Two superb goals from the Spaniard Juan Mata were enough to lift Man United past 10-man Liverpool and move them five points clear in the top four race. Gerrard in the first minute of the second half picked up a red card, making things much difficult for his side. Still, Sturridge manage to put one behind David de Gea but it wasn’t enough to grab a draw. Wayne Rooney had a late penalty but Mignolet saved his shot.
