Manchester United have won seven of the last eight league meetings at Old Trafford – the exception was Liverpool’s 4-1 win in March 2009.
Only two of the last 24 league clashes between the sides have ended in a draw. The last league draw at Old Trafford was back in March 2000.
Manchester United are looking to complete the Premier League double over Liverpool for the first time since 2007-08.
United have won eight of their last nine league games (W8, D1).
They have already conceded 28 goals in the league in 2012-13. But their 4-0 win against Wigan last time out meant they have kept back-to-back clean sheets for the first time in this campaign.
Robin van Persie has scored 64 goals in 76 Premier League appearances since January 2011. He has scored 16 goals in 18 league starts for United.
Ryan Giggs could make his 650th league appearance for Manchester United.
United are unbeaten in their last 21 home league matches in the month of January, winning the last 16. The last time they lost at home in the league in January was against Liverpool on 22 January, 2002, when Danny Murphy scored the only goal.
Nemanja Vidic has been sent off three times in this league fixture, more than any other player in any fixture in Premier League history.
Liverpool have won five of their last seven Premier League games (W5, L2).
Since the beginning of December, the Reds have picked up 15 points – only Manchester United (19) and Tottenham (16) have earned more points.
But the Reds have not won any of their 10 previous matches against a top-half club this season (D5, L5).
Liverpool have scored 11 goals in their last four league matches, with Luis Suarez scoring five of them.
The Uruguayan now has 15 league goals in 2012-13, the highest total by a Liverpool player in a single season since Fernando Torres scored 18 in 2009-10.
Steven Gerrard’s total of eight league assists this season is only one short of his personal best in a Premier League season (nine in 2008-09). It is also more than he has managed in the previous two seasons put together.
Gerrard has scored five goals in his last seven league matches against Manchester United.
Liverpool’s Stewart Downing is on 299 career league appearances, while Martin Skrtel could play his 200th game for Liverpool.
