Classic Manchester United v Liverpool games

Premier League, January, 1994
If the entertainment value of Sunday's game comes even close to this six goal thriller, neutrals will be delighted. Anfield was in shock when after just 25 minutes United were in what seemed to be an unassailable lead at 3-0. Steve Bruce, Ryan Giggs and then a beautiful free-kick from left-back Dennis Irwin did the damage. But Liverpool responded in remarkable fashion. Nigel Clough, who did little during his time at Liverpool, scored two long range screamers before Neil Ruddock (pictured) completed a ludicrous comeback that made Anfield erupt. As amazing as the Liverpool's revival was, it wasn't enough to save manager Graeme Souness, who was sacked a month later.

Liverpool travel to Old Trafford this Sunday to face Manchester United in the Premier League.

It's early days in the league but a win for both teams would provide a timely boost. United have been held in their last couple of games while Roy Hodgson has had to defend the start to his tenure at Anfield.

Hopefully the match will prove an entertaining affair, but it'll have to go some way to match this selection of classic encounters
