Rory McIlroy has never hidden his love for soccer. This great golfer has been a big fan of Manchester United since he was a boy. Recently, there were rumors that the Northern Irishman could invest huge money in the club from Old Trafford. However, it is still unknown whether that will happen. The great golfer used his free time to watch the ongoing match between Liverpool and Manchester United tonight. Although many are not optimistic that Manchester United can achieve victory, McIlroy has shown how much he believes in his team this time as well. The Northern Irishman believes that it is necessary to always have faith, even when things are not going very well. Manchester United haven't been playing great this season, but Rory still thinks they can fix things.

"I think so. You're just looking for a spark, right? You're just looking for something to get the team going.

Whether it happens today or maybe somewhere down the line, you need to have hope. You need to have hope and feel like you can turn things around. Tyrrell and I have been through that in golf, and anyone who's played sport at a high level [knows] you go through some of these dips in confidence. All you need is one little spark to get you going again, so hopefully that's today for United."- Rory McIlory told two of Sky Sports' leading pundits: Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville.

Tyrrell Hatton reacts

Tyrrell Hatton, a golfer, is present at tonight's match. Being a fan of Liverpool, he holds a positive outlook, believing that his team has the potential to secure a win and claim the top position.

"I think we've got good reason to feel confident - certainly a lot more confident than these guys! I'm hoping for a big win this afternoon."
