Manchester United travel to Liverpool today for the crucial Premier League tie at Anfield…
The home side go in to the match having won both their opening games 1-0, thanks to two Daniel Sturridge winners. The England forward turns 24 today, and will hope to continue his blistering start to the season.
Steven Gerrard has bagged four in his last six matches against the Premier League champions, and will play an anchoring role alongside Brazilian teammate Lucas, allowing the brilliant Coutinho to pull the strings in the final third.
Liverpool are also expected to unveil three new signings before the match, in Mamadou Sakho, Tiago Ilori and Victor Moses.
United have been dealt a blow after hearing that Wayne Rooney will miss the clash, following a clash of heads with Phil Jones that left him needing ten stitches. This leaves Shinji Kagawa to play off the rampant Robin Van Persie, who will hope to carry on scoring to win his third consecutive Golden Boot.
Last season United left Anfield with a 2-1 victory – triggered by Jonjo Shelvey’s red card, and Brendan Rodgers will hope his players manage to keep their heads in today’s massive tie.
