The Latics controversially hit back, Wilson Palacios impersonated a high jumper following a challenge from Garrido, ref Bennett pointed to the spot and Amr Zaki continued his superb record since arriving in England.

United eventually moved ahead but in completely undeserved circumstances, Rob Styles criminally penalised Samuel’s clean tackle on Ronaldo and awarded a penalty, which Ronaldo took and converted.

Everton suffered from a “foul” called on Marouane Fellaini as he jumped with Reina for a ball which both players missed, but the £15m man wasted his shot. Steven Gerrard was starring for Liverpool, and after the Reds began building up momentum early in the second half they scored, Alonso released Keane down the left and his cross was volleyed home by Fernando Torres. And one become two minutes later, Keane fed Kuyt in the box, his shot was saved with Torres firing home the rebound.
