Old enemies Liverpool and Manchester United do battle this weekend at Anfield in a mouth watering encounter which will go some way to deciding who wins the race to the Champions League places in the Premier League.

The Reds are currently one place and two points behind fourth placed Manchester United and a win in the derby match will see them move into the top four, a position they won’t surrender lightly having won five league matches in a row.
GK: Simon Mignolet
The Belgian ‘keeper has kept an impressive 12 clean sheets in a season where his personal form has mirrored that of his club, due to an upturn for both since January.
RCB: Emre Can
The centre back/holding midfielder has been a revelation for the Merseyside club since his summer move from Leverkusen. After starting the season with an injury, he has gone from strength to strength with some brilliant performances.
CB: Martin Skrtel
The Slovakian adds steel and ugliness with his game to Liverpool’s backline. It’s unlikely Manchester United’s forwards will fancy themselves in a 50/50 with him.
LCB: Mamadou Sakho
Since making the £18 million move from Paris Saint-Germain, Sakho has struggled to excel. The French international will hope to thwart and Red Devils attack and put in a performance worthy of his pricetag in this pressure game.
