Liverpool (a)

Barclays Premier League
Sunday, October 25
Kick off: 14:00

Top 5 match facts
- Liverpool have lost four games in a row, conceeding seven goals along the way. It's their worst run since 1987

- But before that, they won their previous six games, scoring 18 goals

- Since season 2004/5, we've had three 1-0 wins, one 0-0 draw and one 2-1 defeat. Not many goals have been scored when these two sides have met at Anfield of late.

- In eight years, Owen scored 118 goals in 216 Liverpool appearances

- A United win would put them 10 points clear of Liverpool

United: Rooney (calf) and Fletcher (groin) are both doubts. Park will be missing. Evra and Giggs are back

Possible team

Liverpool: Johnson (groin) and Gerrard (thigh) are both unlikely to feature, but Johnson will probably be risked. Aquilani (fitness), Dossena (groin), Riera (hamstring) and Kyrgiakokes (knee) all miss out. Torres is back.

Probable team

The referee will be Andre Marriner, who has been a Premier League ref since 2005 and first picked up the whistle in 1992.
His actual name is Andrew, but he took the 'w' off his name to make it sound more exotic.
He is currently on the list of international referees. He gives out an average of three yellow cards per game.

Odds with Ladbrokes
Liverpool: 9/5 or 2.80
Draw: 23/10 or 3.30
United: 6/4 or 2.50
