The Liliywhites famously made it through on away goals on that occasion, after a last-gasp Raheem Sterling goal was belatedly ruled out for offside amid wild City celebrations. It was an all-time classic game of football, and the late drama means it’s easy to forget that four goals were scored in the first 11 minutes.
Both teams looked impressive in pre-season and got off to a winning start in the Premier League last weekend. Whichever side you’re on, this could be a really entertaining game − and you can either watch it on TV or stream it. Here are the details.
