Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says today's trip to Manchester United is a must-win for both teams.

Liverpool have already chalked up fantastic away wins at Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City - a fourth today would complete a remarkable set.

Suarez has no doubt what today's result means to both sides, with United hell bent on keeping pace with City at the top of the table and Kenny Dalglish's men desperate to win a place in Europe.

He said: "Both United and Liverpool need to win this one for our different objectives. Our challenge is to get back to European competition and I believe we can do it.

"Against Tottenham I wanted to play more minutes but it is normal that the coach gives me chances gradually. Eight matches out is an important factor."
