Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United have dealt a major blow to Liverpool’s Champions Premier League hopes. The Merseyside giants lost at home after a stellar performance from Juan Mata. The little Spaniard scored two fantastic goals in the 2 – 1 victory at Anfield.

manchester united beats liverpool premium league soccer 2015

The former Chelsea midfielder has immortalized himself in the hearts of Old Trafford faithful after netting one of the most spectacular goals of the season and that too at the home of their fiercest rivals. Liverpool were unbeaten in their last five league games and were tipped to finish in top four. But Brendan Rodgers’ men had no answers to United’s attack on Sunday. Steven Gerrard got his marching orders within a minute after being substituted after the break. The Liverpool skipper lost his cool and stamped on Anders Herrera’s shin. This blunder by the outgoing legend affected the outcome of the match as Liverpool were trailing by only one goal and after being reduced to ten men they were automatically pressurized by the opponents. United were successful in picking up three points at one of the most difficult stadiums in England. The momentum is now on their side as they have already defeated two of the contenders for the European spot in successive match weeks. The 20-time English champions are fourth on the table, five points ahead of Liverpool.
