Liverpool and Manchester United meet in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday as they renew a decades-old rivalry between two of the most successful clubs in British football.

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez tasted Premier League victory over United for the first time since his arrival in 2004 courtesy of Ryan Babel’s late winner.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at some of the most notable recent encounters on Merseyside.

With his side trailing to Juan Mata’s early strike, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sent on Steven Gerrard as a half-time substitute, but the plan did not work.

Substitute Javier Hernandez’s late strike came as little consolation, although United went on to win the title by nine points.

Goals from Steve Bruce, Ryan Giggs and Denis Irwin inside the opening 24 minutes left the home side with a mountain to climb.

A stunning Mata volley made it 2-0 and although Daniel Sturridge pulled one back for the home side, Louis Van Gaal’s men headed home with all the points despite Simon Mignolet’s stoppage-time penalty save from Wayne Rooney.
