Red rivals: The 2000s
Head-to-head, Liverpool actually had the better of United in the 2000s - their 2-0 win on 25 October 2009 tipping the balance in their favour over 23 games in all competitions. But when you compare silverware, it's a very different story...

“Although Liverpool spoilt the party by defeating us a few times at Old Trafford, and beating us in the League Cup final in Cardiff in 2003 and even winning the European Cup again in 2005, the claim to be ‘back on their perch’ rings a bit hollow, as the number of their title-less years could move to 20 this season. The nightmare of that day in March at Old Trafford last season [the 4-1 home defeat, 14 March 2009] was somewhat eased by lifting the title for the third year in succession and equalling Liverpool's record of 18 league championships.
