Ferguson slams Torres over O'Shea clash

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has accused Fernando Torres of deliberately trying to get John O'Shea sent off during his side's 3-2 victory over Liverpool on Sunday.

• Berbatov hails 'best day'
• Man United 3-2 Liverpool
• Hodgson denis 'catastrophe' talk
• Fergie: We should have thrashed them
• Jolly: Berbatov transition complete
• Blog: Fergie hypocrisy over Torres

A hat-trick from Dimitar Berbatov gave United a third successive Premier League home win of the season, but Ferguson's side had let Liverpool come back from two goals down before the Bulgarian netted a late winner.

But despite emerging from the game with all three points, Ferguson was left incensed by the incident that led to Liverpool's equaliser - and claimed that Spain striker Torres over-dramatised the clash with O'Shea that resulted in Steven Gerrard successfully converting a free-kick.

"I've watched it," Ferguson said. "Definitely, Torres made a meal of it, an absolute meal of it. There's no doubt he tried to get the player sent off."

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson revealed that he did not have a great view of the incident, but defended the performance of referee Howard Webb.

"Some of my coaches were jumping up and down but I didn't have a great view. Sir Alex was closer to it," Hodgson said.

"I thought the referee had a good game. Sir Alex is entitled to his opinion but I prefer to talk about things that interest me. I am not a fan of game saying."
