Manchester United will head into their Europa League round of 16 second leg tie on Thursday needing to overturn Liverpool’s two goal advantage.

The Reds are in a difficult position after last week’s disappointing opener in which Jurgen Klopp’s men were the dominant side and deserving of their victory.

United now need to score at least twice to keep the tie alive, but will need even more goals if Liverpool can score an elusive away goal- something Louis van Gaal’s men could not manage in the first leg.

However, the Reds have found themselves in even more precarious positions in the last couple of seasons, and have always put up a fight to remain in European competition- even whilst David Moyes was in charge of the club.

Whether the Reds can complete an unlikely comeback remains to be seen, but fans can at least look to past results for hope against Liverpool.

Let’s take a look at United’s last five European second leg ties:
