Manchester United 1 - 4 Liverpool

Followed up the four they put past Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16 second leg on Tuesday, Liverpool side hauled themselves back into the title fight with a decisive 4-1 hammering of 10-man Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Merseyside giants battled back from a goal down to defeat the Premier League leaders in clinical fashion, Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard turning the match on its head before the break, with Fabio Aurelio and Andrea Dossena easing Liverpool well clear before the end.

In contrast, it was an day to forget for Nemanja Vidic, who gifted Torres the equaliser before being sent off against Liverpool for second time this season as Benitez's side reduced United's lead at the top to four points, albeit having played a game more.

It represented Liverpool's biggest win at United since 1936 and could yet trigger an amazing championship revival. Liverpool have managed to do this season is beat Chelsea and United, against both of whom they have now registered 'doubles'.

With the slaughtering of two European giants in 5 days, The Reds are now back to the business...!!!
