MANCHESTER, England - Liverpools group-stage exit from the Champion League marked a new low in a disappointing season so far for one of the giants of English football. Alexander Radulov Jersey . Things could be about to get even worse. Manchester United can deal its fierce rival another blow when the countrys two most decorated clubs meet at Old Trafford on Sunday for what is widely regarded as the marquee fixture on the English calendar. You can watch the game live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4 and TSN5 at 8:30am et/5:30am pt. In last seasons Premier League, Uniteds decline was as stunning as Liverpools rise to second place under Brendan Rodgers. Now the opposite is true. Far from in top form, United is seeking a sixth straight win to continue what could yet be an unexpected challenge for the league title with Chelsea and Manchester City. Liverpool is languishing in ninth place, dropped out of the Champions League on Tuesday and is looking a shadow of the side that wowed the Premier League with its attacking verve in 2013-14. Chelsea leads by three points ahead of a home match against Hull on Saturday, while second-place City travels to last-place Leicester. Here are some things to know about the upcoming 16th round of league matches: ___ LOW LIVERPOOL Barely six months after being hailed for reviving a fallen power, Rodgers is under increasing pressure at Liverpool. Across the board, we have been looked at and analyzed, Rodgers said after Tuesdays 1-1 draw against Basel that eliminated Liverpool from the Champions League. For us, the solution is simple: We have to be better in our performance level ... but we have to realize where we have come from. Last seasons second-place finish perhaps placed unrealistic expectations on the Reds but they have still been a major disappointment. With Daniel Sturridge out and his replacement Mario Balotelli also injured, it is hard to imagine Liverpool repeating its 3-0 win over United at Old Trafford in March. We need to get our main striker Daniel Sturridge back and get some more goals in the side, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard said. ___ UNITED ON THE MARCH Could Man United muscle in to the Premier League title race? It would have seemed highly unlikely just a month ago, but the 20-time champions should not be counted out. Eight points behind Chelsea and five adrift of City, United is getting results despite falling below the standards demanded by manager Louis van Gaal. Just imagine what could happen if the team starts to hit form. With no European football to clog up its schedule and out of the League Cup early, Uniteds campaign has echoes of Liverpools last season when Rodgers benefited from having a whole week to prepare for league games. Its fantastic to be third in the table, Van Gaal said after Mondays unconvincing 2-1 win at Southampton, but I had hoped we would manage that with a better performance. ___ CONFIDENT CITY By beating Roma 2-0 away on Wednesday to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League, Man City continued on a rich vein that has seen the team win its last six games in all competitions. It also showed that talk of City being a one-man team is wide of the mark. Sergio Aguero is set to be out for up to six weeks with a knee injury, depriving City of its top scorer and biggest attacking threat. Fellow strikers Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic are back fit, though, as is playmaker David Silva, while midfielders Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri have chipped in with goals in recent matches. Playing with a belief that was lacking a month ago, City will be confident heading into likely relegation candidates Leicester, Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and Sunderland over the next three weeks as it looks to keep the pressure on Chelsea. ___ ELSEWHERE With Southampton having lost three straight games to slide out of the top four, West Ham is the unexpected name currently occupying a Champions League spot. Revived under manager Sam Allardyce, West Ham is fourth heading into a match at Sunderland on Saturday. Fifth-place Southampton looks to rebound from defeats to Man City, Arsenal and Man United when it visits Burnley. Arsenal hosts Newcastle in a game between the sixth- and seventh-place teams. Mattias Janmark Jersey . American Lindsey Jacobellis was third, while Japans Yuka Fujimori finished just off the podium. Maltais, from Petite-Riviere-St-Francois, Que., earned bronze at the 2006 Olympic Games and is set to return to the Games this February in Sochi, Russia. Johnny Oduya Jersey . LOUIS -- St. http://www.thedallasstarshockey.com/jaromir-jagr-hockey-jersey/ . I suppose Sternberg has earned the right to speak out since his Rays, despite one of the lowest payrolls in the Majors at $58 million, are entering the final weekend of the regular season holding down the first Wild Card spot in the American League, one game ahead of Cleveland and two up on Texas.The Pittsburgh Penguins dealt a top scoring winger, improving their forward depth in the process. Numbers Game breaks down the trade sending James Neal to Nashville for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling. The Predators Get: RW James Neal. Neal, 26, is a power forward who has been riding high while playing on Evgeni Malkins wing for the bulk of his time in Pittsburgh. Over the past three seasons, he has scored 88 goals, which ranks fifth, behind Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos, Corey Perry and Phil Kessel. Hes also put up dominant possession stats, but a lot of that would figure to be related to the favourable ice time that he gets with Malkin. While the Predators are aiming to get more scoring in their game, they dont nearly have the playmakers to compare with Pittsburgh, so if Neal ends up playing with Mike Fisher, Colin Wilson or Calle Jarnkrok, none of them is particularly dominant offensively, so expect Neals production to dip. The question is, how far? Before he joined the Penguins, Neal had 131 points in 214 games with the Dallas Stars, a 50-point pace over an 82-game season. That should be about the baseline, with room to move up because Neal currently is a better player than he was from age 21 to 23, but we can also keep in mind that Neal has scored more than 60 points twice in his career. Neal is signed for four more years, at a cap hit of $5-million per season, so hes a reasonably-priced first line forward for the Predators. The Penguins Get: RW Patric Hornqvist and LW Nick Spaling. Hornqvist is a 27-year-old winger who has been one of the more prolific shooters in the game over the past five seasons. Hes a four-time 20-goal scorer who is most effective right around the crease, deflecting shots and knocking in rebounds. He played primarily with Mike Fisher last season (with Colin Wilson and Matt Cullen their most common linemates) and while that line was effective -- Hornqvists relative possession stats have always been really good --- its not quite as dynamic as what opportunities Hornqvist should have in Pittsburgh. Miro Heiskanen Jersey. If Neal is expected to see his scoring go down as a result of this trade, naturally Hornqvist should expect an uptick in his scoring numbers. He scored a career-high 53 points last season and while his on-ice shooting percentage was a career-best, it wasnt outrageous and is still below what is typical for wingers alongside Malkin or Crosby. Signed for four more years, at a cap hit of $4.25-million, Hornqvist comes a little cheaper than Neal, but not dramatically, so the Penguins have to expect that they are not going to lose much offensively. Spaling, 25, scored a career-best 32 points last season, playing a career-high 16:01 per game, and while he may not play quite as much in Pittsburgh, the hope is that he might help the Penguins bottom six forwards. However, Spalings possession stats have been rough for most of his time in Nashville, which doesnt suggest that hell be turning the tide on his own. A restricted free agent who earned $1.5-million last season, Spaling is looking at a raise, but the Penguins are probably not in position to give him a lot more money, but they need Spaling to give them more reliable minutes on the third line. It didnt come as a massive surprise that the Penguins moved Neal -- it has been rumoured as a possibility for some time -- but the return may be something of a surprise. The Penguins didnt save a bunch of money; rather, they found a couple of forwards with the hope that will help improve their depth up front. They sacrificed the most talented player in the deal, though, and that presents a certain amount of risk, particularly if Hornqvist doesnt produce at the same level. For a Nashville team that is making a concerted effort towards a more offensive style, Neal is a big addition, well worth the price they paid.
