90+ mins : Final whistle marks the end of the game

88th min: GOAL! What are we witnessing!?

Roberto Firmino makes it seven as he sneaks the ball in at the near post – you couldn’t have a more popular scorer given the announcement about his future this week.

Delirium at Anfield.

83rd min: GOAL! It’s six!!! What a performance from Liverpool!

Salah pokes home from close range after De Gea palms one away and Anfield erupts yet again. Who could have seen this coming even at half-time?

79th minA raft of changes for Liverpool as they look to finish the job off.

James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Stefan Bajcetic take to the field, replacing Jordan Henderson, Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo and Fabinho.

75th min: /Liverpool lead 5-0!!!

Nunez joins Gakpo on a hat-trick as he produces a brilliant flicked header into the far corner after leaping highest to meet a cross.

73rd min: Rashford strikes the outside of the post after rounding Alisson – the angle always looked to be against him.

Can United salvage some pride in these final stages?

66th minGOAL! Salah makes it 4-0!!!

Liverpool’s chance seems to have gone when Nunez fails to pick out Elliott on the break, but the Uruguayan is first to the loose ball and pokes it into Salah, who smashes an unstoppable right-footed effort in off the bar.

This is some performance from Liverpool.

64th min: Liverpool just controlling the ball now and not giving United a sniff and the home fans are loving every minute of it.

58th minKonate heads just wide after meeting an Alexander-Arnold corner delivery and now Ten Hag is looking to his bench.

McTominay and Garnacho take the field, replacing Fred and Weghorst respectively.


56th min: Robertson fires a right-footed effort just wide with De Gea rooted after being teed up by Gakpo.

Liverpool want four.

50th min: GOAL! Liverpool are three up and cruising against their bitter rivals!

Gakpo doubles his personal tally in nonchantly dinking the ball over De Gea from the tightest of angles after being slipped in behind by Salah.

The Dutchman had in fact started the move at the edge of the Liverpool box, feeding his teammate to turn Martinez inside out before laying on the goal.

47th min: GOAL! Liverpool double their lead through Nunez!!!

It all starts with a sloppy Shaw pass deep in the United half and, though the visitors have several chances to get the ball away, they never manage it before Elliott smashes a right-footed cross in to give Nunez a simple header from close range.

United with it all to do now.

46th min: Liverpool get the game restarted.

HALF-TIME: The whistle sounds at the end of a great football half-time

Chances on
both sides and lots of intensity but Liverpool have the advantage thanks to Gakpo.

43 minutes: Goal! Liverpool scores the first goal!!!

That comes from Cody Gakpo sneaking in behind and on a Robertson headed pass that completely rips United’s lines before going past Varane and hammering the ball into the bottom corner.

A very good goal.

42 mins: Casemiro’s free-kick from the left, but it’s offside and the assistant’s flag is up.
The parties in the far corner were quickly broken up.

41st minute: Fabinho the first man in the book for a clip on Rashford’s heels on the left wing.

40th minute: Fernandes sends a free kick into the Liverpool penalty area from a promising box, but it is straight into the hands of Alisson.

33 mins : Dalot gets up to meet Shaw’s free-kick, but his header is aimed at Alisson. United are really growing in this game now and causing problems for Liverpool.

27 mins: And another great chance for the visitors, this time for in-form man Marcus Rashford.
Unfortunately for the Englishman, he squanders it by failing to make good contact with a perfectly weighted Shaw ball in the back.

26 minutes: Huge opportunity for United!

Fernandes hits a cross from Dalot with a header from the back post but he sneaks into the wrong side of the far post, slapping Alisson.

23 mins: Elliott and Robertson trade passes before the latter throws in a begging cross to be tapped by Nunez, but a brilliant challenge from Martinez denies the goal. 19 mins: Nunez takes a whirlwind try past the post after the ball goes down friendly but the flag is up and it wouldn’t have counted.

16 mins: Pinball in the box Unuted after a Robertson free-kick but it just won’t go down for Liverpool who can’t fire before the visitors clear

10th minute: Liverpool dominate possession in the early stages and close when Elliott sees a shot blocked right in the penalty area.
United’s threat was also underlined, however, when Antony forced Alisson into a save on his right after clipping the wing.

5 minutes: before kick-off: The teams arrive to a deafening welcome. It’s a huge game and there’s an atmosphere to it. 1st minute: Manchester United launches the match and attacks the end of the Kop in this first half.
