Premier League: Manchester United beat Liverpool 3-0 as David De Gea excels

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

David De Gea produced a man-of-the-match performance as Manchester

United extended their winning run in the Premier League to six games

with a 3-0 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

First-half goals from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata and a third after the

break from Robin van Persie saw Louis van Gaal's side close to within

five points of second-placed Manchester City in the table.

However, their defensive frailties were all too apparent throughout

the game and they were hugely indebted to De Gea, who produced no

fewer than six excellent saves in a superb performance.

Liverpool had no trouble creating chances against United's porous back

three, but defensive errors of their own and a mistake from the

officials for Mata's goal ensured they remain ninth in the table,

seven points adrift of the top four.
