Manchester United vs Liverpool Rivalry | Origins, Hooliganism, Head to Head record

The kind of rivalry which makes Evra vs Suarez looks like child’s play.

To regards it as the biggest rivalry in football will not be an understatement. Manchester United and Liverpool epitomise the word ‘rivalry’ in the game. Players of each club don’t get transferred to another one albeit a very few exceptions, but no direct transfers. The transfer of Gabriel Heinze being the last controversial one as the Argentinian pushed hard for a transfer to Liverpool but was refused and then he went to Real Madrid.  Both of the clubs together have won a massive 37 Premier League titles. Considering the number of big clubs from London, this number is proof of this intense rivalry. But Since the 1990s it has all been Manchester United.

One of the most important and interesting facts about this fixture, which we found on Wikipedia, is that a Manchester United vs Liverpool game is generally scheduled during the lunch time. At noon, so that the fans don’t get the chance of getting absolutely battered drunk before the match. A wise decision considering the animosity between the two sides. And alcohol could prove to be a catalyst in already a highly intensified affair.

But It Started Way Before

The origin of this rivalry is also as riveting. Cotton, at the center of it all. Liverpool, being one of the first docks which were created in England had the upper hand. Obviously, the material arrived at Liverpool. And Manchester was a city under an immense industrial revolution. Which meant that the most of the manufacturing factories were at Manchester, a center of production. Liverpool charged more to the material which were going to Manchester. Hence a rivalry was born and it had nothing to do with football. And this was 18th century. Way before most of you, who are reading this, were born. Maybe even your fathers weren’t born.

Hardcore Hooliganism

The most hardcore of it all would be the incident which took place in the 1996 FA Cup final match. Manchester United had won the match. And when they were walking to collect the trophy, a Liverpool fan spat at club legend Eric Cantona and also managed to throw a vicious punch at Sir Alex Ferguson. But that was not the nastiest thing about that match. Reports seems to believe that Liverpool supporters threw s**t, amongst many other objects.

But the most sickening of all is the chants thrown by some of the supporters of both the clubs. Manchester United fans about the Hillsborough incident and Liverpool supporters about the Munich disaster. Recently, these have died down as rational sense have prevailed but still their are some people who like to chant about dead people. We ought to ignore it because that’s not what the rivalry represents. Its belittling the rivalry which stands for way more than one could imagine.

Head to Head Record

In Barclays Premier League – Manchester United have been winners in 62 match whereas Liverpool in 53 matches, 44 draws between them.

In FA Cup – 9 Man Utd win compare to 4 Liverpool wins and 4 draws.

In League Cup – Liverpool have been winners thrice whereas Manchester United only once.
