Modern Manchester United And Liverpool Legends Ranked From 'World Class' To 'Overrated'

Ex-Liverpool striker Fernando Torres and former Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo have been ranked as world-class players.

Ahead of Liverpool and United's Sunday showdown at Old Trafford, SPORTbible used TierMaker to rank a handful of legends from 'World Class' to 'Terrible.'

Torres featured in the world-class bracket alongside former teammate Xabi Alonso.

Joining Juventus superstar Ronaldo in the same tier to represent the Red Devils were none other than Wayne Rooney and Roy Keane.

Liverpool legends Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Dirk Kuyt all locked down their places in the 'Excellent' tier alongside United heroes Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Paul Scholes.

Controversial as it might seem, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic and Ryan Giggs fell into the 'Okay' tier for United.

And on the Liverpool spectrum, Jamie Carragher, Steve McManaman and Steve McMahon also appeared in the same tier.

United legend David Beckham landed in the 'Average' tier with Liverpool legends Sami Hyypia and John Barnes.

Unfortunately for Steven Gerrard and Michael Carrick, both players were deemed 'Overrated.'

Jurgen Klopp's men have had a scintillating start to the Premier League season and have won all eight of their league matches.

The Reds hold an eight-point lead over defending champions Manchester City at the top of the table.

Meanwhile, United have stagnated since their 4-0 victory over Chelsea on the opening weekend of the season and are two points above the relegation zone.

United and Liverpool will kick-off at 4:30pm UK time on Sunday.
