English football’s most successful clubs meet on Monday evening when Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool host José Mourinho’s Manchester United at Anfield.

Liverpool are up there with Barcelona, Bayern Munich (also on five), AC Milan (seven) and Real Madrid (11) in the European Cup/Champions League roll of honour. However the Alex Ferguson era now leaves United with the bragging rights when it comes to league titles.
