    THIRD PLACE LIVERPOOL WERE HAMMERED 4-1 BY MANCHESTER UNITED TODAY IN THE ENGLISH FOOTBALL LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION. THE BIGGEST CROWD OF THE DAY, GETTING ON TO 48,000, WATCHED THE MATCH.......LIVERPOOL ??? SECOND SUCCESSIVE DEFEAT AT HOME.

    LIVERPOOL HELD THE VISITORS TO 1-1 IN THE FIRST HALF AFTER GOALS BY ENLYN HUGHES AND THEIR SKIPPER RON YEATS, WHO OPENED THE SCORING BY HEADING INTO HIS OWN NET. BUT MANCHESTER EXPLODED IN THE SECOND HALF WITH A BRILLIANT DISPLAY THAT OVERPOWERED THE LIVERPOOL DEFENCE. CENTRE HALF IAN URE SCORED HIS FIRST GOAL SINCE JOINING UNITED FROM ARSENAL AND THEN WILLY MORGAN AND ENGLAND INTERNATIONAL BOBBY CHARLTON ADDED TO THE MANCHESTER TALLY.

    MORGAN AND PADDY CRERAND WERE ONLY POSSIBLE STARTERS UNTIL NOBBY STILES AND KIDD FAILED MORNING FITNESS TESTS. BUT IT WAS THESE TWO WHO PLAYED A BIG PART IN THE CONVINCING VICTORY, PARTICULARLY CRERAND WHO TOOK CHARGE IN MID FIELD DURING THE SECOND HALF.

    LIVERPOOL'S LOSS DROPPED THEM FURTHER BEHIND THE LEADERS, EVERTON AND LEEDS, WHO BOTH WON TODAY.
