93’ FULL TIME: It's 0-0 at Anfield.
90’ There will be three minutes off added time at the end of the second half.
86’ United get their foot on the ball at just the right time. The quality shown by them on the ball - bar the Lukaku chance - has been woeful, as just described by Gary Neville on commentary.
83’ Sturridge wins a free-kick off Matic after a clever shimmy. Henderson tries to hang one up to the back post but Sturridge can't get any real purchase on the effort. Dribbles wide.
81’ Oxlade-Chamberlain speeds away down the right and flicks a ball over for Sturridge to attack. Jones gets there first. United clear their lines again.
79’ Substitution: Double change for Liverpool. Mo Salah and Philippe Coutinho are withdrawn for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Daniel Sturridge.
75’ Booking: Smalling gets too tight to Salah on the half-way line. It's taken 75 minutes but we have our first caution.
74’ Woeful set-piece from Herrera. With Matic, Jones and Smalling waiting he hoofs a free-kick from 40 yards straight out for a goal-kick. So poor.
71’ Only one team wants to win this one. Coutinho flicks a lovely ball to Firmino down the inside left. Salah darts to the back post and Firmino tries to find him with a looped cross. Salah needed to be a few inches higher.... it goes out for a goal kick.
68’ Firmino breaks into space down the left. He has support in the middle. It's a clever cross which deceives Jones but the ball rolls across the face and straight into the arms of De Gea.
66’ Liverpool still doing the pressing. Salah works himself into space about 25 yards out. He tries a flashy effort but it flies well wide of De Gea's goal.
65’ Substitution: Mkhitaryan is replaced by Lingard.
61’ Coutinho is running the show. He dances past three United men on the edge of the box. Herrera takes a bit of a swipe and gets nowhere near the ball. Coutinho stays on his feet then goes down a couple of seconds later. Nothing given - but replays showed He
57’ Chance! Gomez doesn't waste any time getting the ball in the box. Jones and Smalling are nowhere and Can meets the cross from 10 yards. It's a shocking finish though as he awkwardly punts the ball over the crossbar. That was Liverpool's best chance of the
55’ Liverpool dominating here. Coutinho links with Firmino before striking an effort from 25 yards. It's blocked by Herrera into Wijnaldum's path but he hooks a lobbed effort from 18 yards over the crossbar.
51’ Coutinho finds space again. He jinks into a dangerous area and Firmino bursts in behind....he looks the for the pass but the ball deflects straight to De Gea.
49’ Klopp is liking what he sees here. Coutinho again moves into space off the left. He hits an effort from 20 yards which deflects off Valencia and thumps into the side netting. De Gea had it covered, mind.
48’ Liverpool open up United down the left. Coutinho twists and turns in the box. His cross deflects into the six yard box towards Firmino who is beaten to the ball by Smalling. The ball then nearly drops to Salah for the tap-in but the linesman's flag cuts s
46’ HALF TIME: We're goalless at the break.
46’ SECOND HALF: Back underway at Anfield for the second 45.
45’ There will be one minute of stoppage time.
44’ Save! Lukaku breaks through the middle and finds plenty of space to fire one goal. Can he finish? Nope, Mignolet stands tall to beat it away.
43’ Great feet by Coutinho, who takes on four defenders on the edge of the box. He then accelerates past Young, who is tempted to leave a leg out but makes no contact. Coutinho's cross is cleared.
41’ Chance! Firmino makes things happen down the right. He moves the ball inside to Salah, who takes on the half-volley from 22 yards. Straight at De Gea.
39’ United break again down the right. Young wins a corner but it comes to nothing.
37’ Lukaku shows his frustration down the flank by leaving a late one on Gomez, who goes flying. The Liverpool fans want action from the referee but it's just a warning for the striker.
30’ Chance! Moreno is caught sleeping down his flank by Young. His cross is cleared out to Matic, who smacks a tasty half-volley from 30 yards. It's swerving towards the top corner but just swerves too much. Grazes the crossbar.
28’ More possession for Liverpool, but no threat provided. Firmino again moves into that right channel and tries to fizz a low ball into the mixer. There's no Liverpool player there to finish - Valencia clears.
25’ Young lines his free-kick up from 30 yards. The big men are up but his cross is cleared by Salah, who was standing 10 yards away from him. Very wasteful.
21’ Liverpool are starting to work space now. A ball to the back post finds Firmino, who plants the ball back across the face - it takes everyone - including Salah - by surprise and it trickles all the way across the six-yard box to safety.
17’ It's been all Liverpool in terms of territory, to the extent that Lukaku's just had his first touch of the game. That bus looks to be back again.
13’ Steady spell of possession from Liverpool. United are organised deep in a well-drilled shape. Break us down if you can, is the obvious message. No response from Liverpool.
10’ United seem to be targeting Moreno at full-back. Twice now they've spun the ball behind him for Young to chase. He reaches the second one and digs out a cross which Lovren deals with.
7’ Chance! Wijnaldum bursts right through the middle in behind Matic and reverses the ball to Firmino, who darts down the left. His cross deflects back off Wijnaldum but rolls straight at De Gea. Better stuff from Liverpool.
5’ Cagey stuff in midfield. Not much space to work in. Coutinho drops into the hole but Herrera follows him and makes a clear foul. As Neville pointed out, United are keen to stop the service into him.
