to fight for the league again.”
Moyes was at Goodison Park for 11 highly successful years, during which time the Glaswegian oversaw a whopping 518 matches in charge of the Toffees, winning 218 of those games to give him an overall win percentage of 42, although there remain some question marks about his appointment by United with the Scot having never won a trophy in his managerial career to date.
