4-1: Behind the numbers

I'm giving myself one more day to really roll around in this one. It's like making some kind of heavy meat dish in the world's longest-bubbling slow cooker. With every extra hour that concoction sits in there, it gets better and better.

Courtesy Television New Zealand, staff writer Michael Burgess digs into some of United's history to put Saturday in perspective:

• In the 10 years between 1993 and 2003, there were only three penalties awarded at Old Trafford to visiting teams and they all missed!
• United has not scored first at Old Trafford and then gone on to lose a Premier League match since 1995.
• By winning on Saturday, Liverpool also became the first team ever in the history of the Premier League to beat United twice in a season after trailing in both fixtures.
