David Moyes had never won a game at Anfield, and he continued this streak with United today, as the Red Devils slumped to a 1-0 loss courtesy of a goal from Sturridge on the 3rd minute itself for Liverpool following a corner kick.
United were totally out of the game in the first half, with Mignolet in the Liverpool goal not being troubled, and United players being frustrated for not being able to link up properly, no solutions being provided to each other, and continuously harassed as well by the Liverpool players whenever they were in possession. However, the Red Devils returned with better intentions in the second half, yet failed to really make an impact with RvP again being a shadow of himself of the pitch just like against Chelsea, Welbeck not clicking well with him in front, and Mignolet was really tested only on the 78th minute when Nani’s long range effort forced him to a diving save, but nothing much to do all game. De Gea on the other hand as well was not much troubled after the opener, only for Sterling to test him again in added time as the former palmed the shot over the bar.
Moyes is being stated by the media to be chasing 5 midfielders (Herrera, Fellaini, De Rossi, Modric and Gundogan) before the transfer window closes tomorrow night, and let’s hope he does manage to bring in a couple of quality signings by then, since United’s central midfield today was almost invisible, failing to link up properly with the front players, while Liverpool on their behalf have already sent a strong signal to the other teams, 3 wins in 3 games played, although all 3 with only 1-0 scorelines, and still missing Suarez from action.
