Steven Gerrard admits he would celebrate if he claimed a handball winner at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The skipper was asked the question following Luis Suarez's goal against Mansfield last weekend.
The Uruguayan inadvertently handled the ball in the build up, and Gerrard was asked what he would do if a similar situation arose against our Manchester rivals.
"I celebrate," he told the Guardian, in typically honest fashion. "I'm not going to lie and say I would run to the linesman or referee and say I've handballed it at Old Trafford.
"What would Wayne Rooney do? What did [goalkeeper] Roy Carroll do all those years ago when the ball was four yards over the line? I didn't see Alex Ferguson or Roy Carroll run to the referee or linesman and say it was over, did you?
"That's football. These things happen. You don't go out to intentionally handball and I don't think Luis did it intentionally.
"You could tell by the way he kicked the ball into the net that he was waiting for the referee to blow up. I'm not saying it's right but have Mansfield never had a bit of luck or an incorrect decision go their way?
"Put it this way, I don't think as big a deal would have been made of it had it been Daniel Sturridge."
Sunday's game will place the Premier League's two leading scorers on the same pitch.
Luis Suarez (15) and Robin van Persie (16) have 31 goals between them and Gerrard thinks they are streets ahead of other strikers in the division right now.
In fact the 32-year-old goes as far as saying that Suarez is the best centre-forward he has ever played alongside.
"Michu's surprised a few and he's flying but I think Luis and van Persie are the two hottest centre-forwards in the league by a long way," he said.
"van Persie has done it for years at Arsenal, he's a top player. I love watching him but Luis is the best centre-forward I've played with.
"He probably won't get the credit he deserves after everything that's happened and everything he's been through but he will from me. Imagine being a defender marking him. He can score fantastic goals, tap-ins, if he gets you in the box you're in trouble, he's a fighter and he's a winner. He doesn't like losing even in training. He ticks every box for me."
