Marcos Rojo hails Manchester United supporters
The Manchester United defender sat among Red Devils supporters in the away sections at last season's 1-0 victory at Liverpool and the 1-1 draw at Stoke last month.
Those Premier League games saw Wayne Rooney score a 78th-minute winner at Anfield and a stoppage-time equaliser at the Bet365 Stadium.
And Rojo feels the fans create an atmosphere that drives them on and makes the opposition "appear to shrink a little", particularly late on in games.
Manchester United fans lifted Wayne Rooney to late equaliser at Stoke
The 26-year-old told MUTV: "When the team needs to go all out for the win in the last few minutes of a game, or we need to grab a late goal, it's great for us to feel that support and you can sense that the opponents feel it too.
"When the fans really get going and are passionately driving us forward and cheering at full blast, you get the feeling that, as we put the pressure on, the other team just appear to shrink a little in the face of all this.
"And you can tell that's happening when you're out there playing.

"I had the chance to be in the crowd at Liverpool and at Stoke and I really got to feel for myself just what the United supporters live through every week.
"It was really great to be in there and hear the passion they put into every song they sing and how they chant the players' names.
"I had the opportunity to be right in among the fans at the ground to experience and see things for myself from a different angle, if you like, and it was a really cool experience."
