Manchester United V Liverpool: Liverpool Player Ratings

Berbatov proved too good for the Liverpool defence to handle

Liverpool's poor start to the season continued as Roy Hodgson's team lost 3-2 against a Dimitar Berbatov-inspired Manchester United.

The Anfield side were lucky to only go in at half-time one goal down, but Berbatov's screamer to double the lead early in the second-half seemed to put the game to rest.

But Liverpool managed to come back as Captain Steven Gerrard bagged two goals, the first from the penalty spot after Fernando Torres, for so much of the game a spectator, had been fouled by Johnny Evans.

Gerrard than smashed home the equaliser from a free-kick, again won by Torres, although question marks have to be asked over the Man United defensive wall.

But Berbatov proved too much for Liverpool to handle, and the Bulgarian completed his hat-trick in the 84th minute as he rose above Jamie Carragher to head home, sealing all three points for the home team.

Here are my ratings for Liverpool's players in this afternoon's game.
