That felt like a big three points. Shame Mario couldn't stay and applaud the fans, bu I guess that's just him doing his thing.

Who's criticizing him?
 
During the post game on NBCSN after the match. They were getting on him for not celebrating the goal when he put it in the net and after the match when he just walked off the pitch. In particular, Phil Neville. That man is brutal on the air most of the time anyway and I loathe anytime he's doing an LFC match. The Manc and Toffee in him won't let him give credit where credit is due. 
 
On to the FA Cup match against Palace and Europa against Besikas.

California. Duh.
Yeah, between Tim Howard and Phil Neville, it's like NBC has gone out of their way to find guys who have played for both Manchester United and Everton to call Liverpool games.

All four games at half tied at half, the other two both 0-0.  Makes it hard to decide what second half to watch.  NBC Live Extra isn't always the greatest quality when streaming, but their model for making every single game available is outstanding.

United up 2-1 at halftime and have been thoroughly outplayed by Burnley.  Amazingly, Chris Smalling (coming on for an injured Phil Jones in the first 5 minutes) has both goals off of corner kicks.  The first being his first touch of the game.
 
 
Blind is picked up an injury so Herrera came on, and Rooney is playing at the bottom of the diamond.  Blech.

Aguero has a goal ruled out (and a yellow given) for intentional handball.  I don't think it was a very sensible decision, but the NBC announcers for some reason think he intentionally handled it.  Seems like it went off his head onto his hand and was going in anyway.

Was just going to write this.  Crazy decision.

United getting outplayed by Burnley at Old Trafford but up 2-1 on two Smalling goals.

After Blind goes off to injury, LVG is playing a team with four natural CBs (McNair, Jones, Rojo, Smalling), four natural CAMs/wingers (Rooney, Januzaj, Herrera, and Di Maria), and two CFs (RVP, Falcao)!

Been watching the Saints v Hammers match. Very stoppy starty game, the ref blowing his whistle a lot, and getting it wrong a decent amount. I didn't catch his name but he's young and the Saints fans have been loudest when they're having a go at him. Not much ambition from West Ham, but they seem solid and well drilled. Oh yeah, for West Ham free kicks in the opposing half Saints are keeping a really high line. It's working so far.

Danny Ings misses one of the easiest goal opportunities he'll ever see.  In his defense, two of the United players completely whiffed on the ball.

Fitting that Alan Hutton today looks like an early 90s DJ clinging onto a dream that's been dead for 2 decades

i dunno why that's funny but it is.
 
I knew things were bad when i watched a Villa game earlier in the season and the commentator said Hutton had been their player of the season so far.

Oh wait until you see what the West Ham keeper just did. He tries to take on the Southampton player in the six yard box, ball ends up just outside the 18 yard box, he run and dives on it and now he's offski.

Wow... guess Adrián thought the 'top of the key' counts?

Not content to just give the ball away on a terrible pass, Arfield commits a penalty on the ensuing break.  Now 3-1 United.  Has any team this year grabbed more points from games where they look terrible?

Just after Chelsea had a goal rightly disallowed for offside, Barry sent off for Everton, who are now down to 10 men and clinging to a 0-0 scoreline.
 
Fake edit: and then Willian scores.

Chelsea scoring some jammy goal was pretty inevitable, but it's too bad because we probably would have gotten a truly epic shitfit out of Mourinho if they had drawn/lost
