Norman Whiteside, pictured here with Ian Rush, used to relish clashes with Liverpool.
His record against them, with United, reads as follows:
(appearances (subs) / goals)
Division One: 11 (1) / 3
All competitions: 16 (1) / 4
"Van Persie has done brilliantly and United have just got this knack about scoring at the right time. Even I was doubting it would happen last weekend but, hopefully, we should be okay now for qualifying for the next round of the FA Cup."
