Liverpool and Manchester United have an old history in the Premier League – the former dominated the 1980s before the latter took the crown in the 1990s. Now they are both competing in an important match that will play a big role in deciding Champions' League spots later in the season.

Liverpool captain and England international Steven Gerrard as well as teammate Fernando Torres are both vital to Liverpool's strong midfield but the availability of either due to injury is uncertain.

BBC pundit Mark ‘Lawro' Lawrenson predicts that Dimitar Berbatov could prove to be "the perfect partner for Wayne Rooney who was fantastic for England on Wednesday.

When he plays through the middle he can do things no other English player can."

Liverpool can be backed at 9/4 on Betfair, while the defending Premiership champions are best priced at 13/8 with Coral, Stan James and Bet Direct.
