Fixture: Premier League
Final score: 2-1
United's greatest come-form-behind victory this season has to be their 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League.
Not only do you have to consider the rivalry and hatred between these two clubs, we also had the Hillsborough tragedy fresh for Liverpool fans and the Patrice Evra-Luis Suarez incident to think about, also. Simply put, Liverpool had a lot to play for.
Jonjo Shelvey was sent off in the first half for a tackle on Jonny Evans—which only made the Merseyside club more determined—and they would eventually take the lead through Steven Gerrard just after half time.
But the Red Devils would not lie down and a phenomenal goal from defender Rafael Da Silva on his wrong foot leveled the scores midway through the second half.
United were then awarded—albeit controversially—a penalty for a foul on Antonio Valencia with just ten minutes to go. The tension was there, the pressure was there, and Robin van Persie drove the ball home to record an emphatic victory for United.
There are few things better than beating Liverpool in the eyes of Manchester United. Coming from behind to do it? Well that just makes it all the more sweeter.
What has been United's best comeback victory this year?
