Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool: Berbatov x 3

“Manchester United threw away another two-goal lead – but a Dimitar Berbatov hattrick saved them. Sir Alex Ferguson went with a 4-4-2 – the first time he has done this in a ‘big’ game since Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over United last season. John O’Shea moved to right-back to replace Gary Neville. Roy Hodgson went for Fernando Torres upfront alone at the top of a compact side. Raul Meireles was the link player, with Steven Gerrard deeper in midfield. Joe Cole made his return on the left side of midfield.” (Zonal Minute)

Berbatov treble inspires United
“Sir Alex Ferguson was indebted to the “genius” of Dimitar Berbatov after the Bulgarian’s brilliant hat-trick floored Liverpool at Old Trafford. Every single member of the United side had need to thank Berbatov at the end after they had tossed away a two-goal advantage against Merseyside opposition for the second weekend running, only for the former Tottenham man to net the winner six minutes from time.” (ESPN)

Match Of The Week: Manchester United 3-2
“Manchester United vs Liverpool. Aon vs Standard Chartered. Nike vs Adidas. The warm, sticky smell of testosterone and hubris hangs large in the air this afternoon for this match, but all is not well at either Old Trafford or Anfield. Manchester United are still unbeaten since the start of the season, but they are a curiously unsatisfactory team this season so far.” (twohundredpercent)

Dimitar Berbatov’s hat-trick halts Liverpool’s spirited recovery
“Dimitar Berbatov has so far been taking personal responsibility for Manchester United’s Premier League campaign. Liverpool had come back to draw level after being 2-0 down but with five minutes left the striker climbed to meet a John O’Shea cross and head the winner. He has now scored in four of his club’s five league matches to date.” (Guardian)
