Liverpool and Manchester United will take their bitter rivalry on the road when they trade tackles in the International Champions Cup.

Both sides canceled each other out when they met in 2014, few weeks after the appointment of Louis Van Gaal at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were 3-1 winners over Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool side.

The last time the Premier League’s two biggest rivals went head-to-head in Miami, in what was there first friendly in recent time, Liverpool were still fresh from narrowly missing out on the PL title in 2013/14 season.

Four years on, Jurgen Klopp’s men are set to get one ahead of their Premier League rivals before the campaign kick-off proper.

The last time they met in 2014, A Steven Gerrard penalty was canceled by Wayne Rooney just a few minutes after racing to the lead.

Juan Mata’s deflected effort put the Red Devils in the lead before Jesse Lingard compounded their rival’s woes with two minutes left on the clock to hand United the ICC trophy.

However, it may be difficult for Jose Mourinho’s side to replicate that feat as most of his star players are yet to return for the pre-season training.
