Starting this thread early. A win for United will bring them within 2 points of Liverpool, a Liverpool win puts them 8 points ahead. Liverpool have an FA Cup match against Plymouth on Jan 8 and a League Cup semifinal with Southampton on the 11th. United play Reading on the 7th in the FA cup and Hull on the 10th in the League Cup. Predicting 3-2 to United, they've won their last 6, albeit against weak opposition.
