Liverpool players joined team-mate Joe Allen on a night out to celebrate the midfielder's 24th birthday - just 48 hours before they go up against Manchester United.

The two rivals go head to head on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool players including Luis Suarez, Martin Skrtel and of course the birthday boy himself took the chance to head out for a night on the town - and were pictured surrounded by their wives and girlfriends.

There is no suspicion of wrong-doing from Liverpool's players - although should they come undone against Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow then questions are bound to be asked.

Liverpool go into the game against their fierce rivals in third place in the Premier League in third place behind both Manchester City and Chelsea.

Manchester United are languishing down in sixth place, and are in danger of finishing below their rivals for only the second time in the Premier League era.

Ahead of the game, Liverpool mangers Brendan Rodgers has warned Manchester United that their top four hopes will go up in smoke if they don't win on Sunday - which could have long-term implications for the Red Devils.

“When you’re not in the Champions League, it can get away from you very quickly," he said.

“This club is worldwide, monumental, but we found it difficult because the best players want to be in the best competitions.

“Anyone will suffer when they’re not in there."

He continued: “We are 11 points clear now, and if it goes to 14, they can’t do it. Even 11 is going to be very tough because we are entering a period where we are stronger.

“If you look at the last ten games of last season, and the 28 games this — that’s a season worth of games — we would be 12 points ahead of them over the course of that.

“We would have scored 91 goals and they would have scored 64 or something like that. This is a team of champions, United, and are renowned for real attacking intent.

“So for us to make that turnaround in that period shows the progress and work that has gone on.
