Liverpool beat Manchester United 4 – 1 to keep there title hopes alive

As a Manchester United fan, i am completely distraught by the result and more so by the margin. It was a must win game for Liverpool and to be honest, the played very well and Torres was absolutely top class today. Gerrard and Torres, who have been vital for Liverpool were on top form while for Manchester United, there top defender Vidic has a poor game. I thought it might turn out to be a poor afternoon for Liverpool as Manchester United opened the scoring with Ronaldo converting the penalty after Reina has fouled Park in the box. But instead of holding onto that lead, United allowed Liverpool to come into the game after that costly mistake from Vidic and United never looked comfortable afterwards. read more »
