Fantastic performance and a great result by Liverpool against Ferguson’s United.
2-0, 2-0, 2-0!
What a great result against our biggest rivals, we played like men possessed for 95mins and deservedly beat Manchester’s finest.
We bossed the game from start to finish nullifying Utd for most of the game.
Credit must go to Rafa and the team for putting in such a great all-round performance and from defence to attack, we were brilliant all afternoon.
It was a return to the standards of last season with Jamie marshalling the backline, the midfield winning all the important battles and then the class of Fernando Torres in the 65th minute to take on a delightful through ball from Yossi Benayoun to lash the ball past Van Der Saar despite Ferdinand’s attention for his ninth goal in the League this season, the man is world class.
A special mention for that man Lucas, I have been his worst critic all along but today he was really good in breaking up play, getting his foot in and thwarting United’s attacks at every opportunity, alongside Mascherano these two men nullified Scholes and Carrick for most of the game and Leiva played the killer pass to sub Ngog for a well taken goal to finish the game off.
Other results were good for us today with Arsenal and Man City both drawing their matches to leave us in 5th in the League, six points behind Table-Toppers Chelsea.
So, the rot has stopped, we have rediscovered our form of last season, the vultures have disappeared so lets keep going and push on for Title number nineteen.
