The two sides met at Old Trafford in the summer and now the squad that we will use to represent the Reds has been revealed (via the club website):

It’s set to be a brilliant day, goals from Mark Gonzalez and Luis Garcia proved vital last time out and the Reds will be hoping to impress our home crowd in the second-leg.

The probable stand-out name that most of the present Reds will be excited about will be Xabi Alonso and to see the midfield maestro in action once again will be very special.

The real winners will of course be the charities involved and the brilliant work that takes place by the LFC Foundation will be greatly benefitted by this showpiece event.

One of the best ways to help is by going along and purchasing a ticket for the day. Tickets can be purchased online here.
