Liverpool 2 - 0 United

Well, what can I say? I never expected United to get out of Anfield with the 3 points. Liverpool were never going to succumb to their 5th defeat in a row, a defeat which would have virtually ended Liverpool's title bid. With this win they are back with the challengers; it was too early to rule them out anyway.

As much as I hate Liverpool I've got to admit that they deserved their win. They won the midfield battle and at the front they managed to uncover a few cracks in our defence. Rio was very poor when he had faced Torres one on one with the latter scoring a cracking goal while Vidic who was OK managed to get himself sent off for two bookable challenges. The second challenge merited a straight red but the ref showed some mercy on the Serb international.

Carragher should have been sent off late in the game when he fouled Owen who could have scored from the resulting action but the ref, who dismissed Mascherano 2 minutes from time, wasn't interested in sending Carra off. Anyway nothing could excuse our poor performance today. Well done to Liverpool, now I expect to pick ourselves up and start thinking about the next couple of matches starting with Barnsley on Wednesday. C'mon United.
