Ferdinand, Garcia and more: Twitter reacts as Man United beat Liverpool
Rio Ferdinand and Luis Garcia were among the tweeters after Manchester United beat Liverpool 3-1 at Old Trafford
Anthony Martial announced himself to the Premier League with a superb late goal as Manchester United beat Liverpool 3-1 at Old Trafford.
After a goalless and uninspiring first half, United took the lead when Daley Blind curled home from a free kick after being set up by Juan Mata.
Ander Herrera made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after the Spaniard was brought down by Joe Gomez in the box.
Christian Benteke then pulled a goal back for Brendan Rodgers’ men late on with a superb overhead kick to set up a tense finale.
However, substitute Martial put the game beyond doubt when he surged into the box and slotted home a cool finish to wrap up the three points.
Here is some of the best Twitter reaction to United’s win.
Darren Campbell is one of the first to react to the third goal:

David Thompson is not impressed by Brendan Rodgers’ tactics:
Can't believe Rodgers used benteke in the same way lambert did? Unreal naivety to think he would get more out of him leaving him isolated!!

Luis Garcia reflects on the result:
Not a good game and worst score. Lfc 1 vs Mufc 3. Time to think where is the team going. Benteke the only spark. #ynwa
