Manchester United vs. Liverpool is always a huge match, and although Liverpool are perhaps not what they once were, they've made up for the lack of footballing drama with... well, extracurriculars. Luis Suarez, just back from an eight-game suspension after racially abusing Patrice Evra in the reverse fixture at Anfield, is likely to get an unfriendly reaction from the crowd at Old Trafford, and that's going to be at least 178% of the media's focus today. The match? Pfft.
