Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish conceded Manchester United were the better team yesterday.

Dalglish admitted Wayne Rooney's brace just after the break all but killed of his side's hopes.

"Obviously the goal goals coming as quick as they did made it very difficult for us to try and get anything from the game," he said.

"To the boys' credit they got back and got a goal, but I think overall you could say they (United) were the better side. But you would expect them to be at home."
