Manchester United v Liverpool: match preview

If Liverpool want to establish themselves as perennial title challengers then winning at Old Trafford has to become a regular occurrence. Brendan Rodgers' team have a chance to start a new trend as the last time Manchester United lost at home to their fiercest rivals was the 4-1 humiliation of 2008-09. David Moyes remains resolute in the midst of a trying inaugural season in charge of the champions but with Liverpool 11 points better off a victory could prove pivotal in turning his team's fortunes around.
