Man Utd vs Liverpool: Complete Premier League head-to-head record

01 May 2021 07:15

Manchester United vs Liverpool is one of the biggest rivalry games in world football and one that fans everywhere instantly look out for each year when the fixture list is released.

The north west giants are England’s two most successful sides in history, with 39 league titles between them. But no matter the fortunes of either club at any given time, these games are often a great leveller as the passion of the occasion pushes form out of the window.

United and Liverpool have faced each other 57 times in the Premier League since the competition began in 1992. United have won 28 of those contests to Liverpool’s 15, with 14 ending in draws.

There have also been 140 goals over the years, as well as 16 red cards.

It was 2005 before there was a 0-0 draw between Man Utd and Liverpool in the Premier League, although it has become a more common score-line in recent years, with four of five total 0-0 stalemates coming since 2016 alone.

Standout fixtures include a famous 3-3 draw at Anfield in 1994, a game that saw United rush into a 3-0 lead halfway through the first half and Liverpool claw their way back to level terms. Eric Cantona’s comeback from suspension in 1995 was against Liverpool at Old Trafford and finished 2-2, while United edged a 3-2 thriller in 1999 that produced two Jamie Carragher own goals.

Fernando Torres gave Nemanja Vidic nightmares in the late 2000s, memorably when Liverpool won 4-1 at Old Trafford in 2009, Danny Murphy made a habit of scoring against United in the early 2000s, and Diego Forlan became a cult hero in Manchester for a brace at Anfield in 2002.
