Brendan Rodgers’ team go second in the Premier League after the victory thanks to two penalties from Steven Gerrard and a strike from Luis Suarez.

It was a controlled and confident performance from the Reds, who keep their dreams of winning the title alive.

There was a huge gulf in quality obvious throughout the 90 minutes, during which Liverpool kept a solid shape to contain any signs of Man United pressure.

With Gerrard cooly converting two penalties either side of half-time, but missing a third later on, Suarez did well to latch onto Daniel Sturridge‘s mis-hit shot and show composure to score Liverpool’s third past David de Gea with eight minutes left.

At the back, Simon Mignolet pulled off a heroic save from Wayne Rooney’s shot late in the first-half, which was quickly followed by Martin Skrtel throwing himself in front of Rooney’s rebound.

Liverpool’s owner John Henry stats the post-match celebrations coming from the club and ex-players:

Meanwhile, the traveling Kop were in fine voice, and the celebrations continued on Twitter, with fans feeling increasingly excited about a late charge towards the title, with nine games to go.
