  • - Unfortunately Liverpool helped Manchester United win the League title by beating Aston Villa so convincingly as the Liverpool Echo reported: "Three cheers for the team that played at Anfield on Saturday! We have had some dull games in our time, but Saturday’s exhibition was one long to be remembered as the best game seen this season. There is a reflected glory to Liverpool in their last and best success, for without this well deserved victory at Anfield Manchester United could not have gained the championship even though they ran up a big score at home against Sunderland. Manchester United should send Liverpool a vote of thanks."
