Liverpool have the edge in recent encounters, winning their previous three over Utd at Anfield but it is clear that this season Sir Alex’s men mean business, and the Red Devils currently lie at the summit of the Premiership.
Manchester United have been inspirational so far this season, playing some superb football and Ferguson has already unearthed the green roots of the future in Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Danny Welbeck.
It is clear that youth will play an important part in Ferguson’s plans this season, however there are just the small signs that their red hot form may be beginning to cool, and cracks may just be starting to show in the United armoury, with Norwich creating plenty of chances at Old Trafford in their previous outing, and there is no doubt Liverpool supporters will go into the game with real sense of optimism.
Much will depend on the behaviour of Wayne Rooney, who once again has made the headlines for all the wrong reasons, and his sending off against Montenegro for England last week will have done him no favours as he returns to Merseyside to face the wrath of the Kop. Rooney has already hit nine in seven games and should be brimming with confidence, but this past fortnight may have dampened his spirits.
Liverpool should welcome back captain Steven Gerrard as the Reds skipper comes back to full fitness, and his appearance in the red of Liverpool should give the club a massive lift.
Much will depend on the partnership of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, and there was no better way for the ex Newcastle man to get off the mark than scoring in the Merseyside derby. Suarez of course, is on fire, the little Uruguayan scoring in his last two games, and he is sure to head the Liverpool offensive.
Liverpool are 11/5, the draw is quoted as 9/4 while Manchester United are the favorites at 7/5.
Its sure to be a cracker and a fiery affair and is the perfect way to kick off your weekend, with the action underway at 12:45 GMT
