Form guide: United’s assured 3-0 win over West Brom at the weekend will have done much good after only one win out of five in February. It wasn’t so much the result as the manner of it that has renewed confidence ahead of Sunday’s crunch clash, as the Reds brushed aside Albion with poise and confidence. Liverpool, on the other hand, are currently riding the crest of a Luis Suarez-Daniel Sturridge wave and are second in the league, seven points behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand. It has been five years since Liverpool arrived at Old Trafford with a genuine chance of winning the title and longer still since United faced up against their old foes so far off the Barclays Premier League summit. However, it won’t dilute a fixture that always get pulses racing as both teams scrap for pride and, more crucially, points.
Ins and outs: After recent injury woes, David Moyes has a reasonably healthy squad at his disposal. Rafael should be fit after picking up knock at The Hawthorns, but Jonny Evans, Javier Hernandez and long-term absentee Nani are set to miss out. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers can also boast a similarly plentiful squad and could be boosted by the return to action of Lucas and Mamadou Sakho, who both featured for the club’s reserves last week. Jose Enrique remains sidelined.
