Liverpool and Manchester United lock horns for the first time this season at Anfield in what is Liverpool’s first home match since the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel were made public last week.
It promises to be an emotional occasion and both sides will pay tribute to the 96 men, women and children who lost their lives on April 15th 1989, with the captains of both clubs releasing 96 red balloons prior to kick off, while three sides of Anfield will form mosaics displaying the words ‘The Truth’, ‘Justice’ and ‘96’.
LFC should take some comfort from our recent encounters with the Red Devils at Anfield. We’ve not lost a home match since 2007 that encompasses four league games (three wins, one draw) and an FA Cup 4th round match that we won 2-1.
All time Premier League record:
Manchester Utd – Pos: 1st P: 776 W: 503 D: 163 L: 110 F: 1,551 A: 665 GD: +886 Pts: 1,672
Liverpool – Pos: 4th P: 776 W: 380 D: 196 L: 200 F: 1,239 A: 761 GD: +478 Pts: 1,336
