What channel is Liverpool Legends vs Man Utd Legends? Kick-off time, how to watch and team news

Liverpool take on Manchester United in the second leg of their Legends of the North match at Anfield on Saturday as the Reds aim to follow up their 3-1 victory over the Red Devils in the reverse fixture in May.

The two teams will renew their long standing rivalry yet again when a whole host of stars from the past don the colours of their beloved clubs once more for a charitable course, having raised over £1.3million just four months ago.

This time around though, there are a number of changes to both sides, as fans prepare to flock in their thousands to witness some of their favourite heroes in action once again this weekend.

When is Liverpool Legends vs Man Utd Legends?

Liverpool Legends vs Man Utd Legends will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday, September 24 at Anfield.

The last meeting between these two sides came in the reverse fixture back in May, when the Reds recorded a 3-1 victory to be crowned the Legends of the North at Old Trafford.

A goalless first half was followed by a frantic second, beginning with Luis Garcia putting the Reds in front before Dimitar Berbatov won and scored a penalty to equalise. However, Mark Gonzalez scored a brace, including a sublime free-kick, to win the tie for the visitors.
