BBC Match of the Day pundit Alan Hansen reckons the game between Liverpool and Manchester United on Saturday was one of the best he has seen between the rivals at Anfield for six or seven years.
It was easy to see why. Usually cagey affairs, Manchester United started like a train, scoring within three minutes and seemingly set to rip Liverpool to shreds.
But then the hosts upped their work-rate and, according to Hansen, produced a fine display where they pressed their opponents causing the champions to make mistakes all over the pitch.
Hansen believes Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez got his tactics spot on and he was also encouraged by Albert Riera's performance as the Reds seemed to add more width to their attack than in recent games.
Full-backs Alvaro Arbeloa and Fabio Aurelio also got forward more which will encourage the missing Fernando Torres who has shouldered the goal scoring burden for so long.
Have Liverpool finally found their groove? And how pleased were you that it happened without Torres and, for the most part, Steven Gerrard?
Does it prove that Liverpool can win games without the pair?
Meanwhile Dimitar Berbatov's debut was entirely in keeping with Manchester United's performance.
The Bulgarian seemed to go quiet after some strong Jamie Carragher challenges early on although he expertly set up the opening goal.
Did you see signs that he can link up with Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney? Or were you concerned that Rooney was stuck out on the right after his leading role through the middle for England in their 4-1 win over Croatia?
What impressed you during the game and what tactical hopes and concerns have you got for both teams for the rest of the season?
