Tense affair: Man Utd vs Liverpool

Saturday, 11th February 2012 11:00pm
The first fixture of the English Premiership round 25 will see the two giants Manchester United and Liverpool clash at Old Trafford.

The two teams are separated by 16 points but the match will be much closer than that after Liverpool knocked out their hosts from the FA Cup.

Their last match at Anfield finished one-all but more than that was the Patrice Evra/Luis Suarez incident that ended with Suarez being suspended for eight matches for racially abusing Evra.

That incident will ensure that this will be a tense affair at Old Trafford.

Man Utd are just two points behind Man City and a win will see them take top position.

A win for Liverpool will see them go fifth and maintain the fight for Champions League football next season.

Fourth vs Second: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Sunday, 5th February 2012 5:18pm
In round 24 of the English Premiership, fourth placed Chelsea will host second placed Manchester United.

This is a crucial match for both teams and both need to win it in order to keep up with Manchester City.

Neither team will change positions because of a loss or a win but the benefit of the result will be felt by the surrounding teams like Tottenham Hotspurs, Arsenal and Newcastle.
