Liverpool trash united 3-0,as Arsenal beat Spur 1-0

Wayne Rooney has described Manchester United’s catastrophic
Premier League defeat to Liverpool as “one of the worst days” he has
ever had in football.
United were comprehensively beaten 3-0 at Old Trafford by their
adversaries on Sunday; Steven Gerrard scored twice from the
penalty spot and missed a third for his hat-trick, before Luis Suarez
sealed a superb day for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
To rub salt into the wound, Nemanja Vidic was shown a second
yellow card after he conceded the third penalty, although it appeared
that Daniel Sturridge had dived to win it.
Speaking to United’s official television channel MUTV after the
game, Rooney said of the loss: “It’s a nightmare. It’s one of the worst
days I’ve ever had in football. It’s hard to take. You have to give

Liverpool credit — they played well — but it’s difficult to take.
Nobody wants to lose, especially in this way, in your own stadium.
It’s not nice.
“To go behind by one penalty was hard to take. We had a game plan
for the second half, which went out the window when they got the
second penalty so early on. It made it an uphill battle to come back.
“I thought after that we had a couple of chances where I thought if
we got one we could have gone for a second and maybe we could have
done it. Obviously it didn’t happen, though. Then, to concede a third
penalty, even though they missed, was a big blow to us. We were then
chasing the game with 10 men. That made it difficult for us and they
kept the ball well to see the game out. I haven’t seen the penalties back
again but from where I was standing on the pitch I don’t think we
can argue with them.”
The striker recently put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half year
deal that will earn him a record 300,000 pounds-a-week.
Defeat for United puts them 14 points behind their bitter rivals and 11
points off fourth place; this time last season, United were 29 points
clear of Liverpool and on their way to a 20th top-flight crown.
However, under new manager David Moyes, United look certain to
finish the season with only the Community Shield to their name.
Moyes must now boost his troop’s morale for their upcoming
Champions League last-16 second leg with Olympiakos at Old
Trafford. They currently trail 2-0 in the tie and will need a
surmountable turnaround if they are to chase European glory to save
their season.
