Like the look of tonight bar Giggs, think it's the young players turn to shine. Kagawa in the hole with Zaha out left maybe would have been nice but the Pool will be so up for it with a very strong team. I'm going for a 2-2 draw." Cheers Alan, here we go!Darren says: "From a neutral. Man U have their only true world class player out in RVP, and this is the worst man utd line up I've seen for many a year so I have a feeling their in for another embarrassing hiding 4-1 to Liverpool. Got 20/1 on Moyes not to be man utd manager come the end of the season so hope there's plenty more results like the one at man city." Cheers for that view Darren, I'm sure they'll give Moyes a season at least, but you never know....Ahmad Hejazi from Syria says: "I think anyone that says they don't care about the result tonight ain't a proper Liverpool / united fan, strong teams, game on, hope Liverpool win 2 -0."

She tips United to win 3-1 also!""I'm predicting 2-1 to Liverpool tonight. We have Suarez back who is desperate to play and I think him and sturridge up front will be awesome. Come on Liverpool, you can beat them, you've proved it once already this season." Vanessa from Kent - lifelong Liverpool fan.Ryan Entwistle says: "United had a a tough start to the league and I do not blame Moyes, United were useless against City aside from Rooney. Im glad to see Chicharito and Kagawa back, my gut feeling tells me United will win but barely, but my brain says 1-3 to Liverpool based on past games and current squads." Cheers Ryan, we will see, not long to go now!Mark says: "I am going with 3-1 to Liverpool, Sturrige, Suarez and Gerrard, Rooney with a late consolation, c'mon Redmen!!"Daniel says: "Personally, I think we will comfortably get a win tonight against Liverpool. Rooney to score and united to win 3-1!" My scoreline too Daniel, enjoy the game!Rob says: "I'm hoping for a Liverpool win tonight, my prediction is 3-1 to the reds."Thom (Manchester) says: "I'm gutted that Moyes isn't brave enough to start Zaha and Januzaj but glad to see Hernandez and Kagawa. Its been a really tough start but the manager needs our support and he needs to learn quickly that starting Ashley Young isnt going to win any points!!!!! Trust the young talent we have David and don't wrap them in cotton wool like you did with Rooney and Barkley! 3-1 win!"Joshua says: "United should struggle against a good Liverpool side but I think united will win 3-2 with Hernandez and Rooney on the scoresheet."Tony from Pretoria, South Africa, says: "Liverpool have put up their best squad, with Suarez being an added bonus, hungry for goals. They mean business. Still no van Persie for Man Utd. The Reds seem like a tall order for the Red Devils who I doubt, will deliver the goods. 2-1 Liverpool." Cheers Tony, enjoy the game!Dave in Darlington says: "i fancy united to dominate this game and control it pretty much throughout they are the kings at bouncing back and suffering defeats at the hands of liverpool and city in recent weeks i say liverpool beware."Jake, LFC fan, says: "C'mon liverpool, it's gonna be a tough game, but who knows what will happen, both strong teams, but with Suarez back to Liverpool, we're even stronger, reckon it's gonna be a close call." Lauren, LFC fan, says: "It'll be a draw 1 all, Good luck boys."Barry Lee says: "Giggs???? Kidding right?? Januzaj on the bench and Giggs to start? Not a good sign. Moyes out of his depth."Scott says: "Think that we're going to be in for a classic tonight. With Suarez back and playing with Sturridge I can see Liverpool winning. Think we'll get goals so I'll go for 4-2 Liverpool. With Suarez and Sturridge getting two each. Hernandez and Kagawa for United."Adam Woods, LFC fan says: "I think Brendan Rodgers will use the disappointment of last Saturday and the much need return of Luis Suarez to really boost the morale within the team. His starting XI tonight is very strong and indicates how strongly he values this competition. Nervous Liverpool fan, but I reckon we can steal this 2-1." It should be a cracker Adam, cheers!My view: I fancy United to bounce back at home tonight, opening the scoring and then hitting the Reds on the break. So a 3-1 win with Hernandez to score first which pays a handsome 75/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions? Send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.comFancy a bet? Sky Bet go 11/8 for a United win, 12/5 for the draw and 2/1 for a Liverpool victory.Stephen says: "Watching this game in work from the States. Looks like uniteds defense could be in for a long night.Looks week and the liverpool front 3 are strong running at defenders. 3-1 liverpool." Cheers for your views everyone so far!Elizabeth says: "Man u 1 , Liverpool 2"Rafee says: "I'm a life long Man Utd fan, but the start we've had in the PL, it's just terrible with the we have played against the bigger teams like Chelsea, Liverpool and City where we got smashed. I still believe in David Moyes who has done OK in my opinion but in the transfer window he is just not Ferguson...still expecting a great game 2-1 to Man Utd."Rob says: "2-1 United. With United playing a youthful team maybe? Would like to see Zaha out wide on the right, Kagawa playing off Hernandez and Fellaini in the middle with Clev/Ando. Cant see Rio or Vidic starting though, maybe Smalling and Evans in at centre half."Garry Finney says: "Going for a 2-1 win for united tonight. Abolish the memory's of Sunday. Come on united. Season ticket holder and proud."Chris Green from Huddersfield says: "Although Manchester United lost by a big scoreline in their previous game, I don't think they'll be too fazed by the defeat because the Red Devils have many years experience when it comes to bouncing back from crushing defeats. Obviously, Liverpool are a team with many talented players, so this match won't be easy for the Red Devils even though they're at home. I expect the Red Devils to dominate the possession if they have a good start to the game; however, if they concede an early goal and they make sloppy and unnecessary mistakes at the back, it could be a long, painful and nail-biting evening for the United fans."FIRST VIEW - Douglas says: "We will hammer Liverpool 3-0 tonight and get our season back on track. I think Super David Moyes will unleash the Wilf on them & make a real statement. We will prove that we are the champions for a reason."Referee - Mark Clattenburg (Tyne & Wear).Teams - Man Utd: De Gea, Rafael Da Silva, Smalling, Evans, Buttner, Jones, Giggs, Nani, Rooney, Kagawa, Hernandez. Subs: Anderson, Carrick, Welbeck, Fabio Da Silva, Zaha, Amos, Januzaj.Teams - Liverpool: Mignolet, Toure, Sakho, Skrtel, Enrique, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Moses, Sturridge, Suarez. Subs: Brad Jones, Alberto, Aspas, Sterling, Ibe, Kelly, Wisdom.Good news for Liverpool fans - striker Luis Suarez will start for the visitors in tonight's game, the Anfield club have confirmed. He's served his ten-match ban for biting and will be raring to go! Indeed, there is no resting players for this competition, with Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge also included in a full-strength Reds line-up. Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney captains a strong United side that nevertheless shows eight changes from the team defeated at Manchester City on Sunday. David De Gea also keeps his place but Wilfried Zaha and Adnan Januzaj are only on the bench as Javier Hernandez and Shinji Kagawa are amongst those to start for David Moyes.Welcome to Old Trafford where Man Utd host Liverpool in the Capital One Cup third round. What will the outcome be tonight? Send your views / predictions to steve.pass2@bskyb.com and I will post up the best throughout the evening.
