Since Manchester United and Liverpool prepare to renew their competition on Super Sunday, we take a trip down memory lane to revisit a number of the iconic matches of the traditional Premier League fixture…
This match has to have fire, has to possess thunder. There has to be incident, although there may be draws. You cannot let these games ramble. This game felt different because of what was at stake, losing couldnt be considered. You had been pushed by jealousy.
There is always something occurring, always some controversy, consistently great objectives. It was a game you would you never become excited about look forward to because there was a lot at stake.
That is right up with all the greatest games of the year. You had great players on both sides that could do special things no matter how well you defended like this in games, you knew a slice of brilliance can turn the game.
In case you could get a success, whether it was at home or at Old Trafford, then you knew that it was a enormous match to win. You always want to be the very best, and you have that rivalry and I do not think that it will ever change if you are so close to each other. We all state before the match that it is only three factors, but we all know its not, theres more rivalry than that.
Eric Cantona revealed Manchester United exactly what they have been missing as he returned by a nine-month suspension against Liverpool. The Frenchman set up Nicky Butt for the opening goal two minutes into his return and, after Robbie Fowler switched the match on its head with goals either side of half-time, Cantona established Uniteds saviour again, coolly converting a penalty before leaping up on the stanchion in one of the most iconic celebrations of their Premier League era.
Manchester United have been awarded their rudest of awakenings as their arch rivals humiliated them to breathe life. Even a first-half Cristiano Ronaldo penalty looked to have set United on their way, however Fernando Torres tormented Nemanja Vidic to acquire degree before Steven Gerrard place them in front on the stroke of. And things went from bad to worse to its winners as a sumptuous Fabio Aurelio free-kick, moments after Vidic has been disregarded, and an Andrea Dossena lob sealed a Liverpool success.
A first-half header and a gorgeous complete from Dimitar Berbatov place Manchester United at Old Trafford into a penalizing two-goal lead within an hour, but Liverpool was moved by two Steven Gerrard strikes at the space of six minutes to within touching distance of the improbable point. That was before Berbatov had the last word, going into a winner since he became the first United participant to score a hat-trick from Liverpool.
Arguably the lowest second of David Moyes ill-fated tenure at Old Trafford, Steven Gerrard scored two penalties and overlooked a third after Nemanja Vidics second-half dismissal, however Luis Suarez affirmed the absolute most comprehensive of successes late as Liverpool set their sights on the name.
