Beating the Mancs 2008 – Albert Riera made his reds bow as we came from behind to beat Manchester United 2-1 at Anfield. Carlos Tévez opened the scoring for the visitors after just three minutes, with one of his four goals past us to date, with a Wes Brown own goal drawing us level before half an hour had elapsed. This was the 400th goal we had scored under Rafael Benítez.
