Rooney Scores Twice as Man U Edges Liverpool
Wayne Rooney scored two goals and Manchester United moved back into first place in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool
The win was huge for United but is overshadowed by Luis Suarez's refusal to shake hands with Patrice Evra during the traditional pregame handshake.
Suarez was starting his first match since serving an eight-game ban for racially abusing Evra during a league match on Oct. 15. Instead of trying to move on, Suarez withdrew his hand as Evra put his out for a handshake.
"He is a disgrace to Liverpool Football Club," United manager Alex Ferguson. "He shouldn't be able to play for Liverpool again."
United is in first pending the outcome of Manchester City's game at Aston Villa on Sunday.
