Manchester United vs Liverpool: Preview and LINEUPS

Manchester United welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford trailing their rivals by 11 points in the league

Manchester United Team:

De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Vidic, Evra; Mata, Fellaini, Carrick, Januzaj; Rooney, van Persie

Subs: Lindegaard, Ferdinand, Cleverley, Kagawa, Valencia, Young, Welbeck

Liverpool Team:

Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Suarez, Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge scored the winner in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. Can he heap more misery on Moyes at OId Trafford?

Man Utd finished last season 28 points ahead of Liverpool, now they trail their Merseyside neighbours by 11 points; a remarkable swing in a remarkable six months for both sides. As disappointed as United fans have been this season, Liverpool fans have been delighted. Matches between these two sides are always intriguing but the fact that Liverpool are as short as 15/8 to win at Old Trafford speaks volumes. Moyes’ side come into the game off the back of one of their most convincing performances of the season last weekend against West Brom. There is a tough decision to be made however, as United looked far more threatening after Robin van Persie was substituted. For Liverpool, fans will be hoping the Suarez and Sturridge partnership can perform like they have done all season. If they do, that incredible points swing might just increase.
