The 200th edition of the North West Derby will take place at Old Trafford on Saturday as second-placed Manchester United take on third-placed Liverpool in a match that could decide the shape of the Premier League top four at the end of the season. The reverse fixture, played in October, ended goalless and that was the fourth consecutive draw between these two teams. Overall, Manchester United have won 79 times against their rivals, while Liverpool have tasted victory against the Red Devils on 65 occasions.
Manchester United seem to have regained their momentum after a few hiccups, they have won their last two Premier League matches and consolidated their second place. However, Liverpool are just two points behind, so a slip-up here would see Jose Mourinho's team slide to third place. On Monday Manchester United pulled off a fine fightback from 2-0 down at Crystal Palace to win the match 3-2. Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Daley Blind and Phil Jones are injured, while Anthony Martial might also miss out.
Liverpool are in very good form, they are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions and have secured qualification to the Champions League quarter-finals after a goalless draw against FC Porto in midweek. Last week they cruised to a 2-0 Premier League victory over Newcastle, taking their advantage over fourth-placed Chelsea to seven points. Andrew Robertson and Jordan Henderson missed the midweek match due to slight injury issues but both might recover in time for Saturday's derby match.
Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young - McTominay, Matic, Pogba - Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez
Liverpool: Karius - Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson - Chamberlain, Henderson, Can - Salah, Firmino, Mane
My prediction: Liverpool to win 2-1.
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Man United win - 2.60
Draw - 3.29
Liverpool win - 2.62

That was one of the better games which United played this season although Liverpool are usually a comfortable opponent for them as they are an attacking side which suits Mourinho's counter-attack tactics pretty well.
But even that win against the old rivals couldn't satisfy United fans too much because all of the other failures lately.
