Come Sunday October 24th, the football world will be agog as 20-time Premier League winners Manchester United will welcome Merseyside outfit Liverpool in a Matchday Nine domestic encounter at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been uninspiring thus far, coupled with their inconsistent displays, performances and results. They come into this fixture having been winless in their last three matches and they suffered a terrible 4-2 defeat away to LEICESTER City at the King Power Stadium last time out, while Liverpool still remains unbeaten in the league.
However, Manchester United can take great pride and draw confidence from their midweek come from behind 3-2 victory over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League, which will serve as the perfect morale booster ahead of this weekend's feisty clash.
Star man Cristiano Ronaldo will be making a return to action for Manchester United against Liverpool for the first time in 12 years, and he will be looking to improve his record against the Merseysiders. The 36 year-old Portuguese international who was brought in from Italian Serie A outfit Juventus, has already scored six goals in eight matches for the Red Devils and will be their go-to guy for the goals.
Below, we shall examine Cristiano Ronaldo's record against Liverpool....
This will be the 13th time that Cristiano Ronaldo will be facing Liverpool in his career. He has previously featured 12 times against the Merseyside outfit - nine of which were in the colors of Manchester United jersey, while the other three occasions happened when he was a player for Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.
He has won five matches, drawn two and lost two against Liverpool while he was with Manchester United, while at Real Madrid, he has won all three matches he played against the Reds - the last time being the 2018 UEFAChampions League Final, in which Real Madrid triumphed 3-1.
Overall, Cristiano Ronaldo's record against Liverpool has seen him play 12 games. He has won eight times, drawn twice and lost twice against the Reds. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored three goals against Liverpool in his career and he will want to improve on that stat.
