Liverpool host rivals Manchester United in the UEFA Europa League last 16 first leg at Anfield this evening.
The match will shown live on BT Sport Europe where these clubs met for the first time in Europe.
The sides have met in 166 domestic league games, United are 67-55 ahead in terms of wins. United have won their last four Premier League fixtures against Liverpool since a humiliating 3-0 home defeat in March 2014.
Liverpool lost to Be?iktas on penalties in last year’s round of 32 and to FC Zenit at the same stage of their previous UEFA Europa League appearance in 2012/13. The 1973, 1976 and 2001 UEFA Cup winners last made it to the round of 16 in 2010/11, eliminating AC Sparta Praha before bowing out to SC Braga.
United, however, last competed in the UEFA Europa League in 2011/12, getting to the round of 16. The UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League is the only major UEFA trophy the Red Devils have not won.
Coverage starts at 7.15pm on BT Sport Europe and BT Sport Ultra HD with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App. Kick-off 8.05pm.
