Fernando Torres scored after 38 seconds and Neymar scored after eight minutes. There were 11 yellow cards, five goals, two penalties and two reds, not that anyone realised: the first of them whipped out and waved in the players' tunnel at half time.

Last September, Angel Di Maria put Manchester United 2-0 ahead with a stunning lob and all looked right with the world.

That, however, could be about to change on Saturday if Brendan Rodgers' men do not rediscover their winning touch quickly.
