Ngog describes scoring against United his Best Moment

David Ngog admitted his injury-time goal against Manchester United was the best moment of his career so far.

The French striker came on as a substitute for Fernando Torres and netted a stoppage-time second goal at the Kop end in the 2-0 win over Manchester United.

It was a special moment for the Reds as not only did the result herald a return to winning ways, but it came in Rafael Benitez's 200th league game in charge.

"This was a fantastic moment for me and the team and I would say it's my best moment in football," the Reds No.24 told

"I have always dreamed of scoring a goal for Liverpool against Manchester United and now it has happened and it is a really good feeling.

"I dedicate this goal to my family who always support me and the Liverpool supporters. We know how much this victory means to our supporters.

"I also give thanks to my teammates and the manager for always showing faith in me.

"We know we have a lot of quality so this result means everything for the team. We have worked really hard together and I think we deserved to win."

The team spirit was epitomised when goalkeeper Pepe Reina joined in the celebrations for Ngog's goal when the three points were guaranteed Liverpool's way.

"I was surprised because the first person to celebrate with me was Pepe but that shows you just what this victory means for us," he added.

"This was a big moment for the team and everyone wanted this victory. It shows how good the team spirit and togetherness is."

Arsenal are up next in the Carling Cup and Ngog is hoping for a starting role after his match-winning exploits against Leeds United in the third round.

"We are looking forward to it and all I can do is keep working hard and show what I can do when I get the opportunity," said Ngog.

"I just want to do my best for the team."
