Manchester United are not out to avenge last season's defeats to Liverpool when they take on their bitter rivals on Sunday, according to captain Gary Neville.
The Old Trafford club retained their Premier League crown last season despite losing both of the games against their traditional rivals.
They had the last laugh despite losing 2-1 at Anfield and 4-1 at Old Trafford after winning the title by a four-point margin.
Neville does not want to lose at Anfield on Sunday, but has admitted he would settle for a repeat of last season's outcome in the title race.
"Liverpool may have beaten us twice in the league last season, but I wouldn't say we're looking for revenge," said Neville.
"When the top teams play against each other it seems to go through cycles and teams have good results and bad results.
"We know anything can happen in these kind of games, so the main thing is not losing.
"The most important thing at the end of the season is winning the league and we're delighted that we won it last season.
"I suppose we'd rather lose both games again and win the league than beat Liverpool and not win the title."
