Liverpool v Man. Utd - as it happened
Thanks for joining me here today. See you soon for the Manchester City match.
FT: Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United. A typical top of the table clash with United staying top of the league. Liverpool stay 3rd.
Rashford is booked for a foul.
3 minutes added.
United sub: Bruno Fernandes off for Greenwood.
Liverpool sub: Wijnaldum off for Milner.
Liverpool sub: Origi on for Firmino.
What a save from Alisson. Wan-Bissaka finds Pogba in the box but Alisson dives and saves his very powerful shot.
Rashford is through two on one with Cavani but he tries to go himself and loses it. Very greedy.
Fabinho scuffs his effort from the edge of the box. It goes wide.
Thiago releases a shot from about 20 yards out that De Gea dives and parries.
Liverpool sub: Shaqiri off for Jones.
Shaw drills in the cross and Alisson saves with his foot from Bruno. Great reflex stop.
I did say at the start of this game that it will be decided by a mistake or moment of magic.
The corner comes in but Pogba heads straight at the keeper.
The last 0-0 between the two at Anfield was in 2017.
Fabinho is booked for a foul on Cavani.
Bruno has a shot from far out that is straight at Alisson.
Salah shoots from the centre of the box but it goes wide.
Manchester United sub: Cavani on for Martial.
This is a very very tight match. Liverpool will probably be disappointed if they don't win.
Alexander-Arnold has a shot from the edge of the box that is straight at De Gea.
United are doing some attacking of their own now.
A draw would be a good result for United that would keep them top.
Liverpool have started this half the strongest.
And we're back.
HT: Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United. The hosts have been the better side but they have only had one shot on target. All to play for in the second half.
1 minute added.
Liverpool have been the better side but there has only been one shot on target and it was an easy save from De Gea.
Looks like we will be heading in at the break 0-0.
Firmino has a shot from the centre of the box that is straight at the keeper.
Bruno Fernandes steps up and fires the ball just wide.
Shaw is fouled by Shaqiri at the edge of the box. A good chance for United.
This a typical top of the table clash. Very close.
No shots on target yet in this match though.
Another chance falls for Shaqiri but again it's over. United aren't getting a sniff.
This time Salah has a shot from outside the box that goes wide.
Shaqiri has a deflected shot from the edge of the box that goes wide.
Firmino has a shot from the edge of the box that goes far wide.
Perhaps the difference in this match will be a mistake or a moment of magic.
The ball breaks for Robertson in the box but he fires it well over.
United's next match is away to Fulham on Wednesday while Liverpool are at home to Brighton on Thursday.
No real chances yet. Just that cross that hit the side netting. This could be a crucial match in the title race.
Good break from United up the park. They are looking to do some attacking of their own now.
The Reds are having all the ball so far.
Robertson looks for a cross but it's into the side netting.
And we're off.
Minute's applause for Gerry Marsden, He was the singer of the Liverpool anthem: You'll Never Walk Alone.
Henderson and Firmino were the only two Liverpool players involved that day. De Gea and Martial were present for United.
I said the last time that United won at Anfield was 2016. It was on 17th January... that is today's date.
This is a real test of United's title credentials this afternoon. United stay top with a draw. A United win will see Liverpool drop to 4th and could end the weekend in 5th if City beat Palace. A Liverpool win takes them top.
Liverpool won the last match at Anfield almost a year ago to the day. United haven't won at Anfield since 2016.
Bailly, Cavani and Matic are the three players to make way from the win over Burnley for Lindelof, Fred and McTominay.
Liverpool make one change from their last league match against Southampton. Oxlade-Chamberlian drops out for Shaqiri.
Manchester United XI: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred; McTominay, Pogba; Fernandes; Rashford, Martial.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Henderson, Fabinho, Robertson; Shaqiri, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
