For the second time in seven days, Manchester United and Liverpool go head to head.
After last week’s anticlimactic goalless draw at Anfield in the Premier League, Old Trafford is now the scene for their FA Cup fourth round clash.
This time the net will definitely bulge at some point. With no replays in this year’s competition, one of these bitter rivals will go through to the fifth round today, even if it means going to extra time and a penalty shootout.
Man Utd are on a 13-game unbeaten run in the league, a run that has put them top of the table at the halfway stage of the season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have found goals hard to come by in recent weeks, drawing a blank in every game they’ve played so far in 2021.
As a result they are winless in their last five, and are now six points behind their rivals after losing 1-0 at home to Burnley on Thursday – their first home league defeat in nearly four years.
