Steven Gerrard and company have been terrific under Brendon Rodgers this season. The game against Arsenal in the English Premier League was enough proof to football fans how Liverpool has rejuvenated under the him. United have not performed well under David Moyes yet and are still waiting for a few convincing performances.
