The clash this weekend which pits the Reds against their bitter Manchester rivals on Sunday really needs no introduction. It's no secret that these two sides hate each other and every encounter has bought its fair share of brawls, red cards and controversy. 

And the encounter on Sunday sets to be no different as Red Devils fans have already ensured with a cheeky banner aimed at Liverpool's club legends. 


The banner reads "Sir Alex and Sir Matt", referring to United legends Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Matt Busby who were both knighted in recognition for their services to English Football.

However, in what can only be seen as a condescending dig at their rivals' own club legends, the bottom half of the banner reads "Bob & Bill" referring to Reds legends Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly who were *shock, horror* not knighted for their contributions to English football.


Regardless of United fans' dig, the real drama and excitement is sure to take place on Sunday both on, and off the Anfield pitch...
