Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Daniel Sturridge scores to give visitors hope

Daniel Sturridge has pulled one back for Liverpool, quickly cancelling out Patrice Evra's goal and reducing Liverpool's deficit back to one.

Steven Gerrard was given space outside the area to shoot, and his effort was kept out with a sprawling save by David de Gea, but Daniel Sturridge had followed up and had a simple tap-in to make it 2-1, scoring on his Premier League debut. Replacing Lucas Leiva looked like an odd decision but it seems, for now, to have paid off.

It's game on now, and Liverpool should be picked up by that - they hadn't looked like scoring at all until their new signing gave them hope. United haven't dominated the second half as they did the first, although Danny Welbeck is still looking phenomenally dangerous for the hosts. It all looks set to be an absorbing finish to the game, and United could well end up ruing those missed chances in the first half.
