Liverpool vs Manchester United – Insight into matchday No 26

Liverpool vs Manchester United – Insight into matchday No 26


The biggest game in English football will take centre stage this weekend, as Liverpool host arch-rival Manchester United at Anfield. It is more than just football when Liverpool and United play.

The derby is about two cities, one built on shipping and the other on manufacturing, that experienced similar histories of boom and bust.

Manchester United are currently experiencing a boom period. The Red Devils were crowned Carabao Cup champions last weekend with a 2-0 win over Newcastle.

Liverpool have experienced more bust than boom this season. However, the Reds, who won the Carabao Cup the season before, are on a four-game unbeaten streak, keeping four straight clean sheets.

Liverpool vs Manchester United: Head-to-Head

Liverpool and Man United played 61 times previously in the Premier League since the league’s creation. United have dominated the head-to-head series versus Liverpool, with many of their wins coming in the 1990s and 2000s.

The Red Devils have a record of 29W-14D-18L against Liverpool. It is incredible to think Liverpool have won just 18 times against Man United in the Premier League era.

Liverpool are unbeaten in seven straight home matches versus Man United in all competitions. Since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have been back on their perch. Erik ten Hag is aiming to knock them back off.

Liverpool posted a record of 5W-3D-2L in all competitions against Man United in their last 10 head-to-head meetings. However, the Red Devils won 2-1 earlier this season at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford. Mo Salah scored a consolation effort.

Jurgen Klopp vs Erik ten Hag

Klopp has faced Man United 17 times in his career, posting a record of 6W-7D-4L. Only three times has Klopp faced Ten Hag. The German manager won two and lost one of the three fixtures. Both wins came against Ajax when Ten Hag managed the Dutch club.

Top goal scorers in Liverpool vs Manchester United fixtures

  • Mohamed Salah (LFC) – 10 goals
  • Steven Gerrard (LFC) – 9 goals
  • Denis Law (MUFC) – 6 goals
  • Marcus Rashford (MUFC) – 6 goals


Sunday’s match at Anfield will feature three very in-form players. Marcus Rashford cannot stop scoring for Man United. He now has 14 league goals and 25 in all competitions.

Meanwhile, on the other hand, Mohamed Salah goes into the match with eight league goals after scoring in midweek against Wolves, as Liverpool won 2-0. Salah has scored 10 goals for Liverpool in 11 matches versus Man United.

In addition to Salah, Darwin Nunez is playing well. He has six league goals this season along with three assists. He did not play against United in the reverse fixture due to a suspension.
