==================

More than 50,000 people are expected to pack Sun Life Stadium tonight for a match between two English soccer powerhouses.

Liverpool finished second in the Premier League last season, narrowly missing out on their first Premier League title. Meanwhile, Manchester United is under new management and hoping to turn their fortunes around following their worst season in more than two decades.
