Kenny Dalglish has highlighted a victory over Manchester United during his second reign as Liverpool manager as one of his 'stand out' memories, according to the Daily Star.

The former Liverpool boss, known affectionately as 'King Kenny' lost his first match upon his return to the club 1-0 to United in the F.A Cup, but got his vengeance when his side beat the Red Devils 3-1 at Anfield.

Ahead of tonight's fixture which sees Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool take on David Moyes Manchester United in the Capital One Cup, fans will be hoping for a similar result.

In ‘Kenny Dalglish. My Life’, the Liverpool legend recalls both matches against United.

“My first game was at Old Trafford in the FA Cup and the Liverpool fans gave me a wonderful welcome back," he said.

"The unfortunate thing for me was somebody got the sack for me to get the opportunity.

"I really admire Roy Hodgson and was sorry that it didn’t work out the way everybody hoped it would."

But the 62-year-old has pin pointed the day that his side trumped United at home as one of the greatest moments of his managerial career. 

"One incident that stands out in my memory is when we beat Manchester United 3-1 at Anfield in March 2011 a few days after my 60th birthday.

"The fans started singing ‘Happy Birthday To You’ when we were 3-0 up. Fergie said: “I didn’t know it was your birthday.” I answered: “It isn’t!"

Liverpool will be wary of United tonight in the wake of the Manchester side's humbling at the hands of City at the weekend, but Rodgers will be confident of doing well with the added boost of Luis Suarez's return.
