The Liverpool-Manchester United rivalry is the a rivalry between the two most successful clubs in English football. There had always been a rivalry between the two due to the historical inter-city rivalry, but it was exacerbated in the 1990s, a time when Liverpool began to fall and Manchester United started to rise again under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Matches between the two tend to be very heated affairs both on and off the pitch. Historically there has been trouble between the supporters regarding chants over both the Hillsborough disaster and the Munich air disaster, leading to pleas from the football clubs themselves to keep abuse away from the dead.
