Liverpool v Manchester United launches new era

In the lunchtime kickoff at Anfield between Liverpool and Manchester United not only is it one of the biggest games of the season. "Sir Alex Ferguson" but it is also a year to the day that John W Henry and Fenway Sports Group completed their takeover of Liverpool FC.

The majority of the Liverpool fans were glad to see the back of Tom Hicks and George Gillett, the two Americans who promised so much but delivered so little, Rafa Benitez's Liverpool turned in some stellar performances including winning the Champions League, but the on-field successes were always matched, if not overshadowed, by off-field controversies. And when it became clear that Liverpool couldn't match the big three as a long-term business, in stepped Henry.

What followed was a series of footballing decisions that saw the replacement of Roy Hodgson by club legend Kenny Dalglish as new boss and the signing of Luis Suarez and the record sale of Fernando Torres.

As Liverpool approach a year under John W Henry and FSG's stewardship off the field, lets measure how the Anfield side has improved on the field against the Champions Manchester United.
