The charity game, which raises funds for local communities, begins on Saturday at 15:00 BST.

The first leg of the Legends of the North clash with Liverpool was staged at Old Trafford in May, raising over £1.3million for Manchester United Foundation. It finished 3-1 to the Merseysiders, with Dimitar Berbatov scoring our goal.

Fifteen names have been confirmed in our squad for the return match, with the potential for more players to be added before the weekend.

Danny Pugh, Darron Gibson, and Fraizer Campbell will also make their maiden appearance, slotting in alongside regular favorites such as Denis Irwin, Jaap Stam, and Ronny Johnsen.

Ex-skipper Antonio Valencia is scheduled to make another appearance, while Berbatov looks set to lead the line.
