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

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

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

    90+7
  • Welbeck goes down in the middle of the park for a quick United free-kick. It looks just about over at Anfield.

    90+6
  • Hernandez tries his luck with a shot from distance but doesn't trouble Reina. A Liverpool comeback looks unlikely now.

    90+5
  • 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.

    90+4
  • Now Kelly is down and reaching for his knee after turning awkwardly and landing on it. More bad news for Brendan Rodgers.

    90+3
  • The Red Devils have a free-kick in midfield after Henderson's challenge on Evans is punished by the ref.

    90+2
  • United are in possession, happy to trade passes and keep Liverpool at bay in these dying stages.

    90+1
  • 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.

    90
  • Welbeck comes on for Rafael, with Ferguson obviously wanting to take no risks over his fitness.

    89
  • 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.

    88
  • Johnson and Rafael tussle in midfield and the throw-in goes to United, but is put straight out for a Reds throw.

    87
  • 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.

    86
  • 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.

    85
  • Van Persie slides in with a challenge on Suso to fire up the Liverpool crowd, and earns himself a booking.

    84
  • 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.

    83
  • Hernandez has come on for Kagawa in another United swap.

    82
  • 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.

  • GOAL! ROBIN VAN PERSIE!
