Liverpool Vs. Manchester United: Javier Hernández Finds Consolation

In the 92nd minute, Manchester United ruined Pepe Reina's shutout with possibly the first shot they've had on goal all match. But Javier Hernández's reaction to the goal said everything we needed to know about its importance. Chicharito, upon seeing his header go inside Reina's right post, went for the ball with urgency before remembering. It was the second of third minutes of stoppage time, and United was still down two. His sprint ended after three steps and broke into a jog. The match was still over.

With Chicharito's goal, the scored sits 3-1 as we wait for Phil Dowd's whistle. The tally was set-up by Ryan Giggs, who crossed to Hernández from the right edge of the penalty area, using his off-foot to chip a ball to the edge of the six. It was an easy finish for the unmarked striker, Liverpool treating the match was as much urgency as the resigned United.

With the match moments from going final, United looks set to stay only three points ahead of Arsenal at the top of the league. Liverpool will hand the Red Devils their third loss of the season, each defeat coming in United's last five league matches.
