Liverpool thrashed Manchester united in Anfield as they sign Victor Moses on Loan

Daniel Sturridge's goal earned Liverpool victory over Manchester United to continue their 100% start to the season, their best for 19 years.

The hosts began at a blistering rate and Sturridge stooped to turn in from a corner after four minutes.United, who lost the injured Phil Jones in the first half, were disjointed but
improved slightly after the break, reports the BBC.Nani went close before Robin van Persie fired wide with David Moyes still looking for his first win at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will complete the formalities of a season-long loan deal for Chelsea's Victor Moses before the transfer window closes.

The 23-year-old has slipped even further down the pecking order at the Blues after the summer signings of Willian and Andre Schurrle.Liverpool will pay the Stamford Bridge club a loan fee, understood to be around £1m, as part of the deal for the former Crystal Palace and Wigan attacker.

West Bromwich Albion, Southampton and Everton had also shown an interest in Moses.Moses, who was at Anfield watching Liverpool play Manchester United on Sunday, signed for Chelsea from Wigan for a fee reported to be around £9m in August 2012.He made 23 Premier League appearances last season, scoring one goal, but has yet to feature for new manager Jose Mourinho this season.

The Nigerian international joined Wigan from Crystal Palace on a three-and-a-half-year deal in January 2010 for a reported fee of £2.5m.Earlier this week Liverpool agreed to sign central defenders Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori for a combined fee of around £25m.Sakho, 23, will cost £18m from Paris St-Germain with Ilori, 20, moving from Sporting Lisbon.

And at the Hawthorns, a goal in each half from Ben Davies and Pablo Hernandez secured Swansea's first Premier League win of the season while West Brom remain without a league goal.Davies scored only his second-ever goal for the Swans with a thunderous volley, before Hernandez netted his first goal for the club from close range.

The returning Nicolas Anelka went closest for the hosts before the break.


Liverpool 1 - Manchester United 0
