Manchester United vs. Liverpool: 5 Greatest Wins at Old Trafford

Rio Ferdinand Impersonating Jaap Stam

Rio Ferdinand doesn't score many goals, but scoring the winner for Manchester United vs. Liverpool at Old Trafford is something he will always remember.

So will Gary Neville, who set off in the opposite direction to goad the Liverpool fans and received a £5,000 fine. Oh well, Liverpool's chief executive Rick Parry had previously been at the FA...

That 2006 win came in January but turned out to be significant. Although United didn't win the title, they did pip Liverpool into third place by one point.

The match was symptomatic of United's "never-say-die" spirit. Liverpool dominated the match from start to finish as United had a makeshift midfield of Ryan Giggs and John O'Shea. Eventually Darren Fletcher was moved into midfield, but Liverpool still looked to be the more likely winners.

Until the 90th minute, when Ferdinand leaped high to blast a header past Pepe Reina from Giggs' free kick.

It would also have been nice to include the 2-1 win in 1977 and especially the biggest win ever, 6-1, in 1928.

You may have your own choices to add. Each of these wins has a theme, but sometimes the circumstances at the time make a match memorable.

These selections are not listed in any particular order, so enjoy. And please suggest your own favourites.
