Manchester United sweeps series from Liverpool

Manchester United weathered a late fightback from Liverpool to secure a 2-1 win over its great rival on Sunday, tightening the leaders’ grip at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Robin van Persie’s league-high 17th goal of the campaign gave United a 19th-minute lead, and the hosts looked likely to coast to victory at Old Trafford when captain Nemanja Vidic unwittingly deflected the ball in from close range to make it 2-0 in the 54th. Full match report here.
