Man Utd 3-0 Liverpool Highlights
Manchester United outclassed 10-man Liverpool to move six points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Wes Brown put United ahead from Wayne Rooney’s cross before Liverpool’s hopes were hit when Javier Mascherano was sent off for dissent before the break. Some great saves by Pepe Reina kept the visitors in the game but he was at fault when Cristiano Ronaldo headed home United’s second from a corner. Nani’s fine finish into the top corner completed an emphatic win for United. The win strengthens United’s position as leaders ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Chelsea later on Sunday, but the talking point after this match will be Mascherano’s dismissal. The Argentine midfielder, who had been booked early on for a wild challenge on Paul Scholes, foolishly chose to continue an argument that his team-mate Fernando Torres had started with referee Steve Bennett.
