Manchester United Vs. Liverpool, 2012 Premier League: Handshake Drama At Old Trafford

What time is it? It's handshake o'clock! There's been some fuss about what would go down in the pre-match handshakes (and yes, a little part of me has died writing this), and things came to fruition when Luis Suarez refused Patrice Evra's outstretched hand, causing the Manchester United left-back to reach out and grab him by the arm after the Uruguayan had moved on to David de Gea. So yeah, that's fun.

Oh, and there's football too, and things start off with a bang after Patrice Evra collides with him, sending him flying into the air and landing on his hand. Hopefully the centre back will be ok, but that didn't look pretty at all. Evra had gone flying into the tackle in an attempt to wipe out the handshake-refusing meanie - it looks like that move by Suarez has reignited a lot of the bad blood between the sides. All Liverpool so far in the very early going, but no goals yet.
