Manchester United’s assault on the title intensifies after 2-1 Liverpool win
Manchester United 2 – Liverpool 1 (Premier League, January 13, 2013) (Alternative highlights, High quality highlights & MOTD highlights.) Liverpool were carved open in the 18th minute when a left-wing Evra cross was steered home by Robin van Persie. United came close to doubling their lead but Reina saved van Persie’s backheel shot from Rafael’s great work down the right. Ten minutes into the second half Patrice Evra/Nemanja Vidic put United 2-up. Liverpool hit back almost immediately as a Gerard effort was parried by De Gea only for Daniel Sturridge to pounce on the rebound.
