During the Premier League era, we’ve travelled to City 22 times and have won 11, drawn three and lost eight of those clashes. The first meeting with our neighbours came in an FA Cup fixture in 1891 and, over the years, we’ve played them on 178 occasions. Of those encounters, the Reds have enjoyed the upper hand, winning 73, drawing 52 and losing 53. Last season we fell to a 3-1 defeat at the Etihad, but the previous term the Reds enjoyed one of the sweetest derby victories in recent years, coming from two goals behind to beat Pep Guardiola's side 3-2.
City enjoyed a successful season last year, winning the Premier League, plus the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. Pep Guardiola guided them to 98 points in the league, ensuring the Blues fended off title hopefuls Liverpool by a single point. They narrowly beat Chelsea on penalties in the final of the Carabao Cup and, a few months later, easily brushed aside Watford at Wembley to land the FA Cup.
