Birthday boy Daniel Sturridge scored his third goal in three games to give Liverpool a 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Anfield.

The 24-year-old’s fourth-minute header sends Brendan Rodgers’ side top of the Barclays Premier League with a 100 percent record after three consecutive single-goal wins.

United boss David Moyes also saw his first taste of this fiery encounter end with his search for a maiden win at Anfield being stretched to 13 games.

The decisive moment saw Daniel Agger meet Steven Gerrard’s corner with a powerful header, before Sturridge flicked the ball on and beyond David De Gea.

United seemed to lose some discipline in a first half which saw them pick up three yellow cards, as Tom Cleverly, Michael Carrick and Robin van Persie found themselves in Andre Marriner’s notebook.

Rodgers’ side saw out victory as Simon Mignolet made a couple of vital saves, while Robin van Persie missed an excellent opportunity later on. At the other end, Raheem Sterling nearly wrapped up victory in injury time but was brilliantly denied by De Gea.

Tottenham Hotspur could join Liverpool with three wins from three if they overcome Arsenal at the Emirates in the  north London derby later today.
