Everton 0 Liverpool 2: Red-letter day for Torres but it's derby blues for Everton

Perhaps it was Fernando Torres's absence from last season's Goodison derby which led David Moyes to overlook him when asked before this game who he feared most in Liverpool's side. The Everton manager will not be making that mistake again. Three minutes and two touches of the ball were all it took for the Spaniard to condemn Moyes' side to further misery in this fixture and in this season.

Benitez pulls plug on expectations to recharge batteries

Rarely have the benefits of a 2-1 win over Manchester United been so immediate and so profound. Not only have Liverpool extinguished, for a few months at least, images of a triumphant Gary Neville pumping his fist at the Kop but they find themselves propelled into Marseilles' Stade Vélodrome tonight in a collective state of mind that could hardly contrast more with their last visit here nine months ago.

Liverpool 2 Manchester United 1: Alonso has right spirit as Liverpool ruin big day for Berbatov

On the top deck of the coach which carried his Manchester United side out of Anfield on Saturday afternoon, Sir Alex Ferguson unfolded a copy of the Racing Post. It would have occupied him most the way back along the M62 because he knows that in the sport of kings, as in football, there is rarely such a thing as a dead cert.

Stage set for protest over Gillett and Hicks

Liverpool's co-owner George Gillett is expected at Anfield for the visit of Manchester United tomorrow and seems unlikely to be left in any doubt about the force of the club's fans antipathy towards him and Tom Hicks.

'I'm committed to develop at United' pledges Berbatov

It was, by Sir Alex Ferguson's admission, the most drawn-out transfer in a career which has seen countless. But Dimitar Berbatov, whose £30.75m move to Manchester United in a four-year deal was announced at 12.40am yesterday morning, has already started talking about remaining at Old Trafford for the rest of his career. "I know I can develop here in the way I always wanted," he said last night. "That is the most important thing for me. I am 27 now. I am at the biggest club in the world and maybe this could be the last step in my career."
