JAVIER MASCHERANO today urged his team-mates not to let their efforts against Manchester United go to waste when Premier League duty resumes this weekend.
DAVID NGOG dedicated his "best moment in football" to the two families who have supported him throughout his football career - his own family, and the Liverpool fans who carried the team through to a famous victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

I'VE seen headlines all about Fernando Torres. I've read headlines praising Yossi Benayoun. And I saw plenty more extolling Jamie Carragher's 'return to form' (not that he ever lost that much in my opinion).
But the player for me who deserved just as much credit as anyone for Sunday's superb result was Dirk Kuyt.
He was the man who set the tempo for the rest of the team to follow.
IN the cold light of day, it's time to assess where Liverpool go from here - because there's no point beating Manchester United if you don't build on it.
It is, admittedly, a decent platform to start from. It's relieved the external pressure on the side, not that there was any pressure internally after Christian Purlsow and Kenny Dalglish gave Rafael Benitez their full support.
But the fact that the Anfield press box was suddenly populated by journalists from London for a north west derby shows just how much the circling cultures were sharpening their talons.
