The only two positions Liverpool are stronger in according to the tweet is at right-back and central defensive midfield.

One big point of contention on social media is Nemanja Vidic being rated above Virgil van Dijk.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can maintain the consistent success the United team of 2008 did.

Liverpool host United at Anfield on Sunday and it's safe to say the gap in quality between the sides heavily favours the home side.

Who do you think was better, United '08 or modern day Liverpool?
