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. Clayton Kershaw 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.

Roger Penskes team announced Wednesday that the Colombian driver will add two NASCAR races -- Indianapolis and Michigan -- to his full-time IndyCar schedule. Montoya already is scheduled to compete in the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on May 10. One week later, he will attempt to qualify for the Indianapolis 500. Now hell return to Indy for the Brickyard 400 in July, too, and if he qualifies for each one, Montoya would be the first driver to start three feature races at Indy in the same season. "Three chances gives me a better chance of winning one of them now," said Montoya, who will drive the No. 12 Ford Fusion for Penskes team at Indy and Michigan. No driver has won even two of the biggest feature races at the track -- the 500, the Brickyard, the U.S. Grand Prix or the MotoGP race. Montoya wants to be the first to have it on his already unique resume. The 38-year-old was dominant in his 2000 Indy win, becoming the first rookie winner in 34 years. He completed another first Wednesday -- becoming the first driver to experience every racing configuration at the historic Brickyard. In addition to competing on the 2.5-mile oval in IndyCars and Cup cars, he also has competed on the original road course in Formula One, did a two-seater ride on the MotoGP course and was one of about two dozen drivers testing Indys new road course Wednesday. This years return to open-wheel cars could help him prepare for the June 15 and July 27 Cup races. He has competed in that series for the previous eight years. "I think running Michigan and here are two tracks where running open-wheel helps you, especially Michigan, which is a lot like an open-wheel car because you dont slow down much and use momentum and lot of high speed," Montoya said. "Coming here to the Brickyard, its one of those places where I feel like I got robbed a few times. To be able to come here and be able to close that deal will be really, really nice."" Montoya has two wiins, 24 top-five finishes and nine pole awards in his Cup career. Custom Dodgers Jerseys. . He has one top-10 finish in three IndyCar races this year. He will join Penskes full-time Cup drivers, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, both of whom have already visited Victory Lane in 2014. Ryan Blaney will drive the same No. 12 car for NASCAR races in Kansas and Talladega. SKF will sponsor all the races except Indianapolis. Until moving back this season, Montoya hadnt driven IndyCars since 2000 when he was competing with Chip Ganassis team, Penkses biggest rival. Montoya won seven races in CART and the 500 in his two open-wheel seasons with Ganassi. Their run together also included the 1999 CART championship. He then moved to Formula One, where he spent six seasons before abruptly quitting to return to the United States to compete in NASCAR. He reunited with Ganassi, but the results never came. His last win in NASCAR was in 2010, a year after he made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and finished a career-best eighth in the standings. Montoya was in serious contention to win at least two Brickyard 400s, but both chances slipped away in the waning laps. Montoya led 116 laps in 2009 until a speeding penalty on his final pit stop cost him the win. He was also leading in 2010 with 20 laps to go before a late caution sent him to pit road, where he got four tires while everyone else took two. Stuck deep in traffic with little time to make up the ground, Montoya crashed and finished 32nd. Penskes team is willing to give him another chance. "It (the Brickyard) is one of the biggest races of the year and to go there with somebody that could have won the race a few of times already is something that were looking forward to," Team Penske President Tim Cindric said. "To just run the Brickyard would be a pretty big ask of our team and of Juan, without having spent much time in our cars or having been out in a Cup car for a while, so we felt like we needed to give him another shot at it prior to the Brickyard so he could get ready for us."
