North West Derby at Old Trafford – Reds’ Rivalry Revived

The October showdown between Liverpool and United was an underwhelming one, but fireworks are expected at the Theatre of Dreams this Saturday with only two points separating the two teams and nine matches left in the season.

Manchester United and Liverpool both secured great wins last weekend. The Reds downed Newcastle 2-0 while Manchester United had an exciting last-minute win over Crystal Palace away from home. Big match for both sides here as they look to maintain their position in the top four.

Manchester United and Liverpool will get Week 30 of the Premier League campaign underway with a bang on Saturday as they prepare to collide at Old Trafford in the weekend's early kick-off.

The two teams drew 0-0 when they met at Anfield back in October, but a far more feisty duel is expected this time around as third-placed Liverpool hope to leapfrog the Red Devils into second with a three-point haul.

Tough game to call here. Always a tight contest between these two age-long rivals and the recent results suggest nothing different. Liverpool will be coming off a mid-week clash in the Champions League and Manchester United have the home field advantage which is about the only thing that might count. Both teams will have the chance to temporarily close the gap on leaders Manchester City, who won't be in action until they travel to face Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Monday evening.

It’s make-or-break now for Chelsea who have lost their last two games in the Premier League to both Manchester sides and get another tricky matchup here against a Palace team that will have their tails up. Chelsea now sit five points outside of the top four on the EPL table and will be desperate to get back on the winners list here to secure a spot in next seasons Champions League. Crystal Palace will be full of gusto when they head to Stamford Bridge Sunday morning after a tough 2-3 loss to Manchester United in Week 29. Palace were up 2-0 in the home clash but ultimately let it slip, with the last goal coming in the 91st minute to squander a great opportunity to distance themselves from relegation. They are now firmly in the zone, sitting in 18th place with 27 points but are not down and out yet.

Chelsea will have one eye on their Champions League tie with Barcelona next week, but will arguably see this as an equally important game as making the top four of the EPL currently seems more manageable than winning the UCL. After two tough weeks away to the Manchester sides, Chelsea will welcome the return to Stamford Bridge here and should get a comfortable win against Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, Arsenal hope to bounce back from their recent patch of poor form when they host Watford on Sunday, having suffered a 2-1 defeat away to the Hornets earlier this season and seeking redemption. This match will be a test as to whether or not they’re back after gaining the 2 goal advantage away at AC Milan in the UEFA Europa League.

It’s safe to say that the title is already wrapped up for Man City, but they’ll be chasing the record of becoming the first ever team to score 100 points in a season, as they currently sit on a whopping 78 points with nine games to play. Manchester City should be fresh even after their midweek clash, which was at home, and with the form they have been in throughout the last year of play, it’s hard to bet against them here. Stoke have been horrendous of late, winning just 1 of their last 10 games and falling into the relegation zone in the process.
