Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool – Premier League – 13th January 2013

Robin Van Persie was once again the key to Man Utd registering yet another deserved victory, this time against the old enemy Liverpool.

The Dutchman netted a classy first goal on 19 minutes, firing home from a Patrice Evra cross before whipping in the free-kick which resulted in Nemanja Vidic nodding home after the break.

Sub Daniel Strurridge did get a goal back for the Reds soon after United’s second but for large periods of the game, the Merseysiders were second best.

Despite a nervy last few minutes for the Red Devils, they weathered that mini-storm to secure all three points and stay in a comfortable pole position at the top of the table.  Liverpool, on the other hand, can take heart in their second-half rally as the Brendan Rodgers’ era moves on.

    Was there ever any doubt?

  2. Rob says:

    A draw would have been a fair result, Liverpool were awful first half, dominant second, Man Utd were nothing special first or second half.

  3. Dave says:

    Liverpool weren’t particularly dominant except for the last 10ish minutes, United were well on top for a good half hour in the first half no contest

  4. ajm300 says:

    …a period of “dominance” which produced no shots on target or required any saves. 2-1 was flattering.
