As the EFL quarter finals take place this week, one tie has thrown up an English football classic: Liverpool vs Leeds United.
This Lancashire/Yorkshire affair is steeped in iconic history and memorable encounters, and is a fixture fans on both sides truly look forward to.
From an early 4-3 thriller in 1933, to an FA Cup final encounter in 1965 – not to mention some feisty Charity Shields in 1974 and in 1992 – this emphatic game has always been one to watch out for.
After Leeds’ relegation from the top flight in 2004, there has been only one meeting: a rather dull League Cup tie in 2009 in which the Reds won 1-0 at Elland Road.
Before this the two clubs used to go hammer-and-tong against each other on a regular basis, conjuring up some memorable clashes.
Here, we’ve come up with five of the best from the Premier League era to look back on as one of English football’s greatest rivalries gets the spotlight once more. Hit the navigation buttons below to advance through pages!
Leeds 1-0 Liverpool, Aug 1995
Perhaps the greatest goal ever scored in this fixture occurred on this balmy, late August evening. Billed as the tale of two strikers in Tony Yeboah and Stan Collymore, it was the former who stole the headlines.
His thunderous volley early in the second half secured the three points for Howard Wilkinson’s men as the Reds just couldn’t find a way through.
The Ghanaian’s strike is still one of the Premier League’s greatest ever goals.
