93'
FT: Liverpool 2-0 Man Utd. A terrific match is finished with Salah's goal. United could have equalised as they and Liverpool both squandered several chances as the hosts go 16 points clear!!
93'
Salah is booked for taking his top off in the celebration. He won't be caring as Alisson runs the whole length of the park to celebrate.
93'
What a way to end the match. All United players are up the park, Alisson punts it up to Salah who runs with it and slots it past De Gea. 2-0!!!
92'
SALAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
90'
As you'd expect United are doing all the attacking, but everything that comes into the box, Van Dijk heads away.
90'
3 minutes added time.
90'
And it leads to nothing.
89'
United corner. Can they coonjure up something here?
87'
United sub: Dalot on for Shaw.
85'
Liverpool aren't in a rush to take throw-ins etc, still a long way left though.
83'
Liverpool sub: Mané off for Fabinho.
83'
Liverpool sub: Firmino off for Origi.
79'
United are trying to get that all-important equaliser here.
74'
United sub: Greenwood on for Williams.
74'
United sub: Pereira off for Mata.
72'
Shaw is booked for a foul on Salah as he was breaking.
68'
This time Fred has a shot from around the same distance straight at Alisson but he can only parry away.
67'
Another United chance. Martial has a shot from 25 yards out straight at Alisson.
67'
Just as Oxlade-Chamberlain gets taken off he doesn't look very happy.
66'
Liverpool sub: Lallana on for Oxlade-Chamberlain.
64'
Looks like Lallana will be coming on for Liverpool.
63'
Great play from Wijnaldum to knock it by Maguire. He then passes to Mané who runs into the box and shoots, but it trundles wide.
61'
If Liverpool don't make the most of their chances then United will always be in the match. Martial should have scored that chance.
59'
Martial misses a golden chance. Martial plays a one-two with Pereria, and from about 12 yards out Martial somehow manages to blaze it over the bar when it was a lot easier to get the shot on target.
59'
Of course, both sides are in league action during the week with United ta home to Burnley and Liverpool away to Wolves.
57'
Fred runs with the ball and from just inside the box he puts it wide.
55'
Liverpool really are a delight to watch, their attacking play is just amazing.
52'
Oxlade-Chamberlain has a shot that De Gea saves comfortably.
51'
Liverpool are all over United here. It could easily be 3 or 4.
49'
Attack after attack for the hosts at the minute. Henderson runs with it, and from the edge of the box cracks the post. As I watch the replay I can see that De Gea got a touch to it so it was a great save.
48'
Mané skies over the bar from inside the box.
47'
Great chance for Liverpool. Mané sends Robertson down the left, the Scot crosses in and Salah just has to side foot it past De Gea but he hits the ball off his right foot with his left foot and it trundles wide.
46'
And we're back!!!
45'
HT: Liverpool 1-0 Man Utd. Liverpool have been the better side and are in front through Van Dijk's header, but United could have leveled if Pereira had scored that golden chance. All to play for in the 2nd half.
45'
2 minutes added time.
45'
WHAT A SAVE DE GEA!!!! Mané is played through and from 10 yards out hits a bullet shot that De Gea saves with his right foot.
44'
Another United chance. Pereira has a shot from the edge of the box that Alisson gathers comfortbaly.
41'
SITTER FROM UNITED. Martial crosses in to Wan-Bissaka, he knocks it back across goal and from just a few yards out Pereira can't connect properly and it goes wide.
40'
First chance for United. Fred plays it to Martial at the edge of the box, but he fires wide.
36'
Oxlade-Chamberlain plays Wijnaldum through and he sides foot past De Gea, but he is narrowly offside. No complaints at all.
34'
Quite a physical game but the referee is letting play go on and the game flow which is good.
31'
United started fairly well but since then Liverpool have been all over them.
27'
Liverpool are dominating. The ball is played to Salah who crosses into the advancing Firmono who can't connect properly and puts it wide.
26'
De Gea was thus booked for his protests after VAR got involved.
26'
In the build-up to the goal, Van Dijk and De Gea jump for the ball, but the keeper is fouled. It eventually ends up with Firmino who curls a beauty into the net from inside the box. Still 1-0.
25'
FIRMINOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
24'
The ball break to Mané in the box and just before he shoots, Lindelof intercepts and puts it out for a corner.
20'
Liverpool are the ones that are controlling things now.
18'
Alexander-Arnold crosses in the free-kick and Van Dijk is inches from connecting, he looks up for it today.
17'
Now I wonder how that will affect United's game plan. They started well but that will have knocked their confidence a bit.
15'
Alexander-Arnold swings in the corner and Van Dijk gets above everyone and bullets his header past De Gea. 1-0 United!!!
14'
VAAAAAAAN DIJK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12'
United have started this match very lively. Could be an interesting match.
8'
First chance of the match. From the resulting free-kick Alexander-Arnold crosses in but Mané heads wide.
8'
Matic is booked for a high foot.
8'
Still no chances yet but United are slightly on top.
4'
Quite a lively start from both teams as they try and gain a foothold.

You'll Never Walk Alone is being played, what an amazing atmosphere for one of the best matches on the planet.

Teams are in the tunnel.

From that day, the only Liverpool players to be in the squad today are Henderson, Firmino and Lallana; for United De Gea, Lingard, Martial, Mata, Pereira and Romero remain.
Prev.
Liverpool have also only lost 3 home league games since 17th January 2016. That day they lost to Man United 1-0. A sign???
Prev.
Incredibly Liverpool have won every league game this season bar 1. That game was against Manchester United, but the Reds haven't dropped points at home in the league since 30th January 2019, and haven't lost at home in the league since April 2017.
Prev.
And United are here.
Prev.
The boys are back in town.
Prev.
Great news for Liverpool. Burnley have beaten Leicester 2-1 so both City and Leicester have dropped points...
Prev.
These sides faced each other on this day in 1918. Liverpool won 5-2 at Anfield that day... will history repeat itself??
Prev.
The last meeting between these two ended in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. Liverpool one the last match at Anfield in 2018, while United last one at Anfield in 2016.
Prev.
Not good news United fans...
Prev.
Man United XI: De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams, Fred, Matic, James, Andreas Pereira, Shaw, Martial.
Prev.
Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.
