Manchester United beat Liverpool in FA Cup 3rd Round. It’s always nice to win against the kop … Red Devils were ahead within a few minutes after kick-off. Liverpool defender Daniel Agger fouled Dimitar Barbatov inside the 18 yards box. Although it was a soft touch, Referee Howard Webb pointed to the spot, and it was really harsh decision for Liverpool. United Veteran Ryan Giggs, step up to take the penalty and cooly slotted to the right side of the net.
Red Devils had a good game although Liverpool showed some impressive displays before Gerrard had been sent off. But Liverpool were in troubled when Captain Gerrard tackled Carrick with his both feet above the ground and Howard Webb gave a marching order.
Johny Evans’ header from left corner beat everyone but the upright. It was a massive relief for the Kops Pepe Reina was the hero for Liverpool that he saved many goal-mouth incidents from United. Later in the second half, Ferguson introduced former Liverpool’s hero Michael Owen to kill the game. Although Owen didn’t scored against his former team, he’s so impressive with his movements and attacking plays. He played in a deep position and made some impressive movements in front of England Manager Fabio Capello. If he keeps playing like this, Fabio Capello will select him for upcoming games for England.
I saw some positive signs in Liverpool Team under Kenny Daglish … ! But it’s too bad Roy Hodgson didn’t get enough time …. Nowadays, Football clubs are crazy and they are not patient with Managers.
Overall, it was a deserved victory for United and Ferguson.
