Cristiano Ronaldo’s early penalty put United in front but Fernando Torres’ equaliser shortly afterwards hinted at what was to come. The Spanish striker capitalised on a Nemanja Vidic mistake for the leveler and went on to torment his opponent all afternoon, before the Serbian defender was eventually sent off.
Steven Gerrard’s converted penalty put the visitors in front just before half-time and Fabio Aurelio’s brilliant free-kick capitalised on Vidic’s red card. United’s humiliation was complete when Andrea Dossena finished neatly in stoppage time to claim a rare goal.
