MATCH HIGHLIGHTS: Liverpool FC 1-1 Manchester United

Manchester United traveled to Merseyside on Saturday for a lunchtime affair versus rival Liverpool FC -- the result being a 1-1 draw. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson left out Wayne Rooney, Nani, Javier Hernandez (Chicharito), and Anderson from his starting XI. It was a functional XI that lacked creativity in attack but mostly held Liverpool's attack in check. The stalemate was finally broken in the 68th minute when Charlie Adam made a darting run from deep before being (softly?) taken down by Rio Ferdinand just outside the box. Steven Gerrard then put a shot through the wall -- where Ryan Giggs let the ball squeeze by him-- and put his side ahead. Immediately after, Ferguson brought on Rooney, Nani, and Chicharito as substitutes. It was Chicharito that scored the equaliser from a header after Danny Welbeck flicked on a corner. Although the final half hour of the match was intense and full of excitement, the rest was rather dull. It may have been further marred by Luis Suarez and his alleged racial abuse to Patrice Evra. Overall, a draw at Anfield is not a terrible result and is likely the most United deserved on the day. Quite honestly, United were rubbish and never seemed to play with the intent of grabbing the full three points. Here are "highlights" courtesy of Fox Soccer:
