Okay, last week we saw Liverpool thump United at Old Trafford 4-1. But any honest football fan would say, United were in control.
More shots, more possession, more passing. Only problem was, they had more mistakes as well.
Liverpool did the same at Anfield in September, when the were at the top of the table. Coming from behind to beat the defending champs, who began the season inconsistently.
But what did that come to?
That's right, nothing.
Liverpool struggled after that, the fans became so restless that they actually booed the players off after drawing 0-0 at home to West Ham (very loyal).
On the other hand, Man United began playing the way we know they can. A long winning streak was needed and that was ensured with a bonus of Van der Sar not letting in anything for three months.
But United had to give away a goal sometime. They had to lose sometime. It was unfortunate it happened against Liverpool, but in the end, United didn't need the win. It was Liverpool who were desperate for it. They got it, but it's not going to make any difference.
Man United have an amazing record of wins after losing. Seeing their confidence at the moment, that isn't going to change.
Liverpool will be glad they just had an excellent week, but do they have the capacity to continue?
They might, but if Rafa keeps talking rubbish like he has been, not only the kits, but even their faces might be red.
Apart from the beginning of the season, Liverpool have been inconsistent. They might go into their next game with sky high confidence, but that confidence might just get them a bit too high and thus, they can mistakes during their match against a dangerous Aston Villa.
Liverpool can't win the title. And that's a fact.
