Liverpool v Manchester United: Video Preview

Next Story

Liverpool host Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League this weekend, with two of the biggest clubs in world football facing off at Anfield.

The Merseysiders have been in good form since the arrival of Kenny Dalglish, winning three of their last five clashes and going undefeated in eight before defeat at West Ham United last weekend.

United also suffered a setback in their last outing, with a controversial defeat away at Chelsea. However, they remain top of the table and have only lost two Barclays Premier League clashes all season.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side have won the previous two meetings between the sides this season, with a 3-2 win followed by a 1-0 FA Cup triumph. Both were at Old Trafford, though.


Nemanja Vidic is suspended for the clash and joins Rio Ferdinand on the sidelines, with Wes Brown expected to start alongside Chris Smalling in central defence.

Liverpool could give Andy Carroll a debut following his £35 million move from Newcastle in January, although 'King Kenny' didn't give too much away in his pre-match press conference.

History is a huge factor in the clash, with United chasing a 19th English league title. They currently sit tied with Liverpool in the record books on 18, but Dalglish was keen to play down the significance.

"We want to help ourselves first, and if we hinder someone along the way then that's not our problem. We've always said we control our own destiny, but for someone else's we don't control that."
