Now here's something you never thought you would see.

One doesn't need to be a walking encyclopaedia of footballing facts to know that the story of United and Liverpool is in many ways the story of the game's post-war history in England.

Feelings always run high when supporters of the two biggest clubs in England meet. At the end of last season, United fans bravely went to Anfield and unfurled a '19 times' banner, after the club had overtaken Liverpool and their 18 championship wins.

Liverpool fans had at one time taunted their rivals with their success, unfurling their own banner back in the 1990s telling United fans to 'come back when you've won 18'.
