Torres Helps Liverpool Stop the Rot

Kop hero Torres celebrates opener against United

Fernando Torres returned to lead Liverpool's attack against their arch rivals Man Utd. After missing the last 2 games due to a groin injury, "El Nino" was back and scored the opener on the 65th minute. Ghosting past Vidic and latching onto Benayoun's through ball & then holding off the off-form England international, Ferdinand to blast past Van der Saar.

United then pulled off Scholes & Berbatov to make way for former Kop hero Owen & Nani to try to chase the game.

Owen had a glorious chance to get a 1 on 1 with Reina before he was cruely dragged down by Carragher. He only got a yellow card for the offence.

Then, at the other half, Vidic, who was also having an off day was sent off after a second booking for a similar offence after Kuyt bumped into him on his way to goal.

During injury time, Mascherano was sent off for a second bookable foul.

Then, David N'gog finished off a second goal for Liverpool to make it 2-0 after rounding off Van der Saar after United left their rear guard open after pusing up for an equaliser.

After the match, Rafa had this to say "I have said before, our players are good players so when people talk about our squad I always say the same thing - if you have four or five players injured it would be a problem for anyone".
Meanwhile, Sir Alex Ferguson, being sportmanlike & gentleman as he is said "All in all, Liverpool were the better team. They created more chances and were better than us on the day. With the performance level of Liverpool, they deserved their victory".

Fernando Torres added "We knew we needed to win to stay in the title race and we're definitely in it now".
