The home side keep up their 100% record and top the Premier League table.
The tried and tested formula of a 1-0 victory through a Daniel Sturridge goal works for the third time running, as Liverpool overcome their toughest test yet against Manchester United.
The Englishman struck early on to give the Reds the advantage and continued to control the match throughout the first half as David Moyes’ men failed to get a grasp on the game.
Robin Van Persie lacked potency up-front and Michael Carrick was unusually overwhelmed in midfield for the visitors.
In fact midfield was a problematic area for the visitors all match, with the retirement of Paul Scholes being shown up as a major issue for the first time this season.
Moyes really needs some creativity in the middle of the park and will hope that moves for either Everton’s Marouane Fellaini or Ander Herrera of Athletic Bilbao comes off before the transfer window shuts at 11pm on Monday.
The Red Devils did manage to find some more form in the second half and were a significant improvement, but still could not make the breakthrough.
For the hosts however things continue to get better and better under Brendan Rodgers and the side’s defensive stability is commendable.
The absence of Luis Suarez is clearly not affecting the team and beating rivals United will only serve to give the Reds more confidence.
Whether they can maintain this form remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain, Rodgers has brought a new sense of belief to Anfield with this being the club’s best start since 1994/95.
