It is going to be definitely a fiercely fought face-off between the loosely held yet a competent side of Kenny Dalglish against the Red Devils of Sir Alex Ferguson tonight at Anfield. Liverpool vs Manchester United always throws up a cracker and we should not expect anything less this time around.  If you are asking who’s the better team on the papers, then you are definitely falling into a lot more problems because there is nothing that separates this two sides at the moment thanks to injuries to key personnel on both sides.

Last time, you saw these two teams on a field it was a treat for the viewers as after a  marvelous hat-trick by Dimitar Berbatov, the Reds showed an emphatic spirit for coming level in the game from 2-0. But in the end, Berbatov was just too hot to handle!  Tonight Manchester United would definitely will be looking forward to earn those precious 3 points that they lost at Stamford Bridge.

Wayne Rooney is by far the man to be watched tonight who will be along Javier Hernandez and the duo would leave no moment alone for tormenting and bludgeoning the Liverpool defence.

As for the Reds, Andy Carroll is finally going to feature in the game, albeit mostly from the bench, so the Liverpool fans expect nothing less than goals being gunned down at the United end.  Carroll returns to action after a lengthy injury lay off and could play a huge role in influencing the game along with Luis Suarez whose silky touch and exquisite skills will torment the make shift central defence of Manchester United.  Without first choice centre backs Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, United will be uncharacteristically weak at the back, something Liverpool’s forward line will look to exploit.

Inconsistent performances is the main worry for Kenny Dalglish, especially after the 3-1 hammering to West Ham.  But this being a high voltage clash with emotions running, the Reds will be fired up! Sir Alex Ferguson will be raring to get his boys together in their best form to realize the dream of lifting the 19th league trophy and overshadow the Reds in terms of domestic trophies and create history!

Let see If the Reds “Walk Alone” or we watch the Kop flags flying high at Anfield!
