Manchester United defeated Liverpool 3-0 yesterday.
Manchester United won their sixth game in six yesterday to continue climbing up the table. United now sit in third place in the league and are in touching distance of Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.
The fact that they got that win against their arch-rivals Liverpool was a major boost. United won 3-0 against their old nemesis Liverpool with goals from captain Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie doing the damage.
The victory was of course thanks in part to the excellent performance of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea who kept out the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli on several occasions.
The United players were clearly happy with their performance and the end result. The likes of Rooney, Mata, Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick were on Twitter after the game to express their joy at getting the better of their rivals at Old Trafford.
