Steven Gerrard admits that he would be happy if Manchester United experience a "wobble" following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that he hopes that Manchester United experience a "wobble" next season.

The Premier League champions will begin the 2013-14 campaign under new manager David Moyes, who moved from Everton following Sir Alex Ferguson's decision to step down after 26 years at Old Trafford.

While Liverpool's rivalry with United has prompted Gerrard to hope for a slip-up, the England captain believes that the Red Devils will still be challenging for the league title.

"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," Gerrard told Sky Sports News.

"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 will begin their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Stoke City.
