Manchester United and Liverpool face off for the second time this season in the Premier League, after tonight’s hosts thrashed the Manchester club 5-0 back in the earlier stages of the campaign.
The fixture is incredibly significant for both sides; not just because of the historic rivalry between the two cities, but also because of the more pressing issue of their respective places in the table.
Liverpool will be looking to leapfrog Manchester City at the top of the Premier League for at least a 24 hour period, as their title rivals do not play until Wednesday evening.
Manchester United however will be looking to put pressure on top 4 rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, who through patchy results have failed to pull away from the Red Devils, despite the Manchester club only winning two of their last 6 league fixtures.
