Founded in June 1892, Liverpool FC has grown steadily to become one of the most successful football clubs in England. They have not left the top flight of English football since 1962, when they were promoted from the then Second Division back to the First. During this time they have expanded their trophy cabinet exponentially, frequently winning the most desired silverware, such as the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League.

Adding some spice to the rivalry between Liverpool and Everton, it was actually Everton who first played at Liverpool’s homeground, Anfield, before the Everton committee had a dispute with the blub president and land owner at Anfield, John Houlding. Houlding founded Liverpool – first called Everton FC and Athletic Grounds Ltd – and they started playing at Anfield, forcing Everton to relocate to Goodison Park where they remain to this day. The name change to Liverpool FC came as the FA refused to recognize the club as Everton. Liverpool saw early success as they won the Lancashire League in their first season, gaining promotion to the Second Division which they won immediately, before winning the then First Division in 1901 and 1906.

Liverpool are currently under management of Brendan Rodgers, who has been at the club since June 2012 when he left Swansea City. Liverpool saw some improvement in their first season under Rodgers, finishing higher in the league than the previous season, despite a surprising 3-2 loss to Oldham Athletic in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Rodgers was then named Premier League Manager of the month twice in the 2013-14 season, for winning their first three league games of the season, and then for winning all five of their March fixtures, putting them at the top of the table. In May 2014 Rodgers signed a new contract with Liverpool, tying him to the club until 2018.
