1-0 Daniel Sturridge 4'
Good win for us. Happy to see us defend an early-goal lead throughout the match, other seasons we would've conceded. Needed to work on keeping the ball in 2nd half though. Skrtel and Agger were fantastic, kept Welbeck and RVP quiet. Now that we have Sakho and Toure coming back from injury, it's going to be quite a CB dilemma since they are all quality.
Well played tbh enjoy your week at the top ;).
Sturridge is a goal magnet, like Inzaghi but better on the ball. Skirtel had one of his best games ever. Hendo is evolving into a valuable player. looking very solid defensively so far, with new signings the squad is very deep and talented. and no Suarez we should have a credible run for the top 4.
Lets win 1-0 all season!
would be hilarious if sturridge scores every liverpool goal and we win 1-0 all season. 38 goals, 38 wins & 114 points :D OK. time to get back to reality and get ready for liverpool to mess up big time.
What a pitiful midfield display by United. No support for our forwards. Making bad passes all day, giving the ball away cheaply. That had to be one of the worst games I've seen united in a while. If fellani is a replacement for cleverly ill be a pissed off fan
Carrick played like an amateur! Vidic and Ferdinand are both sloppy and Welbeck...why him? I'd choose Hernandez over him any day of the week! Midfielders were not working...Cleverly, Carrick, Valencia and Young...all dead and not a single one of them provide any meaningful chances for RVP and not threatening the goal themselves either! Welbeck was busy trying to break into goal himself and kinda forgotten that he and RVP are a 2 man strikers! Nani played well for the short time he was there and Hernandez IMO is a better sub-striker to RVP than Welbeck can ever be!
I personally think Welbeck is better used as a Winger. He has great pace and can really challenge defenders... just not the goal
Once again, Arsenal don't look like getting anywhere near the top this season*, so I'd love to see Liverpool win it. They look solid, at least so far. (*yes, even after our 1-0 win over Spurs a while ago)
How do you work out Arsenal don't like getting near the top? City beat by cardiff,lol. Yet westham beat them 2-0? Liverpool beating utd is massive. Chelsea i don't think are there yet. This season will be very close.
Sturridge is on fire! A very clinical finisher, just what Liverpool needed. And their defense has been rock solid so far
United could be in the same boat as my Arsenal with no eye popping signings. I cant believe that Moyes hasn't been able to sign a proper creative AM......Ozil could be good, hell even Kaka could be a short term solution to that problem.
decent match overall but to many 1-0 happening for my liking
looks like moyes doesnt learn from his mistakes. plays the same weak players against chelsea last week. young - useless. valencia back to his rinse and repeat. RVP - was he even playing after his failed over-head kick? giggs played horrible today as well. puts on hernandez and nani way to late. yes, we did miss rooney coz even for a forward, he does more midfield work than our actual midfielders. watching todays match, united will regret not signing any players. well done to liverpool. they deserved all 3 points after 90mins.
What's going on with Kagawa, i mean, why is he not playing?
moyes is a racist
He's top notch should be playing.
yeah, wtf is going on with him. united are dying for creativity. I'm hoping the otzil deal united isn't scuppered by a united bid.
On what planet are Welbeck, Giggs and Cleverly better than Hernandez, Nani and Kagawa?! even if the latter are just back from injury. How does Giggs still start? he's a legend yes but my god he needs to take a step back and retire gracefully. He should be coming on at the end of matches not starting and playing 70+ mins. Jesus. Congrats to Liverpool, when they get Suarez back they are in decent shape to really push on this season. Spurs need time to gel, Arsenal are always prone to injuries and haven't signed anyone (yet) United have Moyes who fears losing more than he craves winning, and tbh I'm not convinced on City yet with Pellegrini and Chelsea are pretty much the same as last year. It's gonna be very, very tight.
I see why Moyes started Welbeck, Giggs and Cleverly because the others have been out injured and people are forgetting what type of game it is against Liverpool. I thought Welbeck was our best player yesterday but I don't like seeing Carrick and Cleverly play together as they play the same type of football. I think Moyes need to look at dropping one of them for me its Cleverly and play Kagawa as he is more attacking minded and the perfect replacement for where Rooney would of played. I also think we are missing Raf at Right back to as he knows how to push forward. Im not panicking though we need to give Moyes time to work out the team and im glad he has not gone in and changed the team completely we need a winger for the left and Zaha should be given a chance to. I am not expecting up to win the league this year but I do want us to be in the top 3 come the end of the season and maybe a cup to. But people also need to remember Liverpool is never an easy game for United esp at Liverpool as they are always up for the game. Lets back the manager and give him time to settle in rather than become a club who gets on the managers back as soon as something dose not go right. We need to remember we have been spoilt over the last 26 years with SAF but we also need to remember SAF took a few years to get his 1st cup.
Moyes, get Kagawa back on the field, otherwise we could lose him back to Dortmund come the January transfer window.
Terrible game, made worse by a bad referee forcing no risk midfield play. Boring.
Utd are in for a rocky season. The reason they did so well last year was rvp, ferguson too of course. They looked hopeless at the back and not much creativity up front. Worrying times. Don't know why moyes play some giggs and young. I'd start hernandez too.
