And the English top flight is coming back with a bang in the form of the North West Derby – which kicks off on Monday night.
It remains, arguably, the most hotly-anticipated fixture on the Premier League calendar, combining high-quality football, controversial refereeing decisions, intense atmospheres and dirty tackles in a way not many other matches in English football can.
Liverpool and United fans aren’t exactly on the best of terms – in fact, quite the opposite.
