Liverpool 0 – 1 Manchester United – Full Match : EPL 3 Mar 07

Man United rode their luck to snatch a fortunate victory and take
a giant stride towards
the title with John O’Shea’s injury-time winner.

United lost Wayne Rooney through injury and saw Paul Scholes sent off
late on for a clash
with Xabi Alonso as Liverpool dominated for long spells.

But substitute O’Shea pounced after Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina fumbled
Cristiano Ronaldo’s free-kick.

Edwin Van der Sar had earlier saved brilliantly from Peter Crouch.

Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated the winner in his own unique fashion on the
touchline,and it was easy to see
why after his side had somehow fashioned
a crucial three points.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez resisted the temptation to field an
under-strengthside ahead of the
Champions League meeting with Barcelona
at Anfield on Tuesday.

And they had the better of a patchy, and predictably hard-fought, first 45 minutes.

John Arne Riise was within inches of putting Liverpool ahead after 26 minutes,
sending a low,
driven free-kick narrowly wide.

United escaped again four minutes later when Craig Bellamy robbed the
uncertain Nemanja Vidic,
but his cross flashed along the six-yard line with
Dirk Kuyt unable to apply the final touch.

Liverpool were rarely troubled, although Jamie Carragher had to intervene
bravely to deny Rooney
as he shaped to shoot inside the area.

The momentum was all with Liverpool as the second half started and they did
everything but score
as United were pinned back.

Steven Gerrard shot over from 12 yards, and Bellamy forced a save from
Van der Sar low down
before having a close-range effort ruled out for offside.

Riise then fired a rising drive just over the top from 25 yards as Liverpool
dominated a strangely lack-lustre United.

The game had become a disappointing stalemate, with United replacing
an ineffective
Henrik Larsson – on his final Premiership appearance before
returning to Helsingborg – with Louis Saha.

And United suffered a blow with 18 minutes left when Rooney limped off with
a gashed leg
and injury to his knee after a high challenge with Carragher.

Saha was at the centre of penalty claims with 12 minutes left when he tumbled
under a
challenge from Daniel Agger, but referee Martin Atkinson was unmoved.

United then threatened a smash-and-grab when the previously unemployed
Reina needed to
scoop away a header from Ronaldo.

Scholes and Alonso had been involved in a succession of spats, and the United
star saw red
after he raised his hand in the direction of the Spanish midfield man
though no contact was made.

Van der Sar then produced a pivotal moment, diving acrobatically to his left to
palm away Crouch’s shot.

And just as United seemed happy to settle for a point, Reina dropped Ronaldo’s
free-kick at the feet of
O’Shea, who slammed his finish into the roof of the net.
