Liverpool confirm full legends squad to face Manchester United at Anfield

Liverpool have confirmed their full legends squad to face Manchester United at Anfield this Saturday at 3pm.

The Reds won the first 'Legends of the North' fixture at Old Trafford in May of this year. Luis Garcia opened the scoring in the first half, followed by a brace after the break from Mark Gonzalez to secure the 3-1 victory.

Sir Kenny Dalglish will hope his side can secure a similar victory when they take on their rivals at Anfield this week. Dalglish will be joined in the dug out by fellow Liverpool legends Ian Rush and John Aldridge.
