Wayne Rooney and Ji-Sung Park retain Red Devils back at the greatness top Premier League.

- Rooney 12,
- Park 60

- Torres 5

**Manchester United returned to the top of the Premier League table with a 2-1 win against rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Fernando Torres scored the opener with a fine header before Wayne Rooney equalised at the second time of asking after his penalty was saved. Ji-Sung Park scored the winner in the second half with a wonderful diving header.

And if United do go on to claim a fourth straight title and a record-breaking 19th in all, Park will deserve special mention for his telling contributions in key games such as this, when victory was vital.

Wayne Rooney may have been United’s star man this season, taking his goal tally to 33 for the season from the rebound of a saved penalty, but unsung hero Park has played his part.

Team Line-ups:

Manchester United: Van der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Fletcher, Carrick, Park (Scholes '87), Nani (Giggs '79), Rooney.

Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Mascherano, Lucas (Benayoun '83), Kuyt (Aquilani '73), Gerrard, Maxi (Babel '76), Torres.
