Liverpool v Manchester United (UEL)

UEFA Europa League : Last 16 : 
Anfield, Liverpool : March 10th 2016

When the draw was made for the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League at the end of February, one tie would not only stand out to English football fans, but to the footballing world.

That is the impact any game played between Liverpool and Manchester United carries with it as millions around the world stop to see who will come out on top in this legendary fixture. 

Yet when the teams' names were read out one after the other, it signalled even more significance as it would provide the first meeting between the two clubs in European competition. Despite it not being played out in the Champions League however (the competition which both these clubs are expected to target each season), the tie would unquestionably still draw in fans of the game and likely deliver the competition's most watched game in the run up to a final.

The Big Number 9 couldn't miss the opportunity to be a part of this almighty fixture in some way and so we sent cameras along to Anfield on the first leg match day to take in the sights around the ground as the atmosphere built up to this much anticipated game.
