A match preview for the Capital One Cup clash between Manchester United and Liverpool.
“I think this comes down to who needs this the most and after Sunday’s defeat to Man City it is imperative that Moyes gets a win under his belt in this match and I believe he will field a strong side. The return of Suarez adds intrigue to the match, a player of undoubted high quality but I can’t help feeling expectations on him are far too high at this point for a player who has been on the sidelines for so long.
Utd will also be thirsting for revenge for the 1-0 defeat earlier in the season and Liverpool fans might not want to hear this but I think Manchester Utd’s desire to win this one could be greater given the events of the last Week.” – DUNDEE FC

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez is available again after completing his 10 match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season and could be in line for an immediate return to the starting line up.
Centre back Daniel Agger will be assessed late on for a hip injury and could feature, but Glen Johnson misses out with an ankle problem, whilst Phillipe Coutinho sits out nursing a damaged shoulder and Joe Allen has yet to recover from a hamstring injury.
Manchester United’s Dutch striker Robin van Persie is unlikely to feature after missing out on Sunday’s loss at Manchester City with a groin injury and is unlikely to have recovered in time.
Defenders Rafael and Phil Jones are doubtful, but the likes of wingers Nani and Wilfried Zaha should get a chance.
Despite Liverpool overcoming United by a goal to nil earlier this season, United have not lost to Liverpool at Old Trafford since a 4-1 Premier League defeat in March 2009.
At Old Trafford, the Red Devils have won each of their last five matches with Liverpool in all competitions.
