Manchester United vs Liverpool live on ESPN2

Soccer News of the Week

* Liverpool heads to Old Trafford for a League match against Manchester United on Saturday. The last time the two teams met in League play this season, United’s Patrice Evra accused Liverpool striker Luis Suarez of racial abuse. After a prolific hearing, the FA handed Suarez an eight-game suspension. He returned last Monday for Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against Tottenham. Saturday’s match will be the first time Suarez and Evra share the pitch since the October incident.

United is currently second in the Premier League. The team’s 55 points put them just two points behind leaders Manchester City. Liverpool still hasn’t recovered from last season’s fall from Top Four grace, and stands seventh in the standings, with 39 points.

Manchester United vs Liverpool airs live on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 7:30a ET on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes & ESPN3.

* Fabio Capello is out. The Italian coach resigned as England’s national team manager on Wednesday, following the FA’s decision to remove John Terry as captain. Capello was vocal in both his support for Terry and disappointment that the FA undermined his authority by issuing the punishment without his involvement. Despite being one of the most successful coaches for England, public approval of Capello’s performance has waned since the nation’s lackluster showing in the 2010 World Cup.
