Manchester United suffered the first defeat of the season at the hands of their arch rivals Liverpool. Even worse still was the fact that this defeat was suffered at Anfield, which is a place where United do not want to lose because of the bargaining rights.

This result meant that David Moyes was still searching for his first win against one of Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea in his managerial career. Manchester United only managed a dull0-0 draw against Chelsea in the home match last weekend. Liverpool were extremely good from the word go and they did not take long to take the lead.
