Liverpool may have dominated this match, but United managed
to snatch all three points at Anfield.

There is always a unique build-up for one of the more classic
rivalries between the two most successful clubs in England.

Unfortunately the game did not live up to the hype, as Louis
van Gaal’s “boring” football was out on show again.

Despite sharing an equal amount of position with their
opposition, United only managed one shot on target.

Liverpool’s midfield worked overtime to break down the
United defence, only to be stopped by David De Gea who was a fortress behind

It’s been a regular story for Jurgen Klopp’s men, wasting
opportunities and paying the ultimate price.

To be fair Liverpool should have won today, but it was the
Captain Wayne Rooney who pinched the points in front of a full stadium of frustrated
Liverpool supporters.

Rooney has found his feet again, after going through a dry
spell earlier in the season. 2016 seems to be kicking off to the perfect start
for the record goal scorer, who loves nothing more than to score against his
biggest rivals.

This result is an indication of how unpredictable the
Premier League has been. United sit only seven points from top dogs Leicester
and Arsenal.


The Olyroos have kept their Olympic hopes alive after
defeating Vietnam 2-0 in Doha0.

Brisbane Roars’ forward combination James Donachie and Jamie
Maclaren both scored from corners.

The Olyroos will need to win against Jordan to assure
Olympic qualification.
