Manchester United vs Liverpool
Football: 2013/2014 English Premier League, Round 30

Man United team enter matchweek 30 of the Premier League in 6th place, 9 points back from crosstown rivals Liverpool. It's been an up and down season for the Red Devils, best highlighted by their recent run of results: 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses in their last 6 in all competitions. But in Premier League action they've gone unbeaten in their last 4, and it's clear the signing of Juan Mata and the extended contract of Wayne Rooney have given the club a boost in an otherwise disappointing season. 5th place and the Europa League prize that comes with it is still within their grasp, but consistency in good form has eluded them all season. History does back the hosts as Manchester United have beaten Liverpool at Old Trafford in their last 6 matches. Furthermore, Fellaini put forth his best game in a United jersey last time out and has given Liverpool problems in the past (with Everton). 
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Evra – Carrick, Fellaini – Mata, Rooney, Januzaj – van Persie.

Liverpool continue to mount their surprising title challenge and currently sit in 2nd place (7 points behind Chelsea with a game in hand). They've gone on a 9-game unbeaten streak in league play that has propelled them above Arsenal and Manchester City. The main catalyst for this form has been their blitzing attack, as Liverpool have scored 15 goals in their last 5 league games, including an impressive 3-0 away win at Southampton last time out. The Reds will be looking to correct a few wrongs at Old Trafford as they haven't won in their last 6 trips. But Sir Alex Ferguson no longer patrols the sidelines, and his presence has been sorely missed by Manchester United and football fans alike all season long. Couple that with the fact that Liverpool are in great form and can't seem to stop scoring, it may be doom and gloom yet again at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Probable lineups Liverpool: Mignolet – Flanagan, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson – Henderson, Gerrard – Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge – Suarez.
