Liverpool can really hurt arch-rivals United this week

The fixture that every English football fan eagerly waits for is once again upon us. Historic rivals Manchester United and Liverpool will take on each other at Old Trafford on Saturday, in the biggest advertisement of Premier League.

This season, the meeting has extra significance as both clubs are separated by only a couple of points, and both are vying for the runners-up spot behind Manchester City.

If the Merseysiders can claim a much-awaited win at Old Trafford, they will move above their opponents in the league table.

Coming into this game, United have struggled to pick up results. They had to come from two goals down to win 3-2 at Crystal Palace on Monday.

Prior to that result, United had played a goalless draw at Sevilla in Champions League and had lost at Newcastle United. Meanwhile, after a shock result at Swansea City, Liverpool are back scoring goals for fun.

They have won their last three games in the league, and they also booked their spot in Champions League quarterfinals this week. However, all they must be thinking about right now is their upcoming clash with United.
