Form book out the window

The North West Derby is one of the biggest derbies in the game.

Hundreds of millions of fans the world over will be tuning in for the match.

The old adage goes that form gets thrown out of the window when heading into these games.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got five wins on the bounce or if you haven’t scored in ten. You can do it on the day, on this day.

Attack v Attack

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is too proud a Manc to sit back and park the bus.

The United boss may also not have the confidence in his defence.

The visitors are more likely to try and play football against the Reds than our more recent opponents.

We don’t do well against stubborn low blocks. We do, however, thrive when taking on attacking sides. We are lethal on the counter.

Title decider

Liverpool play at their best when there’s all to play for.

When it’s a crucial title decider, we turn up. We saw this against Spurs in December.

We can bank on Liverpool coming up with the goods because of everything that is on the line.

Man United are joint top on points, we can open up a gap with a win – that will be motivation enough for the lads.
