Five Things Kenny Dalglish Must Do For Liverpool To Beat Manchester United.

In 1993, Sir Alex Ferguson guided Manchester United to his first Premier League trophy and the club's first since 1967. It was United's seventh League title, and Liverpool fans said, "Yea, yea, come back when you've got 18."
Well...Here were are 18 years later, and Manchester United has those 18 titles. The problem is, so does Liverpool.
Manchester United come to Anfield on Sunday for the second League and third overall meeting between the two clubs this season. United won the first two, both at Old Trafford.  
When Ferguson took the job in Manchester, he said his aim was to "knock Liverpool off their (expletive) perch."
He's done a decent job. As Manchester United manager for the last 25 years, he's won 35 trophies. In the same time, under eight (Kenny Dalglish twice) different managers, Liverpool has won 18 trophies.

In total, the Reds have 59 trophies spanning their illustrious history, while the Red Devils have 58. This is all setting up so nicely, huh?
But the most important thing of all are those 18 League title apiece. Manchester United reaching that oh-so-elusive 19th title first would be an absolute dagger in the hearts of Liverpool fans.
Sir Alex and his men hit a slight snag on the way to the title in the loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge Tuesday and have a tough run-in to win that record-breaking crown, but they are still heavy favorites.
Here are the five things King Kenny must do to give the Red Devils an even bigger stumbling block on their road to history.
