Liverpool will be hoping to keep on the coattails of Premier League leaders Chelsea as they take on fierce rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds, who could be as many as ten points behind Jose Mourinho’s men by Saturday evening, also have the chance to put distance between themselves and fifth place Tottenham Hotspur, who host Arsenal later in the day.
Three points for Brendan Rodgers’ men would also see them move fourteen points ahead of the reigning champions, and all but end their slim chances of finishing in the top four.
The game may just come too soon for Lucas and Mamadou Sakho, who are both nearing returns from knee and hamstring injuries respectively, while Jose Enrique is still some way from recovery.
Ahead of the match, Daniel Sturridge has played down the chances of the club winning a first league title in twenty-four years, according to Sky Sports.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City man believes there are sides better placed than the Reds to win the title alluding to both of his former employers, though both are yet to play at Anfield.
Liverpool host Manuel Pellegrini’s men on April 13th, before welcoming Chelsea to Merseyside two weeks later.
