LIVERPOOL’S Super Cup win has sparked a debate with Manchester United fans over who is the most successful club in English football.
The Merseyside giants secured their 42nd major honour with a win over Chelsea – which appears to make them level with United in the record books.
Liverpool fans claimed the Super Cup victory has not just secured them silverware – but also bragging rights.
They have won the same amount of major honours as United, but have insisted the trophies won are more credible.
The Reds have won 18 league titles, seven FA Cups, six Champions League titles and three UEFA Cups.
And their penalty shootout win over Chelsea in Istanbul has made them the most successful English Super Cup history.
WHY MANCHESTER UNITED?
But United have disregarded the claims of Liverpool’s fans because they have won more trophies in total.
The Red Devils have won 20 domestic titles, 12 FA Cups, five league cups, three Champions Leagues and one UEFA Super Cup.
In total, they have won 66 – which is four more than Premier League rivals Liverpool.
Liverpool would only be the most successful English if United’s 21 Community Shield trophies were not included.
LATEST MAN UTD NEWS
The statistics prove that United are still the most successful in English football, but Liverpool fans still tried to mock their rivals.
Anfield veteran Jamie Carragher even took a cheeky swipe at former United defender Gary Neville on Twitter.
He tagged him in a post which read: “Liverpool 43 major honours. Most successful team in English football history. Didn’t take long to get back on our perch, did it.”
