United are unbeaten in 13 Premier League games after last weekend’s draw at Elland road, while Liverpool haven’t lost in five in the league. A win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could guarantee us Champions League football next year and keep the pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table. Our opponents across the M62 sit sixth in the Premier League, four points off the Champions League positions.
The clubs together boast a combined 39 Premier Leagues/First Division titles, 19 FA Cups and nine Champions League/European Cup trophies. The shared success on the pitch over the late 20th century in particular, has heightened the fierce rivalry between the clubs.
United lead the all-time series between the two sides, earning 81 victories to Liverpool’s 67, with the teams being equally matched on 58 occasions. Solskjaer and Klopp, however, have only faced each other five times as managers; both have one win each, with the other three games ending as draws. In our last meeting, United won 3-2 in this season’s FA Cup fourth round, with Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood securing the bragging rights.
