Liverpool vs Man Utd: Team News, Likely Line-ups & Predicted Score
Man United play Liverpool in the early Saturday kick off at Anfield, in their fourth round FA Cup tie. Here’s team news, likely line-ups and predicted score.
Manchester United are away at Anfield tomorrow hoping to secure a place in the 5th round of the F.A Cup. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men will be fully aware of the importance of this game and should be right up for it.
With Liverpool having scraped through to the Carling Cup final by defeating Manchester City 3-2 on aggregate in midweek, its quite likely Daglish’s men will be tired and United will look to take advantage of this.
Of course the big pre-match talk has been centred around the return of Patrice Evra and how he’ll be received by the Anfield faithful, with both clubs stressing the need to concentrate on footballing matters and show respect to the players.
Man Utd’s ever growing injury list continues with Nani ruled out through an injury picked up against Arsenal last weekend and he looks set to be out for up to 2 months.
Wayne Rooney is also reportedly out so it looks like much of the goal-scoring burden will be on Danny Welbeck who i must say is playing superb football at the moment and has all the capabilities required to net a goal or two!
Phil Jones and Rio Ferdinand are also struggling, while long-term absentees Tom Cleverley, Michael Owen, Nemanja Vidic, Anderson and Ashley Young are all still unavailable.
Liverpool have no fresh injury worries, so the only headache for Kenny Dalglish will be whether to rotate following their midweek exploits. Craig Bellamy is likely to miss out though as he struggles to play three games in a row these days.
Despite the injury problems, i think Fergie’s remaining men still have the skill and experience required to win on Saturday and would expect this to be the case with an exciting game ahead of us from start to finish! I’m going for Liverpool 0-3 Man Utd!
