Manchester United face bitter rivals Liverpool in a mouth-watering Premier League encounter on Saturday night (AEST). United, who will need to keep winning if they are any chance of claiming consecutive titles, sit in outright second on the Premier League ladder, two points behind cross-town rivals Manchester City.
The Red Devils recorded one of the best comebacks of the season last week, recovering from a 3-0 deficit 50 mins into their match against Chelsea to come away with a draw thanks to a double from main man Wayne Rooney.
Liverpool will be confident of snaring a win after beating United 2-1 in their 4th round FA Cup fixture on January 28. Their recent form has been promising, with gun strikers Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt both firing up front. The two teams have met in one Premier League match this year which resulted in a 1-1 draw thanks to a late United equaliser from Javier Hernandez.
