It was 1881 that the red half of Manchester first faced off against the blue - though it was West Gorton (later City) hosting Newton Heath (later United).

Heath would win the game 3-0, in a match described by the Ashton Reporter as "pleasant". 

Not a term we'd use to define the following 168 meetings of what's become one of football's fieriest and most fractious rivalries.

But don't take our word for it - look at the facts, neatly assembled below by Ticketbis.

From goals to wins, points to titles, none of this is going to affect the bragging rights come final whistle Sunday.
