Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he feared his Manchester United team would not get anything from their thrilling match against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Dimitar Berbatov scored twice to give United the lead but Steven Gerrard scored a penalty and a free-kick to level the scores.
However, Berbatov completed his hat-trick to give United a 3-2 win which Ferguson thought was the least his team deserved from the Barclays Premier League contest.
The Scot said: "From thinking to myself `it's going to be 10' we ended up at 2-2. It was a travesty of a scoreline then - but a great result at the end.
"They (Liverpool) didn't offer anything and depended on decisions from the linesman to get back in the game.
"Edwin van der Sar had no saves to make, Paul Scholes controlled the midfield and we looked dangerous up front with Dimitar and Nani - I couldn't see us losing the game."
