English Premier League, Liverpool Vs Manchester United preview

Liverpool are unbeaten at home in the Premiership this season, but have not won against United at Anfield in the league since November 2001. Rafa Benitez’ side have not scored in their previous four league meetings with Sir Alex Ferguson’s men, who won 2-0 at Old Trafford in October.



OUT: Luis Garcia (Knee), Harry Kewell (arthritis)

DOUBTFUL: Peter Crouch (broken nose)

Statistics: The Reds extended their unbeaten home league record to 30 games after their 4-0 win over Sheffield United last week.

MANAGER'S QUOTE: "A perfect week for us and our supporters, and our players are enjoying playing football. We had to change seven players which can be a bit risky. Sometimes it's a risk but I always say the same thing - you have to have faith in your squad" - Rafa Benitez after his side's win over Sheffield United.

Manchester United:

RETURNING: Gary Neville (rested)

OUT: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (knee), Darren Fletcher (ankle)


Statistics: United have won three and drawn one of their previous four visits to Anfield. Ryan Giggs is set to make his 700th appearance for the club.

MANAGER'S QUOTE: "The fans at Reading were fantastic. The support they gave us, both there and at Fulham, was absolutely unbelievable. There were only 4,000 of them at Reading, but the volume was incredible. If only we could get 17 times that amount of noise from those at Old Trafford" - Sir Alex praises United's travelling support.
