done their bit and we’ve done our bit, so let the game go on.
"It's an important game for both clubs, so hopefully we can just concentrate now on it being a good football match and hopefully we can put on our best performance."
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will also be seeking a strong showing from his side, who have failed to win any of their four league games at the start of his tenure.
Sir Alex defended his counterpart, saying: "He’s a young manager and any young manager needs time. But in the modern world you don't get a lot of time.
"Look at [André] Villas-Boas at Chelsea last season, a young man who lasted about seven months. We’re in an age where patience is not a realistic thing, it’s just not there.
"The only route for any manager is success. It’s a results industry so winning matches is important. It’s a different game from when I started. There was less pressure. The world has changed, the press has changed…but I always still felt I needed to win games.
"That's what you’re in it for – to win games. It doesn’t matter whether you’re managing Port Vale or Liverpool or Manchester, you have to get results nowadays."
