Manchester United have a Grand National of away fixtures coming up, with Real Madrid, Newcastle and Arsenal in the next couple of weeks, and much to their embarrassment Liverpool found themselves providing an innocuous first hurdle.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s players cleared it comfortably, if not in any great style. Before the second-half goals that permitted a flattering margin, the home fans were growing restless at United’s reluctance to break into a canter, but maybe that was the point of the exercise. ‘The second half was fantastic for us. We played without running,’ Ferguson said. ‘We were able to win and still save something for Tuesday night.’
