Liverpool pair Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres have both been declared fit to play in today's high noon date with Manchester United. Dimitar Berbatov is set to make his United debut after signing from Tottenham for £30.75m on transfer deadline day.

Owen Hargreaves (tendinitis) and Michael Carrick (ankle) both return for the trip to Anfield.

The news that Gerrard and Torres are in line to face United will be a big boost for Liverpool.

Torres pulled up during his side's 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last month and missed Spain's recent World Cup qualifiers, while Gerrard has struggled with his groin injury since the start of the season.
