    Hopefully we'll go into this game with three wins in a row and the mancs having lost. In 21 Premiership meetings at Anfield we've won only seven and there have been only four draws. We last won in 10/11

    One way or another I can see this being the biggest thread of the season by the end of next week, I wonder if someone could do a 'Suarez mention' count..............

    For all the good that we have done so far with the two wins, this is where our season could really kick on from. United are clearly firing and will be on a high if they beat Chelsea tomorrow.

    Great atmosphere, attacking intent, early goal, 3-1 win.

    Must say.. If we were to win this, the majority of our fan base would go into 'optimism overdrive'

    It'll be horrific.

    Cannot see a 1-0 been enough to get a win over Utd so more goals please.

    Fancy us to win 2-1.

    I'll be glad to get this one out of the way. If Coutinho, Gerrard and Sturridge play well and Van Persie doesn't we have a fair chance of a good result.
    2 - 1 Liverpool...

    1-1

    We just need to keep Van Persie quiet, I don't see many more dangers from United watching their first two games, apart from maybe Rooney if he plays.

    Hopefully we'll play like we have in flashes, for the whole game on sunday, if we do we have a good chance of upsetting them. I'd play the same team we have in the first two games.

    Before the Chelsea game, I was worried about this one. Not anymore. If our midfield/defence was able to keep Lampard, Ramirez, Hazard, Oscar, Schurrle and De Bruyne quiet for the entire match; I can't really see them having many problems with Aspas, Coutinho and Sturridge - no matter how golden they've looked so far.

    I could be wrong; I suppose it's possible that every attacking player in the Chelsea team had a simultaneous off day, or that Mourinho specifically said to them 'We're playing for a draw, that means don't even try anything creative' but honestly, I can't see it.

    At the other end of the pitch; Toure and Agger did well to keep Benteke pretty quiet on Saturday but personally, I think Cole/Cahill/Terry/Ivanovic is a much stronger back line than Johnson/Agger/Toure/Enrique; and I just think we've got too much up front for Liverpool to handle.

    Van Persie only needs one or two chances to put one away, and he'll be given the space by Welbeck drifting. As per the papers this morning, Rooney's staying and he'll surely be playing on Sunday to pick up where he left off against Chelsea (hopefully with properly weighted passes this time) and considering the ease with which Valencia outpaced Cole, I can't see either him or Zaha (if he happens to play) having problems against the significantly slower Enrique.

    The only downside is that Kagawa, once again, will be probably be on the bench.

    United to take a comfortable 3 points with a silver lining for Liverpool as they win the possession.

    Bit simplistic, no? I'm not saying our lads are better than there's but the interchanging and movement is probably better/more fluid for us, Chelsea lacked a direct thread up top too. Torres is gash and Schurrle isn't really a striker.

    Having a direct threat up top doesn't really worry me - Ferdinand and Vidic are both playing, neither are carrying an injury scare and I 100% fancy either/or to control your top man. I'd perhaps be a bit worried about the full backs but Evra looked as good as he ever has yesterday; Jones is perhaps a worry with what, at times, is ridiculously poor discipline tactically - but with Valencia in front of him he usually looks a lot more solid.

    You'd expect it to be a good game but I'm not sure how open both teams will be. If United can keep Coutinho quiet then we'll struggle in the final third. Defensively, I'm most worried about corners and our own propensity to make mistakes.

    As for a direct threat up top, I only mentioned that because I thought Sturridge tipped the game in our favour at Old Trafford when he came on. We've done well in the past exploiting Vidic's lack of pace, hopefully Coutinho and Sturridge can do the same on Sunday.

    I've gone for a score draw because I can't see us keeping United out.
