The world's top two players - Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald - will go head to head on Sunday in the final round of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Both players carded scores of 66 on Saturday to sit on top of the star-studded leaderboard on 17 under par.

The duo started the day on level terms and finished there as well - with both players rolling in birdie putts at the 18th on the Earth Course.

Donald and McIlroy are three clear of South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel and five in front of their compatriot Branden Grace and Dutchman Joost Luiten.
