United Disappointing at Anfield
Liverpool`s 2-0 win over Manchester United rescued the Anfield club's season.
Alex Ferguson was again unhappy with the ref, claiming home fans had influenced referee Andre Marriner at key moments of the match. But not even Ferguson could deny that Liverpool merited a result that ended a damaging sequence of four successive defeats and lifted the pressure that had mounted on Benítez.
United are now two points behind Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table and Ferguson was unhappy about two incidents involving Jamie Carragher, the first when he challenged Michael Carrick inside the Liverpool area and then when he hauled former Anfield striker Michael Owen to the floor but was only booked.
Going down to 10 men didn`t help United`s cause, but in truth the game even at 1-0 was all but over.
