Liverpool Ain't Dead Yet

Don't hand the Premiership championship trophy to Manchester United just yet.

Liverpool walked into Old Trafford earlier today and handed United a 4-1 hammering to keep their title hopes alive, and swept the series from them this season. The Reds fell behind early on a penalty kick by Cristiano Ronaldo, but Liverpool came back in the 28th minute on a goal by Fernando Torres (pictured), and took a 2-1 halftime lead by way of a Steven Gerrard penalty.

United went down a man in the 76th minute when Nemanja Vidic was sent off, and Liverpool took advantage and made it 3-1 with a goal from Fabio Aurelio. And Liverpool completed their biggest win at Old Trafford since 1936 when Andrea Dossens made it a 4-1 thrashing in added time. Here's more on Liverpool's historic win from ESPN.

Liverpool still have a mountain to climb as they are in second place, 4 points behind United, and Man U still has a game in hand. But this could be the game that puts the Reds back in the race and shifts momentum over to their side. Go Liverpool!!
