Gerrard over the moon as 'genuine contenders' Liverpool produce massive win at Man Utd

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was absolutely delighted to be part of a side that was on the right end of a result at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red enhanced their title credentials by beating Manchester United 3-0 at the Theatre of Dreams in what was a dominant performance from the visitors.

Gerrard netted twice from the penalty spot, either side of half-time, before missing a third from 12 yards when Nemanja Vidic was questionably sent off for a foul on Daniel Sturridge.

That preceded Luis Suarez's 25th Premier League goal of the campaign which saw second-placed Liverpool go within four points of leaders Chelsea prompting words of praise from the skipper.

"I've come here many times and been played off the park. They're a fantastic team," he told Sky Sports.

"This is one of the most difficult places to come in the Premier League so to come here and dominate from start to finish, we're still going away slightly disappointed that we never got more goals.

"It's a fantastic day personally, getting a couple of goals. We came here to win the game.

"I said before the game it's difficult and we need to just take each game as they come and try and win them all.

"We'll enjoy tonight. We need to move on very quickly because Cardiff's going to be tough (next weekend).

"I think we've shown today that we're genuine contenders and we're going to fight to the end for this."
