David Moyes was announced as Alex Ferguson's successor in May and will officially start his new job on Monday.

And speaking to Sky Sports News, Gerrard says that all eyes will be on the new man.

Gerrard said: "They have replaced a world-class manager with another who has done a fantastic job at Everton, 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."

Liverpool start their campaign with a home game against Stoke City while United travel to Wales to play Swansea City.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.
