Premier League - Matchpack: Manchester United v Liverpool

TEAM NEWS

Dimitar Berbatov has already been assured his place in the United starting line-up and will almost certainly be joined by Edwin van der Sar, Nemanja

Vidic, Patrice Evra and Paul Scholes, who all missed Tuesday's draw with Rangers. Antonio Valencia (ankle) is out until February, so more responsibility falls on the shoulders of Nani.

Striker Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard return to Liverpool's starting line-up as manager Roy Hodgson restores his strongest side. The pair were left out of Thursday's Europa League victory as Hodgson made eight changes and he likely to effect a similar number at Old Trafford.

Joe Cole will play only his second Barclays Premier League match of the season after serving a three-game ban.

MATCH STATS

The Red Devils have won 12 of their last 13 Premier League games at home.

Nemanja Vidic has been sent off three times against Liverpool in the Premier League – more than any player versus a single opponent in the competition.

There have been six red cards shown in the last seven Premier League meetings between United and Liverpool.

Three of the last four meetings between Liverpool and United have seen the scorer of the first goal go on to lose the game.

Fernando Torres has scored in his last three Premier League games against United.

Only one of the last 20 Premier League meetings between United and Liverpool has ended as a draw.

Only Chelsea (five times) have won away at Old Trafford more often than Liverpool (4) in the Premier League era.

Liverpool have won just one of their last 11 Premier League away games and failed to score in the last three.

Liverpool have won only one of their last six Premier League North-West derbies away from home.

Thirty-one of United’s crosses this season have found a team-mate, a league-high.
