Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United Premier League Highlights (Video)

A Dirk Kuyt hat-trick severely dented Sir Alex Ferguson’s pride as well as giving Manchester United’s title contenders renewed hope. Injury and suspension to Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic meant that Chris Smalling and Wes Brown formed a new and ill fated centre back partnership that failed to cope with the style of Luis Suarez and the work rate of Dirk Kuyt.

Kenny Dalglish’s side were always in control of a game that threatened to boil over at the end of the first half when Jamie Carragher’s poor challenge ended Nani’s afternoon and Rafael dived in on Lucas shortly afterwards as the half time interval approached.

The second half saw Man United push forward without effect and a Luis Suarez free-kick was only parried by Edwin van der Sar into the path of Kuyt to complete his treble. There was time for Andy Carroll to make his Liverpool debut as Anfield celebrated a famous victory over an old enemy and for Javier Hernandez to score a consolation goal in injury time.
