Manchester United vs Liverpool LIVE SCORE: 0-1

This is the beginning of our Manchester United vs Liverpool live blog, with updates following on below and with the most recent ones nearest the top.

Minute 10: Rashford tries his luck

Fred won the ball back in midfield and quickly found Rashford, who attempted a shot from 25 yards out that fizzed wide of Alisson's post. That was so close to a Manchester United equaliser.


Roughly 90 seconds after Bruno Fernandes' miss, Liverpool have taken the lead. Wan-Bissaka pushed forward from right-back and that caused disarray in the United defence, which allowed Salah to play a well-timed pass into Naby Keita, who kept his composure to finish past De Gea.

Minute 4: Bruno Fernandes fires wide

Manchester United shifted the ball from left to right and that meant Bruno Fernandes had acres of space on the right-hand side of the box, but he fired his shot high and wide of Alisson's goal.
