Let’s Go 


Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United

FULL-TIME: Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United

A wonderful week for Liverpool comes to a close. First, a victory over the champions. Now, three points against a side who were level with them before this result. Again it was down to a well-worked corner, with Jenna Clark getting the crucial touch from a teasing Höbinger ball towards the far post at the end of the first half.

Liverpool’s Jenna Clark celebrates scoring what ended up being the winning goal.

90+5 min: Micah delivers another fine save off a Malard hit inside the box, though the offside flag was up.

90+3 min: Blundell is back on her feet as Zelem delivers … and Malard’s header is tipped away by Micah! A superb save from the keeper moving to her left.

90+2 min: Blundell goes down for United and is in a bit of bother as Zelem stands over a free-kick inside Liverpool’s half.

90+1 min: Somehow, my stream is back on, and we’ve got five minutes added on.

76 min: United are still searching for an equaliser. I’m still waiting for the FA Player to sort itself out.

63 min: Zelem delivers a corner from the right and a United header travels wide. And, ugh, the FA Player has once again decided to play up.

15.25 BST

62 min: Enderby is gifted a poor United pass and advances towards the D, where she launches a fine, curling effort, looking for the top right corner. It just travels over.

15.23 BST

61 min: Earps collects calmly as Haug whips in a teasing ball from the right into the United box.

15.22 BST

60 min: Changes for United: Parris and Evans make way for Williams and Riviere.

15.20 BST

57 min: And we’re back. A quick scan through the Twittersphere suggests I wasn’t the only one. Liverpool still lead 1-0.

15.17 BST

Annoyingly, my FA Player has seized up and isn’t working. Trying find my IT hat and figure out a solution.

HALF-TIME: Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United

Not a half of football that will live long in the memory, but Liverpool couldn’t care less – they’ve nicked a late goal to be the happier side at the break.

14.49 BST

GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United (Clark 45+3)

Another set-piece goal for Liverpool!

14.47 BST

45+2 min: Six minutes added on, by the way.

14.46 BST

45+1 min: Höbinger turns and shoots from outside the box for Liverpool … it flies straight into the arms of Earps.

14.45 BST

45 min: Hinds sends in a free-kick from the right that Evans heads away at the far post.

14.44 BST

43 min: Hinds reads a stray pass on the left and intercepts but quickly loses it to a United throw. That sums up events so far, neither side unable to really string together a sustained period on the ball.

14.41 BST

41 min: Huge chance for United! García plays a delicious cut-back from the right and Toone’s run from midfield into the box is perfectly timed … but her finish flies over the bar.

14.39 BST

39 min: Koivisto is back up on her feet which is good to see. Play resumes.

14.39 BST

Matt Beard is sent off!

Liverpool’s head coach has been shown a red card by the referee! Seems like he said something after Koivisto went down, and that’s landed him in a bit of bother.

14.37 BST

37 min: Koivisto is down after colliding with an advertising board out on the right.

36 min: Clark cleans up at the back for Liverpool after García chases a ball over the top. The United forward was offside anyway.

14.35 BST

34 min: Both sides gift each other the ball rather easily as Holland pings in a cross from the left that is dealt with by United’s defence.

14.33 BST

32 min: United’s brightest bit of play so far as Le Tissier pings a ball into the middle before García is played in to cross from the right. No one is there on the end of it.


19 min: Höbinger delivers a Liverpool corner from the right – it’s low and booted away for a throw. Liverpool work it back into the box as United’s defence goes to sleep, with Koivisto popping out of nowhere to get on the end of a bouncing ball … she heads on to the post and can’t react quick enough for the rebound, sending it wide.

14.17 BST

17 min: Now it’s Earps’ turn to show off her work; the ball drops kindly for Holland on the edge after a Liverpool free-kick into the box is diverted away, and Earps moves to her left to palm away the effort.

15 min: … Micah saves again! Naalsund gets a head on the corner, it’s blocked in the mix of shirts and Turner launches a powerful hit through the traffic that the Liverpool keeper gets in the way of.

14.14 BST

14 min: Fisk’s clearance goes wrong, providing United with a corner.

14.13 BST

13 min: Holland displays the first real bit of quality in the game, pulling off a neat turn in midfield before launching a left-footed hit from range that just went over Earps and the bar.

14.12 BST

12 min: Hinds hassles down the left for Liverpool but can’t stop United from collecting a goal kick. Earps’ flat hit is poor and meets a Liverpool head as the ball stays in the United half.

14.10 BST

10 min: Holland skips down the left for Liverpool before Hinds has a go from outside the box, Earps saving after an awkward bounce in front of her.

14.09 BST

9 min: Earps collects easily from the free-kick. This game is lacking in rhythm at the moment.

14.08 BST

8 min: Liverpool win a free-kick out on the left and are going to try and pump it long into the box.

14.07 BST

7 min: Evans pushes forward to disrupt Koivisto but Liverpool survive United’s high press and win a free-kick in the centre circle.

14.05 BST

4 min: Koivisto crunches into Evans on the right-hand side for Liverpool before United work it back to Earps. And then, suddenly, Galton finds herself slipped in, one on one, with Micah to beat inside the box. The United No 11 fires straight at the keeper, her effort lacking in power and accuracy. United really should be one up.

14.02 BST

2 min: A scrappy opening minute is followed by United winning a free-kick in the centre circle. Long punts and little on the floor to begin with.

14.00 BST


United get things underway, moving from right to left on my screen.

13.58 BST

The players bump fists, You’ll Never Walk Alone rings around Prenton Park. We’re a couple minutes away from kick-off.

13.40 BST

Sarah Rendell’s got an eye on the title fight. Can Arsenal do Emma Hayes a massive favour (even if that means the Gunners briefly move ahead of Chelsea)?

Manchester United 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool fought back from conceding an early goal to earn a surprise win over Manchester United, the women’s side’s first-ever win over their rivals. Ella Toone slotted home in just the third minute, before Melvine Malard fired into the side netting with the goal at her mercy moments later.

The hosts were punished for not taking more of their chances in the 33rd minute, as Melissa Lawley’s fine cross from the right was headed into her own goal by Millie Turner, under pressure from Emma Koivisto. Turner made amends in the second half, blocking Ceri Holland’s shot, but Liverpool did go ahead in the 68th minute.

From a corner, substitute Shanice van de Sanden’s delivery caused chaos in the United defence and the Liverpool captain, Taylor Hinds, hooked the ball home. After a lengthy stoppage for a head injury to Gemma Bonner, who was helped off the pitch, Katie Zelem went closest to a leveller with a fierce shot, parried away by Teagan Micah.

Marc Skinner is next to talk, and he offers a scathing assessment of his United side’s performance. “We lost on the fundamentals. Liverpool are not nice to play against, and we didn’t match that – we were too passive in the final third.

“You can play all the pretty football you want, you need to win headers. It’s not good enough. We can’t blame fatigue. It’s desire to win the ball, to go and compete. We can’t be beaten like that. When they come back from the break, they had better be fired up.”

Post-game thoughts from Taylor Hinds: “It feels amazing, this game is another derby for us. You can see how happy our fans are, which means everything to us. We’ve put [the 6-0 defeat last season] way behind us – you can see we’ve added a lot to this team.

On the goal, she says: “Normally I’m on the edge of the box, but I had a feeling I would score today!” On Gemma Bonner’s injury, she adds: “I haven’t heard anything, the fact she walked off the pitch … hopefully she’ll be alright. She’s a tough girl.”

Full time: Manchester United 1-2 Liverpool

It was tight but Liverpool just about deserved the victory in the end. United were a long way from their best, especially considering they took the lead so early on but Liverpool recovered after their slow start.

Manchester United Women travel to rivals Liverpool on Sunday afternoon for our penultimate game of the 2023/24 WSL season.

A positive result at Prenton Park could be vital as both sides are level on 35 points in the WSL, with United currently fourth ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool on goal difference.

Marc Skinner’s side are unbeaten in our last four matches following last weekend’s 1-0 victory at Leicester. Ella Toone’s wonder strike in the closing stages proved to be the difference at the King Power Stadium.

Keep reading for our preview of Sunday’s encounter, including how to follow the action, team news and more…

Sunday’s fixture is scheduled to kick off at 14:00 BST with live radio commentary available on MUTV, and the United App.

You will also be able to find team news in our app, followed by regular updates during the 90 minutes and a match report after the full-time whistle, plus post-match reaction from Skinner and the players.

Fans in the UK and certain international territories can view the match live on the FA Player. More information on if the fixture is available to watch in your country can be found here.


Although tickets have sold out for our visit to Prenton Park, you can still secure your seat for United’s final game of the season against Chelsea at Old Trafford, on Saturday 18 May.

Seats for the clash with Emma Hayes’s side are available to purchase via our ticketing site.


Skinner revealed in his press conference prior to the Leicester game last week that full-back Jayde Riviere could be available to face Liverpool.

The Canada international has missed our last four matches after picking up an injury during the Manchester derby in March.

The boss said: “Jayde Riviere is back training individually. So she’s back on the field and training. Hopefully, we can get her back in next week to be in contention for the Liverpool game.”

For the home side, goalkeeper Rachael Laws and forward Shanice van de Sanden are both expected to miss the rest of the season through injury.

Club captain Niamh Fahey is a doubt for Sunday after suffering a setback in training following a calf problem, while defender Jasmine Matthews recently recovered from a hamstring issue.

United may be boosted by the return of Riviere on Sunday.

Liverpool were involved in a seven-goal thriller on Wednesday, as they edged out Chelsea 4-3 on home soil. Defender Gemma Bonner scored two of her side’s goals, including an injury-time winner.

Our opponents this weekend have won six of their last 10 matches across all competitions, with two draws and two defeats during that period.

The Merseysiders can be proud of their achievements this season, which is only their second year back in the WSL, after winning promotion to the top flight in 2022.

As previously mentioned, they are battling United for fourth spot in the league table, and they reached the Adobe Women’s FA Cup quarter-finals before exiting at the hands of Leicester.

United Women’s U21s win national title

In the reverse league fixture at Leigh Sports Village in December, Toone’s early strike put United ahead before the visitors mounted a comeback to win 2-1.

However, the Reds do have a victory to our name over Matt Beard’s side this campaign, as Nikita Parris netted the only goal in a Continental Tyres League Cup tie in November.

United will be looking to keep up our strong record on our travels against Liverpool, having won three of our four previous trips to Prenton Park, all by a 1-0 scoreline.

One of the standout fixtures between the two sides is our 6-0 home triumph in the WSL last season, which included goals from Lucia Garcia, Hayley Ladd and Rachel Williams.
