Manchester United vs Liverpool: Premier League classics from Sky Sports Vault

Since Manchester United and Liverpool prepare to renew their rivalry on Super Sunday, we have a trip down memory lane to revisit some of those iconic games of the timeless Premier League fixture…
This match has to have fire, must possess thunder. There may be pulls, however there has to be episode. You cannot let those games drift. This game felt somewhat different because of what was at stake, losing could not be considered. Jealousy drove you.
There was always something happening, always a controversy, consistently great objectives. It was a game you would you never get excited about look forward to since there was too much at stake.
This is right up there with the greatest games of the year. You had good players on either side which could do special things regardless of how well you defended such as this in games, you knew the match can turn.
If you could find a victory, whether it was in the home or in Old Trafford, you knew that it was a massive game to win. When you are so close to each other youve got that competition, and you always want to be the best and I do not think it will actually change. All of us state before the game that it is just 3 factors, but all of us know it is not, theres more competition than this.
Eric Cantona showed Manchester United exactly what they have been missing since he returned from your nine-month suspension against Liverpool. The Frenchman set up Nicky Butt for its starting goal two minutes into his return also, after Robbie Fowler switched the game on its head with goals either side of half-time, Cantona proved Uniteds saviour again, coolly converting a punishment before leaping up on the stanchion in one of their most iconic parties of the Premier League era.
Because them humiliated to breathe into their Premier League title 26, manchester United were given their rudest of awakenings. A Cristiano Ronaldo punishment appeared to have set United on their way, but Fernando Torres tormented before Steven Gerrard put them in front on the stroke of half-time in the penalty spot Nemanja Vidic to find amount. And after Vidic was disregarded, things went from Fabio Aurelio free-kick, and an adventurous Andrea Dossena lob sealed a famous Liverpool success.
A first-half header along with a gorgeous complete from Dimitar Berbatov put Manchester United in Old Trafford into a deserved two-goal lead inside an hour, however Liverpool was moved by 2 Steven Gerrard strikes at the space of half an hour to within touching distance of an unlikely point. This was until Berbatov had the final word, as he became the first United player to evaluate a hat-trick from Liverpool, going in a winner.
Arguably the smallest minute of David Moyes ill-fated tenure at Old Trafford, Steven Gerrard scored two penalties and overlooked a third after Nemanja Vidics second-half dismissal, but Luis Suarez confirmed the most comprehensive of victories late on as Liverpool set their sights on the title.
