Park seals vital victory

Published Add your comment

Manchester United came from behind to reclaim the Premier League's top spot with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Fernando Torres gave the visitors a fifth-minute lead, only for Wayne Rooney to equalise in controversial fashion, tucking home the rebound from a penalty given for a Javier Mascherano foul on Antonio Valencia that started outside the area.

In a second half of few clear-cut chances, Park Ji-sung headed home the winner after an hour when he came through a crowd of bodies to finish Darren Fletcher's superb cross.
