Dalglish’s last spell at Liverpool ended after a 1991 FA Cup match regarded by many as one of Merseyside’s greatest and Saturday he finally returns for the 216th meeting between the clubs.

The most played derby in English football is followed by Sunday’s north London encounter when Arsenal can ill afford a slip-up.

Roberto Mancini must rally his Manchester City team against Blackburn following a midweek Champions League defeat and the fallout from Carlos Tevez’s apparent refusal to play, while leader Manchester United plays Norwich.
