With so much at stake for the Champions, all eyes were cast on the early kick off on ‘Grand Slam Sunday’ as Manchester United took on Liverpool at Old Trafford.

A rare goal from Wes Brown set United on their way before Javier Mascherano saw a second yellow for continuous back chat towards the referee with half time not even reached.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal against Liverpool after heading in a corner and Nani finished the scoring off a couple of minutes later after cutting inside and unleashing a fierce drive past Pepe Reina.

One of United’s key players was Michael Carrick, with the playmaker proving a crucial part in nullifying Liverpool’s attacking threat, and he said after the match he thoroughly enjoyed himself out on the pitch as his side opened up a 6 point gap to Arsenal and maintained their 5 point lead on Chelsea, who are now up into second.
