Michael Higdon and Chris Humphrey gave the visitors a 2-0 lead after just 10 minutes before Jon Daly pulled one back for the home side before half-time.

McCall's side survived a barrage of second half pressure to clinch all three points and gain revenge for their defeat to United earlier in the month.

"I think they'll probably feel a bit hard done to and that they deserved a point, similar to how we felt following the game they won at Fir Park," said McCall.

"We all know Dundee United are capable of fighting back and the goal before half-time gave them a lift.

"The second half we had to show a bit of grit and dig deep, we knew that we would have to defend well to get anything and with a young defence we did fantastically to get the win.

"It was a great bit of vision from Henrik Ojamaa to pick out Chris Humphrey and he took a good touch before producing a fantastic finish - it was a goal worth of winning any game."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
