This clash of the north-west giants is in some ways the story of English football. They have won 38 top-flight titles, while the rest of the country’s combined efforts come to 78. And their sibling rivalry is centuries old. Separated by 33.3 miles of flat hinterland, England’s two biggest clubs provoke mutual loathing and haven’t conducted transfer business for 50 years, yet have more in common than not. Bound by suffering at Munich and Hillsborough, their greatest managers were Scottish, and both clubs enjoy huge match going support in the largely working-class cities they call home. These bitter rivals are more alike than they’d care to admit.
