Match Rewind: United 3-2 Liverpool

UNITED 3-2 LIVERPOOL (2010/11)

The Bulgarian loves to take centre stage and he couldn’t have picked a more opportune moment to put in a virtuoso display. The striker nodded United ahead in this clash, from a Ryan Giggs corner, before adding a sublime second on 59 minutes. Berbatov controlled Nani’s cross inside the Liverpool box and then artfully guided the ball into the top corner from an acrobatic overhead-kick. It was a goal worthy of winning any match, but Steven Gerrard’s brace, soon after, meant that wasn’t going to be the case, as our Merseyside foes looked set to leave Old Trafford with a share of the spoils.
