Liverpool takes on Manchester United in the English Premiership on today in one of the most eagerly awaited games of the season. One that could go a long way to deciding who wins the title. Liverpool has beaten United in their last five attempts and will be looking forward to making it six. After their narrow 1-0 UEFA Cup win over Vitesse Arnhem in Holland on Thursday night, Liverpool coach Gerrard Houllier turned his attention back to the Premiership and the prospect of Manchester United's visit to Anfield on Sunday. "Well, we have got two-and-a-half days to prepare for that. We know it is a massive game for both teams, but this is the kind of game you want, I mean obviously we would have preferred to play on Tuesday, but that's it, we will live with that," said Houllier. Despite recent reverses, it could be argued that Liverpool has seldom had a better chance of beating their archrivals on Sunday. Houllier has virtually a full squad to choose from. The same though cannot be said however, of United who will be missing David Beckham, Roy Keane, Rio Ferdinand, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville from their starting line-up through injury.
