and live on Freeview channel 276
The Red Devils faced Jurgen Klopp’s men in their first pre-season friendly in July and came away with a comfortable 4-0 win.
However, when it comes to league fixtures against the Reds, United have struggled since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, failing to beat the Merseyside club in their last eight attempts.
Last campaign saw a season to forget for the Red Devils. They finished sixth in the table with 58 points, their lowest in the competition’s history, while also conceding nine goals against Liverpool over both games.
The United faithful will be hoping their campaign gets back on track at Old Trafford on Monday with a win over Klopp’s side, who are also without a victory so far.
Despite their recent poor form when facing Liverpool, there have been some memorable results for the Red Devils against the Merseyside club since Ferguson retired in 2013.
With that being said, let’s take a look at United’s five best results against the Reds since Ferguson’s departure…
