Liverpool's team during its first season, 1892–93

Liverpool Football Club is an English association football club based in Liverpool, Merseyside, which competes in the top tier of English football, for the 2013–14 season. The club was formed in 1892 following a disagreement between the board of Everton and club president John Houlding, who owned the club's ground, Anfield. The dispute over rent resulted in Everton leaving Anfield for Goodison Park, which left Houlding with an empty stadium. Not content for his ground to lay idle, he created his own club: Liverpool.[1] Liverpool joined the Lancashire League on their foundation before the 1892–93 season. They ended their inaugural season as league champions,[2] and were elected to The Football League soon afterwards. The club remained in The Football League until 1992, when its First Division was superseded as English football's top level by the newly formed Premier League.[3]

Liverpool's first team have competed in a number of nationally and regionally contested leagues, and its record against each club faced in these competitions is listed below. The team that Liverpool have met most in league competition is Everton, against whom they have contested 189 league matches; having drawn 60 of these, Everton are also the side Liverpool have tied with most in league competition. The team most often beaten by Liverpool in league competition are Aston Villa; the Anfield club have beaten them 84 times out of 178 meetings. Manchester United have recorded the most league victories over Liverpool, with 63 wins
