It's the FA Cup third round, the stage where the Premier League clubs enter the competition, and nothing catches as the eye as Liverpool's visit to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday.

It's the latest edition of an old rivalry. History shows that this fixture brings out the hair-trigger tempered personality in everyone - players, management and fans. Add to that the drama of an FA Cup and the stakes couldn't be higher - a win/loss against a bitter rival could make/break a team's season.

It has been a tumultuous week for Liverpool. Losses against Wolves and Blackburn proved to be the final straw and their manager, Roy Hodson, departed on 'mutual consent'. What Liverpool fans will be pleased about is that their former player and manager, and a local hero, Kenny Dalglish aka 'King Kenny', has been given the club's reigns till the end of the season.
