Manchester United will aim to derail Liverpool's quest for Premier League glory on Sunday afternoon when they host the Merseysiders at Old Trafford and the Red Devils have been given some passionate advice from former stars ahead of the crunch match.

Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic know what it takes to beat the Reds in the Premier League, and the pair have been advising United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer how to conduct his team talk ahead of Sunday's clash with Jurgen Klopp's side and Ferdinand certainly shows his passion for the biggest rivalry in the Premier League.

Broadcast on United's Twitter account, Ferdinand emphasised the magnitude of Sunday's clash and he certainly showed the love he would have had to stop Liverpool from winning the Premier League title.

Ferdinand said: "If I was in that changing room and Liverpool were going for the title, and I had an opportunity to stop them I would do everything...everything, blood sweat and tears.  They aren't coming to Old Trafford and being given a chance to put their stamp on it and try and get one hand on the trophy.  That ain't happening, that's what I'd be saying, not under our watch!"

Vidic may have tasted victory against the Reds, but he also suffered four red cards in clashes against Liverpool, but the Serbian defender was excited to be back at Old Trafford.  Vidic said: "It's great to be back at Old Trafford, there's a big game on Sunday.  I played 13 games, we won seven and lost six, but I hope on Sunday Man U will do well, win the game and I think it's important to continue what they are doing."

A passionate Ferdinand ended by saying: "I  don't want their fans going back up the motorway laughing, thinking, yeah we've got one hand on it now, we've just done Manchester United.  No, that can't happen!"  "That's the team talk, Ole it's done," concluded Ferdinand when trying to inspire his former teammate.
