Liverpool 1 Vs Manchester United 0


Ex Blues manager David Moyes has never enjoyed a Premier League victory at Anfield, having lost five and drew six and it never looked like that record was going to improve today.

It was a fitting victory for the Reds as Anfield celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of the legendary Bill Shankly.

Brendan Rodgers will settle for fourth place this season and the early evidence hints at great promise, with suspended striker Luis Suarez still to return.

The mancs were without Wayne Rooney after he suffered a head injury in training, just as he had returned to the team, Moyes' mood will not have improved when Liverpool took the lead in the third minute.

Ashley Young's ill-advised attempt to dribble out of danger ended in a corner and when Steven Gerrard's delivery was headed goalwards by Daniel Agger, Sturridge deflected it home from virtually on the line.

From that point on the Reds pressure and high-tempo passing game increased United's frustration and it threatened to boil over on the stroke of half-time when Van Persie, who had already been booked, was involved in angry verbal exchanges with several Liverpool players, particularly Gerrard.

United began with more purpose in the early part having more possession but a sign of the effectiveness of Liverpool's defence was that it took the mancs 76 minutes to force Mignolet into any serious action, when he dived to punch away a shot.

Van Persie wasted United's best chance with three minutes left when he was played in by substitute Hernandez but couldn’t find the target. Apart from that it was a comfortable afternoon for Simon Mignolet, who has yet to concede a Premier League goal since his £9m summer move from Sunderland.
