Manchester United will go into Sunday’s titanic clash against rivals Liverpool looking to maintain the domestic form shown in recent weeks.
Wins over Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion either side of a Champions League horror show against Olympiakos have finally given fans and manager David Moyes something to smile about.
Moyes will have a fully fit squad to pick from; having welcomed back the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones over the last few games.
The attacking quartet of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie, Juan Mata and Adnan Januzaj are expected to start as United seek to keep their faint hopes of Champions League qualification alive.
A win will close the gap on fifth place Tottenham Hotspur to just two points, with their derby game against Arsenal kicking off afterwards.
March has been highlighted as a mammoth month in Moyes’ tenure, with the game against Liverpool the first ahead of two other challenging contests against Manchester City and Olympiakos.
For Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers, SAS forwards Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are poised to start as they attempt to keep the pace with the Premier League’s frontrunners.
A win will see them leapfrog Manchester City into second place, albeit having played two games more.
They will go into the encounter at Old Trafford as favourites for the first time in nearly twenty years of United dominance.
Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho have trained after recent injuries and should be fit for selection, but will do well to force their way into the side.
Victory should put the Anfield side in good stead for the rest of the season, with potential title deciding clashes against Chelsea and the Citizens still to come.
