Here are my top 5 strikes from the Merseysiders
John Arne Riise

Fabian Barthez was on the receiving end of another cracker, this time from a young Steven Gerrard from 2001.
Probably the most loved Liverpool striker after Fowler, Fernando Torres scored a magical goal after wrestling his way past Rio Ferdinand. Just when Liverpool needed an inspiration, the golden boy from Spain sent two United legends packing and lifted the Anfield roof with a world class finish.
All of Old Trafford will remember when Schmeichel was left startled by Fowler’s scorcher from an acute angle.
