Sir Alex Ferguson may have already succeeded at knocking Liverpool off their perch but there are few other games in the Premier League that equal the fire and brimstone of Manchester United taking on the Merseyside club. This season's first installment takes place October 15th at Anfield with United sitting pretty at the top of the league and Dalglish already dropping points at the Britannia and White Hart Lane.
United were fortunate that Norwich couldn't take advantage of their chances in their previous match while Liverpool enjoyed match official Martin Atkinson's favor during their 2-0 victory at Goodison Park. Three points are at stake but players and fans from both sides will treat this match as the Cup final that it always seems to be.
The last time these two teams met Dirk Kuyt scored a memorable hat trick at Anfield and Ferguson will be keen to consign that result to history.
Here are 10 steps Liverpool can take to secure three points on Saturday.
