Reds lead at the top widens as Liverpool are beaten at the death...

So for the second league game in a row United win again in the dying minutes of a game, this time the opponents were arch rivals Liverpool as the Reds win courtesy of second half substitute John O'Shea's late goal.

Liverpool will perhaps feel robbed, after giving their all to win this game in the second half as the visitors seemed to be content to hang on for a point, but United too may well feel slightly aggrieved after Saha was denied what looked like a definite penalty after being brought down in the Liverpool penalty area late on in this tense game.

United won this game through grit and determination and great defending, after losing Wayne Rooney following a rash challenge by Jamie Carragher. The former Everton star looked in need of stitches with a nasty looking gash on this thigh. Then as if that was bad enough, the ginger prince Paul Scholes was harshly sent off for what the referee deemed to be an attempted punch, it wasn't, but even though the official had less than a clear view of the incident the United midfield player was shown the red card.

Arsene Wenger recently stated United have no legs late on in games, but for the second game in a row United scored at the death to win a game, so Wenger will have to revise his views on United's stamina and Jose Mourinho is now left to chew on being 12 points behind the league leaders. For the first time in three seasons, the pressure is very much on Jose and his boys.
