This is a big 10 minutes or so for Liverpool now. Can they hang on or nick a fourth to make sure of the points?


McTominay slips trying to keep up with a pass into Mane. He appears to pull down the Liverpool man - it should be a free kick and another yellow! But the referee doesn't even give a foul. Klopp grins inanely once again.

Fernandes takes aim from 25 yards but it's blocked by the arms of Thiago. Free kick in a dangerous central position for the hosts. Deja vu from the FA Cup game?


CLOSE! Trent AA sends another sensational pass through for Mane. He looks to be in but can't quite get to the ball ahead of Henderson, who gets a touch on it to deny the forward.

GOAL! United are back in it! Rashford races on to a through pass and squeezes a shot beyond Alisson and into the far corner.


United are beginning to probe a bit more now. Greenwood's introduction could at least lead to some more goal-mouth action. Alisson hasn't had much to do.


You sense the home side must have a spell in this half. Will Liverpool end up regretting not putting this to bed with a fourth?

Liverpool break at speed. Bailly wins the ball but then loses it too cheaply deep inside his own half. Salah frees Alexander Arnold but his low, rasping shot is parried by Henderson.


It should be four! Liverpool rip United apart again. Jota is clear on Henderson but sees his thumping shot come back off the keeper's right-hand post.


Williams dives into a tackle on Rashford as the United man looked to lead a counter attack with a clever dummy. The Liverpool defender escapes without a caution which doesn't impress the United players.


United have been sleep-walking through this half so far. OGS will be demanding more. How long until he turns to the bench?

Rashford rampages after a diagonal long ball but Alisson reads the danger and is quickly off his line to stop the United man from making more of it.

OPTA STATS: For the second time this season, Man Utd have opened the scoring in a home Premier League game but gone in at half-time behind (also v Spurs); they had only done this once in their previous 28 Premier League campaigns before this term (v Liverpool in 2009).

Pogba is given time to turn into space on the left side of the box and rifle a shot just past the near post.


Fernandes and Pogba combine brilliantly deep in Liverpool terirtory but the Frenchman's attempt to tease a pass in-behind for Cavani is well cut out.

SAVE! Jota flicks up Robertson's pass and volleys in an 18-yard shot that Henderson tips over the top.


CLOSE! Pogba loops a header just past the far post after a short corner and delightful cross from Fernandes caught Liverpool's defence out.


Klopp shakes his head and grins - hiding his serious frustration. The referee changes his mind after looking at the monitor.


VAR is in the process of checking the tackle. Bailly did win the ball but followed through on Phillips. The referee has gone to the monitor to make his own mind up.


PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL! United make a hash of clearing a corner. Bailly follows through in a tackle on Phillips. It's rash and the referee points to the spot.


#Bruno stats


SAVE! Alexander Arnold teases an inviting ball into the area for Jota, but Henderson races off his line and the forward can only prod a shot against the keeper from point-blank range.

Manchester United gegen den FC Liverpool

Liverpool have seen a couple of decent crosses come to nothing. Apart from that, it's been all United. Not what Klopp is hoping to see tonight given the importance of the top-four chase.


It's early days, but as it stands, United would guarantee second spot. Liverpool would stay sixth but would be seven points off Chelsea in fourth with just the one game in hand.

That's a huge early blow for the Merseysiders. They haven't exactly been under lots of pressure but they have looked shaky at the back.

Alisson was fortunate against Southampton with that type of mistake. Liverpool need to avoid giving United any gifts.


CLOSE! Alisson is far too casual with his distribution and passes it straight to Cavani. The forward is almost caught by surprise and fails to fire his shot from 18 yards on target. That's a let off for the visitors.


Liverpool appeal for a penalty as Firmino's cutback hits Bailly on the arm. It was via a ricochet and the referee waves away the protests.


It'll be interesting to see how Rhys Williams copes this evening. He struggled in the FA Cup clash back in late January.

Major event incoming. Man United v Liverpool is just moments away.


DID YOU KNOW? Mohamed Salah is aiming to become the first Liverpool player to score away to Man United in two separate games within the same season, since Harry Chambers 100 years ago.


A nice touch from Liverpool in memory of Jordan Banks. RIP little man.


Nemanja Matic: “Playing every second day is not easy, we don't have enough time to prepare our game in the best way. We'll try to recover as soon as possible and be ready for the Liverpool game. It's not easy and it's not usual - normally it's every three days - but we have to be ready, be fresh because, as you know, [Liverpool is] the most important game for our supporters.“

Virgil Van Dijk gave an update on his fitness in a chat with the club website this week. Here’s a snippet of what he had to say: “We all know how the season has gone – and we’re not happy with how it’s gone. It’s been frustrating for all of us, for all the Liverpool fans. With everything that is going on in the world and in the football world as well, personally it has been a very tough year, but I am looking forward to next season.”


Some congratulatory words re Man City from both managers. We'll continue to try and focus on the football unless something significant breaks. The players are going through the pre-match routines now while there are still fans protesting outside the ground.


Solskjaer: “If you want to take up the challenge with them (Man City) we need to strengthen our squad. We want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad."

Klopp on United’s 10 changes v Leicester: “It is not the fault of Ole and the players. My question to myself was: 'would I have done the same? Yes'. You have to. You have to. We are late in the season, all the players played a lot of games. United went to the Europa League final so that means an awful lot of games and now you get Sunday-Tuesday-Thursday. That is not possible."

Man United make 10 changes from their 2-1 defeat versus Leicester. Eric Bailly is the only player to retain his spot in the line up as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names a strong team.

Hello and welcome to LIVE updates of the rearranged fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford. It’s 11 days on from the postponement due to fan protests and the Red Devils are seeking a win that would guarantee them second spot while the Merseysiders desperately need the points to maintain their late push for a top-four finish. There have been protests once again this evening, but Liverpool have arrived and it looks like we are going to have some football. Kick off 20.15 BST. 




Manchester United statement: "Following discussion between the Police, the Premier League, Trafford Council and the clubs, our match against Liverpool has been postponed due to safety and security considerations around the protest today. Discussions will now take place with the Premier League on a revised date for the fixture. Our fans are passionate about Manchester United, and we completely acknowledge the right to free expression and peaceful protest. However, we regret the disruption to the team and actions which put other fans, staff, and the police in danger. We thank the police for their support and will assist them in any subsequent investigations."


BREAKING NEWS: The match has been postponed. Discussions are now taking place to arrange a new date for the fixture.


It's been confirmed that supporters have now been dispersed from around the Lowry hotel area and police just need to co-ordinate safely getting the squads to the ground. There is no update on this happening at present though so the wait goes on as to whether we'll actually see some football this evening.

The 18.30 BST kick off time that was rumoured earlier is going to be cutting it fine if there's no movement in terms of the team hotels very soon. It's simply a waiting game at the moment. It'd be interesting to see at what it would be deemed too late to continue tonight....


And still we wait for some news. There are suggestions that there remain supporters around the team hotels and therefore the two squads still haven't departed for the ground. Surely a decision about kick off needs to made imminently here.


Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville are making an interesting point about the players on Sky Sports. They are saying it's not ideal to gauge a pre-match meal, sit around for hours and get the right mindset following such a lengthy disruption. Some will no doubt want to just get on with it, but that won't be the case for everyone. They could suggest coming back the following day, but given the intensity of schedules (United visit Roma on Thursday) no one will want that.


There has been an announcement inside Old Trafford stating that the ground is now secure and people can return to their respective areas of work. Still no news on the team arrivals yet.


Some supporters are suggesting the manner of the protests wasn't the way to do it. However, others are claiming that less drastic approaches in the past have fallen on deaf ears. Fans wants the owners to hear them and whatever you think of it, delaying kick off for one of the biggest games in the season certainly gets attention.


It seems there is more optimism that this match will go ahead at some point this evening. It's being reported that the PL are determined to make it happen. Once we have confirmation of a potential kick off time, we'll post it in this live.


Large areas around Old Trafford have now been cleared by police. There are still a few hundred fans around the ground but it seems the numbers have certainly decreased.


Reports from around the ground suggest that mounted police are forcing supporters to back off to some extent. Still no news on a potential kick off time.


There is a large police presence outside Old Trafford now but there's still a large number of supporters there too. No news of the teams leaving their respective hotels to head towards the stadium either.


The thousands of Manchester United fans protesting are using the slogan "50+1, # ProtectTheLegacy." It is a rule used in German football to prevent financial superpowers from ruining the game. Basically this allows the fans, those that actually pay to watch the action, control over who is on the board.


Gary Neville is speaking passionately about the protests at Old Trafford on Sky Sports: "This is a consequence of the Manchester United owners' actions two weeks ago. There is a general distrust and dislike of the owners, but they weren't protesting two or three weeks ago."

Meanwhile referee Michael Oliver, who was denied access to the ground earlier, has now been granted entry.


Apparently there is a meeting scheduled for now (4pm) between PL officials and the two clubs. A suggestion of a 6.30pm kick off is being mooted but not set in stone.


Our social media channels fell silent from 3pm on Friday and will remain so until midnight on Monday as we join others in taking a stand against hate on social media platforms. We will therefore not be embedding social updates in this live. We are hearing rumours that ‘touch points’ will need to be cleaned at Old Trafford which could take a few hours. Will we have an evening kick off? Or could it even be postponed until another day?


It has been confirmed that there WILL be a delay to the kick off. More details from 16.00 BST.

Despite the fact the two squads are yet to arrive at Old Trafford due to the breach of security at the ground, the team sheet has been released.


Hello and welcome to LIVE updates of what should be the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford. However, the pre-match countdown has descended into a bit of chaos following the disruption of protests from United supporters in response to the ESL and the club’s owners. Kick off was due for 16.30 BST, but there have been serious doubts raised as to whether the game will even go ahead at this point. We'll keep you posted as the story continues to develop.
