Manchester U 3 Liverpool 2

Sir Alex Ferguson

Man­chester Uni­ted 3 Liver­pool 2, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Septem­ber 19, 2010. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson ex­per­i­enced mixed emo­tions af­ter the 3-2 Sunday suc­cess ag­ainst Liver­pool at Old Traf­ford. Al­though Man­chester Uni­ted won the ga­me by 3-2 cour­tesy of a tre­ble from Di­m­it­ar Ber­batov they still squan­dered many op­por­tun­it­ies in front of goal.

Di­m­it­ar Ber­batov re­cor­ded two goals for Man­chester Uni­ted be­fore The An­field­ers hit back twice thro­ugh Ste­ven Ger­rard, on­ly for Mitko to grab a late win­ner for the ho­me si­de. But ac­cord­ing to Sir Al­ex Fer­guson, who had mixed feel­ings about the res­ult, Uni­ted should have won by a crick­et score. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “At 2-0 it could have be­en a crick­et score. Two-all was an ab­so­lute farce. It was a ga­me that we ab­so­lutely dom­in­ated and I was say­ing to my­self. So when it look­ed like end­ing 2-2, it would have be­en a trav­esty of a sco­reline.” Man­chester Uni­ted Te­am: Ed­win van der Sar, Pat­rice Ev­ra, John O’Shea, Jon­athan Evans, Ne­manja Vid­ic, Paul Scho­les, Dar­ren Fletch­er, Di­m­it­ar Ber­batov, Lu­is Nani, Way­ne Roo­ney, Ry­an Gig­gs.
