So its Round Two against the Manchester clubs this Saturday afternoon.
We face the Old Enemy Utd at Anfield in an early kick-off 12:45pm.
Liverpool have everything to play for and have home advantage in the highest profile game of the FA Cup 4th round.
Following the great performance and result against Man City on Wednesday to reach the Carling Cup Final next month,
Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool now have the chance to dump Man Utd out of the FA Cup at Anfield.
Will Kenny Dalglish risk playing Craig Bellamy again?
After his man of the match performance against City, is Bellamy’s knee up to starting a game again, so soon after Wednesday’s performance.
I think Kenny will play him again for an hour or so in the hope of establishing a lead against Ferguson’s team who may be missing Rio Ferdinand, Nani and possibly Wayne Rooney to injury.
Jay Spearing is back in contention following his hamstring strain but it may be a game too soon for the tough-tackling midfield dynamo.
The game is shrouded by the eight game suspension to Liverpool’s Luis Suarez thanks to Patrice Evra’s complaints to the FA.
The fact that the FA chose to accept Evra’s comments, even though he had no evidence to back it up is a major source of annoyance at Liverpool FC and Suarez himself who is nearing the completion of the harsh ban.
If Liverpool play with the application and intensity they showed against Man City then I fancy them to win 2-1 at Anfield.
