Suarez And Van Persie Look To Seal Their Side The Win

Image
It's that time of year again, the time when Liverpool make the short trip to Manchester and attempt to wipe that smug grin off Alex Ferguson's old wrinkly face. He can chew all the extra he wants, everything that comes out of his mouth still stinks and on Sunday the Reds will look to pull off a rare victory at Old Trafford.

With Daniel Sturridge scoring on his debut for Liverpool and Luis Suarez in excellent form it certainly feels as though the Reds are capable of scoring, the thing that worries me is can we hold on to a lead if we manage to find one?

For Liverpool there are no new injury worries but with the news about Jose Enrique recently there has been a shuffle in defence with Glen Johnson switching sides and Andre Wisdom most likely taking the right back position for this one. I like Wisdom a lot but I get the feeling he's going to have a tough time against United.

The Red Devils are minus their scouse talisman Wayne Rooney but it won't worry them too much what…

United, Bring It On!

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has a fully fit squad to choose from for the big game against Manchester United on Saturday. It was a fruitful affair last time for Liverpool as Dirk Kuyt put a hat trick past the Red Devils at Anfield. 
This game requires no build up, win, lose or draw it is always an exciting clash and Alex Ferguson has been quoted this week saying "I have always considered it to be the game of the season in English football." 
Since Dalglish has been in charge, excitement levels have been higher in general but even more so when these sort of fixtures come around. Kenny of course is no stranger to intense matches and he's certainly no stranger to Fergie's mind games.
Confidence is the key for Saturday, we know United have had the better start to the season but Liverpool haven't faltered much, even in the loss against Stoke we bombarded the goal with shots and were unlucky.
Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll are two players who will be looking to be in rec…

12th Man Key In Search For United Victory

The fans will confidently back the Reds tomorrow in what has to be the best clash in the Premier League...
Anfield tomorrow is the destination for Alex Ferguson's Manchester United. It needs no build up, I'm sure the majority of you, like me, are already buzzing for the match and after United fell to a Chelsea defeat and Liverpool to a West Ham one, both sides will be looking not only for three points but as always, for bragging rights.

For those of you going to the match, no doubt the atmosphere will be phenomenal, I'm just wondering whether Gary Neville will brave enough to get in with the away fans this time like he did at Stamford Bridge...

I'm soddin' gutted as for the first time this season I'm at work when our match is on. I can't really complain because last season i was at work on several occasions with fixture clashes, just annoyed that the first one this season is the most exciting clash. It's not all bad as i can still watch the match on the …

Just never stops being funny does it?! Hahaha!...
So once again we're here folks. The excitement, the nerves, the bubbling hatred for the likes of Gary Neville and Farty Fergie's extra chewing gob.
This kind of feeling only tends to come around twice a year and as much as it brings out the worst in me i can't help but absolutely love it. This is what football is all about, the banter, the biggest clubs and the memorable clash of world class players going all out against each other.
Of course tomorrow evening i could be in a total different state of mind, quite possibly depressed... But this is the roller-coaster ride that we all have tickets for due to being a Liverpool fan.
Liverpool are again still without regular members in this head to head - Dirk Kuyt & Fabio Aurelio. The lack of some experience could possibly be detrimental to the Reds but with Joe Cole back from his ban and having made a great performance on Thursday along with rested Gerrard, Carragher and Torres,…
