Manchester United 1-0 Liverpool
Starting with the most recent first, this is a game that could see a turnaround in David Moyes' fortunes at Manchester United.
The media was always going to be on the Scotsman back at the first sign of failure after he replaced Sir Alex Ferguson, but defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City made the Capital One Cup tie against Liverpool a must win.
It seems that a weak United side will struggle to compete with their better organised rivals in the major tournaments this year, so a cup run could be important to generate positivity around the club.
With the media and fans alike ready to pounce on a man under the kosh, this win against their biggest rivals will help no-end come his first annual review at Old Trafford.
