    He first said "heritage", and then asked for the verb from the assembled press, which was established as "inherit". So it makes sense that he meant to say inheritance, especially when you watch the press conference. I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese and know that our word "heritage" splits as herencia/patrimonio in Spanish depending on the context. I think that tripped him up.

    I feel very sure that's what happened.

    They do look stronger than last season, united will be there biggest test to date, although they have done well at home to united in recent meetings.
    They've been on a winless run from last April, so i don't think it's just the distraction of playing twice a week, if anything they should have an edge on teams, fitness wise and having played more games. Still they will raise their game, it being a derby of sorts.
    They did well against city because they had real a go, fair play and why sit back and take a hiding. I can see them rattling united if they do the same.

    I don't think that makes any difference at all.

    The whole press conference (and I use that term in its loosest possible sense as he hardly let anyone actually ask a question) consisted of Jose using United's past record in the competition to justify the abysmal present.

    It was pathetic, as was the team's performance.

    Yes okay. I mean I'm a Liverpool fan. I'm not sticking up for Jose - I was just adding a caveat.

    The way they are playing they could easily end up with one point; Watford are flying and Wolves were impressive against Everton, unlucky against Leicester (and looked better than United did in beating the same opposition) and even more impressive against City. I'd have thought that anyone playing United in the next month is going to have a go just because they look so vulnerable.
