Man­chester Uni­ted 1 Liver­pool 0, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Foot­ball Lea­gue Fir­st Di­vi­sion, Sep­tember 13, 1969. Man­chester Uni­ted won their third ga­me of the sea­son by beat­ing Liver­pool at ho­me.

Fol­low­ing a goal­less fir­st ha­lf at Old Traf­ford, Man­chester Uni­ted de­feated Bill Shankly´s Liver­pool by 1-0 cour­tesy of a goal from Scot­land wing­er Wil­lie Mor­gan. Al­though The An­field­ers dom­in­ated large parts of the fir­st pe­riod, the vis­it­ing si­de were not able to find the back of the net. Man­chester Uni­ted came back much strong­er af­ter the re­sump­tion of ac­tion and took the ad­vant­age when North­ern Ire­land in­ter­na­tion­al Geor­gie Best rose to nod a high ball onto Mor­gan who drove it ho­me nine min­utes pa­st the hour ma­rk. The Liver­pool play­ers tried vali­antly to get them­selves an equal­iser, but The Reds of Man­chester ma­naged to hold on to se­cure a nar­row 1-0 vic­tory.
