Man Utd v Liverpool showdown
Manchester United will take on arch-rivals Liverpool on Saturday

Top-of-the-table Manchester United host Liverpool on Saturday in what has been billed by many as a Barclays Premier League title decider.

Sir Alex Ferguson's United have a seven-point lead over the Reds and Chelsea, and victory would all but give them an 11th league title under the Scot.

Liverpool are seeking their first league crown in 19 years but a post-Christmas slump saw then lose ground. Nevertheless, victory would give their fans hope.

BBC Sport spoke to Liverpool great Ian Rush and United legend Peter Schmeichel for their views on the two heavyweights.
