Over the years, two super-powers have grown in the North West of England's elite football. During the 70s and 80s Liverpool were the undisputed kings of the country, sweeping all before them both at home and abroad.

In the following two decades, Manchester United usurped them as they pegged back and finally overtook Liverpool's record league title haul. A European Cup or two along the way has also established the Red Devils as one of the world's major clubs, though they still trail Liverpool's tally of wins in both established European competitions.

Matches between the two domestically are often heated, passionate affairs, more often than not resulting in flared tempers and wielded cards—of both colours.

Last season, a limp Reds display at Old Trafford saw United cruise into a two-goal lead before some set-piece heroics drew the teams level, but United took a deserved three points in the end.

It was a different story at Anfield as the rejuvenated Reds took the spoils with a polished and dominant display, thanks in no small part to the two players featured in the picture above, Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt.

Next weekend, the two giants clash again in the first meeting of the new Premier League season.

Here are Liverpool's top six players who have made a good habit out of scoring against one of the club's biggest enemies—the Reds' Weapons of Manc Destruction.
