Nothing puts a smile on the face of a Manchester United fan more than beating Liverpool at Anfield and the same goes for the players.
For all his shortfalls, van Gaal’s record against the Scousers is impeccable and that’ll be one happy coach on its way back to Manchester.

Rooney scored his fourth in as many games as well and ended his run of poor performances at Anfield with a match-winning contribution that United fans won’t forget any time soon. It looks like he is finally going on one of his bursts of form and my how we’ve needed that in attack this year.
Next up for United is a home game against Southampton next weekend but for the time being let’s all just soak it up and enjoy beating Liverpool, because the players and van Gaal certainly will.
