6.55pm GMT 18:55

Full-time: Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool

Bruno Fernandes’ free-kick won it for United, and it came just as they were rocking. Mohamed Salah’s two goals were in vain. And Ole has his first win over Liverpool. That was a great game, football the winner, as was the FA Cup.

6.53pm GMT 18:53

90+3 min: Trent takes, and there’s a crowd scene. Pogba heads back out, and Salah’s shot is well wide. It would have been miraculous if he had scored from that.

6.52pm GMT 18:52

90+2 min: Liverpool pushing on and on. And United back and keeping their shape, and pushing up too. Jones escapes down the wing and is legged up by Pogba. A free-kick in a dangerous position.

6.50pm GMT 18:50

90 min: There will be four minutes of time added on. Pogba and Wan-Bissaka have to play head tennis to clear some Liverpool danger. Origi goes down, and that delays matters. He will be OK to continue.

6.49pm GMT 18:49

89 min: United making use of the counter. And Cavani rattles the post from a superb cross from Fernandes. That would have sealed it. Then, Lindelof is booked for a foul on Origi that stops a Liverpool counter.

6.47pm GMT 18:47

87 min: United are up in numbers but Martial is lax. He attempts a dummy when the best advice would be to retain possession. That takes Liverpool back down the other end.

6.46pm GMT 18:46

86 min: United change: Rashford off and Martial on. Rasha heads down the tunnel with something of a limp. A worry for Ole.

6.44pm GMT 18:44

85 min: Liverpool try to find their way back in. A chip for Origii finds its way to Henderson in United’s goal.

6.42pm GMT 18:42

83 min: Wan-Bissaka cuts off a ball aimed for a bursting Mané. It’s a Liverpool corner. Shaqiri’s kick is cleared. The ball comes out to Milner who drifts his pass over everyone.

Updated at 6.43pm GMT

6.41pm GMT 18:41

82 min: Off go Thiago and Firmino, on come Origi and Shaqiri,

6.41pm GMT 18:41

81 min: Rashford’s shot saved by Alisson from a Wan-Bissaka cross, though the offside flag was up. Wan-Bissaka then buccaneers up the right on a jinking run, only for the ball to be cleared.

6.39pm GMT 18:39

79 min: Pogba’s movement in the wall opened up space and Alisson was beaten. Might he have done better?

6.38pm GMT 18:38

Goal! Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool (Fernandes, 78)

Cavani is pulled down as he spins off Fabinho. Free-kick chance on the edge of the box. Bruno will take this one. He talks to himself - or a higher power - as he prepares himself. There is a lengthy delay and he scores...that’s brilliant.

Updated at 6.40pm GMT

6.35pm GMT 18:35

75 min: Snapshot from Salah, as he cuts in from the right and tries to beat Henderson at the near post. Henderson is equal to that one.

6.33pm GMT 18:33

74 min: Trent tries to get Mané in with a Rashford-style pass. It whistles past. Then Pogba charges along and his cross is straight at Alisson. It’s a poor cross and Pogba yelps in anguish.

Updated at 6.34pm GMT

6.32pm GMT 18:32

72 min: Thiago volleys over after Firmino causes real problems for United’s defence. They just can’t get out of their own half.

6.30pm GMT 18:30

71 min: Bruno tries one? Or does he? It was a cross aimed for Cavani and it had Alisson scrabbling.

6.29pm GMT 18:29

70 min: A yellow card for Mané when he follows through in a tackle on Fred. Had he lost control? Perhaps. An orange card for me, Clive.

6.28pm GMT 18:28

69 min: Cavani is chasing shadows on his own up front. United just can’t get a grip up there. Liverpool have been so crisp in their passing.

6.27pm GMT 18:27

67 min: Firmino releases Salah and it takes a good save from Henderson to clear the danger. Perhaps Salah might have played in Mané but he was on a hat-trick.

6.25pm GMT 18:25

66 min: Here we go. Bruno comes on, as does Fred. Off go Van de Beek and Mason Greenwood.

6.24pm GMT 18:24

65 min: The stats tell us that Liverpool have had 78% of possession in the last ten minutes.

6.23pm GMT 18:23

64 min: United’s turn to try and build up patiently. Shaw’s pass inside catches Van de Beek unawares. He will surely make way for Bruno soon enough.

6.22pm GMT 18:22

62 min: Off goes Wijnaldum, on comes Mané to get the band back together. Whither Bruno?

6.21pm GMT 18:21

61 min: Thiago sets up Trent, and he warms the hands of Henderson. Liverpool want another. And Mané is imminent too.

6.20pm GMT 18:20

60 min: Liverpool just let out the throttle again and got their reward. Both teams have been ruthless in punishing defensive mistakes.

6.19pm GMT 18:19

Goal! Manchester United 2-2 Liverpool (Salah, 59)

Maguire’s pass catches Cavani napping, and Liverpool push on. Milner’s stepover allows Salah a shot on goal. It goes through Henderson’s legs.

Updated at 6.23pm GMT

6.17pm GMT 18:17

58 min: United appear happy to sit back on and wait for the counter. It’s been a successful policy so far...but Milner suddenly finds a way through. Firmino nods on from Thiago and Milner misses badly.

Updated at 6.18pm GMT

6.15pm GMT 18:15

56 min: Liverpool play some patient passing. That was their route to goal in the first half but United get back in numbers. Liverpool’s movement is lacking compared to their opponent.

6.13pm GMT 18:13

54 min: United have also gained control of midfield. Rashford finds Cavani, whose flick is on to Greenwood, who has to check back but there is clearly an keen understanding between United’s forwards.

Updated at 6.14pm GMT

6.12pm GMT 18:12

52 min: Fabinho falls and in doing so his leg catches Rashford. There’s a contretemps but the ref waves play back on.

6.10pm GMT 18:10

50 min: Not to scapegoat, and he’s a young player of real promise but Rhys Williams has made a number of errors and keeps ending up on the deck. Liverpool need centre-backs.

6.09pm GMT 18:09

49 min: Very similar goals from United, very similar mistakes from Liverpool.

6.09pm GMT 18:09

Goal! Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool (Rashford, 48)

Greenwood’s ball is perfect, and Williams drops a howler to let Rashford through to finish so confidently.

Updated at 6.12pm GMT

6.07pm GMT 18:07

48 min: It’s started at a similar pace to how it finished the first half, which is good. Extra time not wanted by either team.

6.06pm GMT 18:06

47 min: Chris gets in touch: “Re. David Peru. Haven’t Coronavirus restrictions sucked enough joy out of life already? Do we really need to prevent 20 year olds in peak physical condition from hugging, when they’ve been jostling in the six yard box just moments earlier? What’s the point?”

Ian Copestake says: “Players are in a bubble. They can French kiss in celebration if they wish.”

Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles may disagree with some of that.

6.05pm GMT 18:05

46 min: And back away we go...

6.02pm GMT 18:02

By the way, this game has been 10 times better than last week’s sludge. See, the FA Cup can be magic.

5.59pm GMT 17:59

Adam Roberts says he can’t be the only United fan who:

“1) at 42 minutes thought ‘that’s the choice - Pogba or Shaw?’
2) has his heart in his mouth every time Pogba doesn’t unload quickly and lingers on the ball. He is so frustrating.”

5.53pm GMT 17:53

Some FA Cup reports:

5.52pm GMT 17:52

David Peru makes a serious point: “Why is no-one complaining about footballers hugging in couples and groups? Guidelines have been issued, yet there is no attempt to stop the practice by the match officials, the coaching staffs or even to mention it by commentators. Introduce fines or bookings and it will soon stop.”

Robert Lin comes in praise: “Not a ManU fan but it’s nice to see Mason Greenwood back on the scoresheet. Hopefully he can push on from here and rekindle the form he showed last season.”

Malc in Germany: “If this game gets abandoned because of bad behaviour (Ole slapping Jürgen, for example) would the replay be played behind closed doors?”

And Mary Waltz: “I understand. The economic benefits of the Champions League and the PL title has relegated the FA cup to the sidelines. I know this is a business. But the romantic in me mourns this spitting on tradition and in the long run football is poorer for it. Some things shouldn’t be judged solely by spreadsheets and accountants.”

5.49pm GMT 17:49

Half-time: Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool

Two great finishes from two players who had previously been out of scoring touch. After Mason Greenwood’s equaliser, United have been the better team, the more threatening team. Luke Shaw has been great.

5.48pm GMT 17:48

45 min+1: One minute added on in which Greenwood tees up Pogba to shoot wide.

5.46pm GMT 17:46

44 min: McTominay escapes from Jones, Shaw gets to the byline, and the cross into the centre causes chaos. McTominay arrives on the scene and his shot is blocked by a raft of Liverpool defenders. It was numbers rather than organisation that kept him out.

5.44pm GMT 17:44

42 min: Fabinho is caught by a poor Alisson pass. He fouls Greenwood, it was heavy one. He is booked for that, deservedly so. United free-kick in a dangerous position. No Bruno to take it. Pogba takes instead but it’s well wide.

5.42pm GMT 17:42

40 min: Liverpool get a corner and United deal with that a little more comfortably than the opposing defence. Milner smashes wide on the rebound.

5.40pm GMT 17:40

39 min: Rashford falls over Thiago as he makes a burst on to the ball after another attack set up by a flying Shaw. United looking more confident now if still a little short of fluency.

5.39pm GMT 17:39

37 min: Shaw, who has been busy, now forces another United corner. He takes it and McTominay heads over. United are winning the ball every time at set pieces. That’s what happens when all your centre backs are crocked.

5.37pm GMT 17:37

35 min: A slight delay as Rashford gets to his feet. Luke Shaw whips in a cross. Williams heads behind. Shaw takes the corner and Pogba is free and heads wide. That was a big chance.

5.35pm GMT 17:35

33 min: Maguire forced to knock behind when a ball is lofted to Firmino. Liverpool take the corner quickly and lose the ball almost as quickly. Thiago fouls Rashford.

5.32pm GMT 17:32

31 min: Liverpool much the crisper in midfield still. Thiago leading that effort, and Klopp has been asking his players to give him the ball.

5.31pm GMT 17:31

30 min: There are those who say Marcus Rashford isn’t very good at passing, lacks vision. Those two passes - for Greenwood and then Van de Beek - rather disprove such theories.

5.30pm GMT 17:30

28 min: Van de Beek sent through by Rashford, and he falls down and cries out for a penalty. Liverpool’s players are not impressed by that.

5.29pm GMT 17:29

27 min: A fine goal from United, wholly against the run of play. Andy Robertson tried to put Greenwood off by shouting in his ear.

5.28pm GMT 17:28

Goal! Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool (Greenwood, 26)

Paul Pogba starts the move with a great tackle. Van de Beek to Rashford, whose pass goes all the way to Greenwood on the opposite flank. He doesn’t miss from there.

Updated at 5.32pm GMT

5.27pm GMT 17:27

25 min: Thiago and Rashford clash of heads. No, in fact, Thiago caught Rasha with his elbow. Accidentally, it should be added.

5.26pm GMT 17:26

24 min: Jones felled by McTominay, and a free-kick in a dangerous position. There’s a few candidates for this one, to be taken from the left-hand side. Trent takes, and it’s over. He still looks a little off it.
