The Red Devils have enjoyed a number of memorable successes at the home of Merseyside-based rivals down the years, but victories have dried up of late

Meetings between Manchester United and Liverpool are always special occasions, with there much more than three points or cup progress at stake when two arch-rivals lock horns in competitive action.

For long periods the Red Devils reigned supreme in the north west, with Sir Alex Ferguson overseeing an era of dominance that delivered regular successes at Old Trafford and Anfield.

The tide has started to turn in more recent seasons, though, with the red half of Merseyside now a tricky place to visit for any opponent – even if recent form has dipped a little. When did United last collect three points from such a trip? GOAL takes a look…

When did Manchester United last win at Anfield vs Liverpool?

The Reds have a useful habit of frustrating United on home soil, with some six years having passed since the Red Devils last made the short journey back to Manchester with three points to show for their efforts.

United's misery on Merseyside continued in Erik ten Hag's debut season at the helm as Liverpool beat their arch-rivals 7-0 on March 5, 2023. The final result marked the biggest-ever margin of victory in the history of the fixture across home and away encounters.

The Red Devils' last Premier League win at Anfield came on January 17, 2016, when Wayne Rooney grabbed the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory.

How many games are Liverpool unbeaten against Manchester United at Anfield?

Since that meeting with United shortly after the turn of the year in 2016, Liverpool have come a long way in a short period of time.

Klopp had only been at the Reds’ helm for a matter of months when seeing Rooney net a match-winning effort at Anfield, with the German appointed as successor to Brendan Rodgers in October 2015.

Since then, he has overseen Champions League and Premier League title triumphs, while the current campaign has delivered Carabao Cup success as part of what could still be a historic quadruple bid.

What's more, Klopp has only suffered four defeats to United during his iconic tenure, through 17 fixtures, and has six victories to his name.

However, one of those losses came at Old Trafford earlier on in the current season when goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford sealed a 2-1 victory.

Back on home turf, though, Liverpool will hope to keep their rivals at arm's length and pick up a win that could be pivotal if they are to finish in the top four and qualify for Champions League football.
