Man United game crucial to our season Rafa make or break

Rafa Benitez believes it will be game on in the title race should his side upset Manchester United on Saturday.If Liverpool are to have any chance of overhauling Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title, they must beat them at Old Trafford on Saturday. Their manager Rafa Benitez has admitted as much, and his side could hardly have had better preparation than Tuesday’s 4-0 Champions League win over Real Madrid

Liverpool trail their north-west rivals by seven points and have played a game more. But they have a particular motivation to obstruct their title charge this season: should United lift the title, they will equal Liverpool’s record of 19 league championships.

 

Forward Fernando Torres needed a pain-killing injection in his ankle to play on Tuesday, but is expected to be fit for Saturday.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s team will once again be favourites for this game due to their impressive squad strength which means players such as Darren Fletcher and Carlos Tevez will likely take part in this Saturday lunchtime clash having missed the victory over Inter Milan.

Liverpool will be buoyed by their 2-1 win at Anfield earlier this season and will be fully aware that this game represents their last chance saloon for their title challenge. If United win they will be 10 points clear with a game in hand a surely insurmountable challenge.

The corresponding fixture last season saw United cruise to a 3-0 win aided by a Javier Mascherano sending off and a similar result could be on the cards this time.

The consolation for Benitez and his side is that Manchester United are a class apart and they will be able to focus all on their energies on the Champions League.
