  1. Thanks for tuning in this afternoon. Stay with us for the full match report and all the reaction.

  2. That's it. Manchester United beat 10-man Liverpool 2-1.

  3. 90+7

    Suarez goes down in these late minutes but no free-kick is given by the ref.

  4. 90+6

    Welbeck goes down in the middle of the park for a quick United free-kick. It looks just about over at Anfield.

  5. 90+5

    Hernandez tries his luck with a shot from distance but doesn't trouble Reina. A Liverpool comeback looks unlikely now.

  6. 90+4

    The defender gets back to his feet and walks gingerly to the side and down the tunnel. All the subs have been used so Liverpool are at a two-man disadvantage for this final minute.

  7. 90+3

    Now Kelly is down and reaching for his knee after turning awkwardly and landing on it. More bad news for Brendan Rodgers.

  8. 90+2

    The Red Devils have a free-kick in midfield after Henderson's challenge on Evans is punished by the ref.

  9. 90+1

    United are in possession, happy to trade passes and keep Liverpool at bay in these dying stages.

  10. 90

    Van Persie wins a corner on the left for United as the minutes trickle down. Giggs' short corner is knocked out for a throw. Five extra minutes are added.

  11. 89

    Welbeck comes on for Rafael, with Ferguson obviously wanting to take no risks over his fitness.

  12. 88

    The Reds are building from the back, trying to mount an attack but lose the ball to Carrick. Evra tries a run but is caught by Kelly for a United free-kick.

  13. 87

    Johnson and Rafael tussle in midfield and the throw-in goes to United, but is put straight out for a Reds throw.

  14. 86

    Suso's corner is a disappointing one and it's cut out by Van Persie. The ball goes back to Lindegaard for a free-kick.

  15. 85

    Rafael is receiving treatment now after colliding with Allen, but is helped back to his feet and limps to the side. He's absent for Liverpool's corner.

  16. 84

    Van Persie slides in with a challenge on Suso to fire up the Liverpool crowd, and earns himself a booking.

  17. 83

    Liverpool come close to grabbing an equaliser as Johnson's tidy ball into the box is greeted by Kelly but he can't get enough on his header.

  18. 82

    Hernandez has come on for Kagawa in another United swap.

  19. Reina makes a really good effort at stopping it, diving the right way and getting a touch, but Van Persie's powerful shot to the right finds the back of the net.

  20. 81
