After spending a dirty weekend with our bit on the side, the FA Cup, FootballFanCast is ready to turn its attentions back to the old ball-and-chain – the Premier League.
That may seem a derogatory term and we may have enjoyed our Third Round fling, but FFC can’t wait for the return of the top flight, especially with arguably the highest-profile fixture on the Premier League calendar due on Sunday in the form of the North West derby.
Indeed, Manchester United take on ancient rivals Liverpool in a 90-minute war at Old Trafford – which is our Fixture in Focus – and although the reverse outing ended scoreless earlier this season, we’re expecting the coming instalment to deliver some fireworks – especially with the Reds firmly in the title race and the Red Devils looking to claw their way back into it.
With Liverpool on the rise under Jurgen Klopp and United still finding their feet in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, there really isn’t much to choose between the two sides these days. With that in mind, we’re asking United fans to (very, very) briefly put their anti-Anfield prejudice aside and let us know which Liverpool stars they’d like to see controversially join the ranks at Old Trafford.
No player has moved directly between the two clubs since 1964, a certain Phil Chisnall, so which Liverpool star do you want to break that 53-year spell? Let us know by partaking in the poll below, giving each player a thumbs up or a thumbs down!
