Liverpool 2 -1 United
Brown Rio Vida Evra
Anderson Scholes Carrick
Rooney Berbatov Tevez
"Ok, we will lose this match" That's what I murmered to myself when we scored after 3 minutes. United, like Berbatov, started brightly but faded throughout the first half. In fact during the second half I kept asking myself, 'Did SAF replace Berba?' He was completely out of the match! But it was his first game with United and I believe he didn't train an awful lot with his new team mates so let's just give the man a chance, afterall he did supply Tevez with a fine assist after 3 minutes.
United committed TWO many mistakes. No, I don't have a spelling mistake. Out of all mistakes United committed, two of them cost us the game. When VDS punched the ball against Brown, with the latter committing an own goal and the mistake by Giggs when he tried to shield the ball into a goal kick when he could have just cleared it into a corner.
September the 13th was surely an awful day for United. Carrick got injured, Nemanja sent off and the worst of all, losing against the Scouse for the first time in 4 years. Let them celebrate but it's too early to be opening champagne bottles, United had gathered 2 points last year after 3 matches and went on to win the league. This year we managed to get 4 points, I'll take last year's success any time, even if we have to lose against Liverpool at anfield!
Final Verdict, United just weren't good enough after the 20 minute mark. Liverpool deserve this win. Their second most glorious moment in the last 17 years, just behind winning the Champions League.
