Liverpool Defeated Manchester Untied 4-1 in Premier League

(This entry was originally published on Sunday, March 15th, 2009)

It was a ‘do or die’ match for Liverpool. A defeat at the hands of leader Manchester Untied would have ended their title hope yesterday, but the Reds clinched a 4-1 inspirational victory over the host Untied, and thus, revitalizing their title hopes. Manchester United still holds a 4-point lead at the top of the table with a match in hand. With this victory, Liverpool moved to the second place in the league with 61 points from 29 games. Chelsea could catch Liverpool if they can win their home league fixture against Manchester City today.

This has been Liverpool’s first win at Old Trafford in five years and also first under manager Rafael Benitez. For United, the 4-1 margin has been their heaviest defeat since 1992 when they lost to Queens Park Ranger by the same margin. Manchester Untied took lead in the match when Cristiano Ronaldo scored from penalty in the first half. Fernando Torres took little time to bring out an equalizer for the visitors. Gerrard put Liverpool ahead in the match scoring from a penalty just before the half time.

Manchester United started off strongly in the second half with full of attacking intent, but they failed to score an equalizer. Rather, Liverpool scored the third goal thanks to Fabio Aurelio before Andrea Dossen made it 4-1. Manchester United is still in the right track to defend the premier league title, but the defeat by such a big margin against one of their fierce rivals might count on their confidence. Liverpool, on the other hand, seems to be full of confidence and seems to be in good shape to make an all out effort to clinch their first premier league title in 19 years.
