Antonio Valencia scored his first goal for Manchester United as they returned to the top of the Premier League.
United were ahead early when Zat Knight diverted Michael Owen’s header past his own keeper while Jonny Evans forced a fine save from Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Sunderland 1 Liverpool 0

Darren Bent’s bizarre goal of the season gave Liverpool their fourth league defeat of the season in a feisty clash.

Bent’s shot hit a liverpool fans inflatable ball thrown from the crowd that deceived keeper Jose Reina and despite all the Liverpool protests the goal stood.

Reina denied on fire Bent hitting a second, before rival bosses Steve Bruce and Rafa Benitez were involved in a furious touchline rant as it all kicked off.

 Benitez  with his view on the fluke goal said the goal should have stood and that was no excuse after a poor result today.
