We're back to usual service at Old Trafford, where Manchester United are beating twelve kinds of hell out of Liverpool. Wayne Rooney, on a hattrick, nearly makes it 3-0 twice, the first with a thunderbolt of a long-range effort that gets recalled due to a Jonny Evans foul that was nothing of the sort and the second after a Paul Scholes dummy played him through in the area only for the England man to miscontrol and ultimately shank a shot well wide.
Stewart Downing, meanwhile, is having a miserable evening - his contribution to the second half has been a) to waste a free kick and b) to run the ball out of play - and Kenny Dalglish mercifully ends his evening by replacing him with Craig Bellamy. Jay Spearing's also been yanked for Andy Carroll, who's just been beaten in the air by the 3'-6" Rafael da Silva. This is all quite funny, to be honest. 2-0 United.
