March 21st 2010: #ManchesterUnited
on Match-Day 31 of the 2009/10 #PremierLeague
It was a tale of 2 contrasting seasons for these 2 fierce rivals, just 12 months earlier, #LFC
were battling it out, neck and neck for the Premier League title; in March 2010 however, the defending champions #United
were a point behind league leader's Chelsea, while #TheReds
were languishing in 6th place in what was set to be Rafa #Benitez
final season with the club.
Recent history would be in the Spaniards favour however, with Liverpool winning each of the last 3 games between the two sides, including a 4-1 destruction job of #SirAlexFerguson
's side in March 2009! Moreover, a win for the visitors would have brought them into 5th place, and just 4 points shy of 4th placed Tottenham Hotspur. For #TheRedDevils
, revenge and 1st place were on the agenda; especially with Chelsea not playing until later that afternoon.
While the form book favoured the home side, it was Liverpool who took a 5th minute lead courtesy of Fernando #Torres
, with what was #ElNino
's 4th league goal in as many games! In what was a showcase of 2 of the league's most prolific marksmen; Wayne #Rooney
's fantastic season continued with what was also his 4th league goal in as many games in the 12th minute to make it 1-1!
The game would be decided on the hour mark when #ParkJiSung
's strike made it 2-1 to #ManUtd
, and ultimately secure the 3 points to move back to the summit of the division with 7 games left to play!
