Click through the gallery to see action from Liverpool's win over United.

The Reds were unchanged from the win over Tottenham Hotspur while United, without Marcus Rashford, made three changes, with goalkeeper David De Gea, Luke Shaw and Andreas Pereira being recalled.

Liverpool had a bright start as Virgil van Dijk got the opening goal in the 14th minute with a towering header from Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner.

The hosts thought they had doubled their lead in the 26th minute after Roberto Firmino curled a stunning into the far corner, but the goal was disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee for a foul on De Gea by Van Dijk in the build-up.

United came close to finding the equaliser four minutes before the break after Aaron Wan-Bissaka delivered a delightful cross towards the far post but Pereira failed to connect with the net gaping, before de Gea denied Mane with a superb save minutes later at the othe end.

Jurgen Klopp's charges started the second stanza at a high intensity and should have doubled their lead two minutes from the break after Andrew Robertson picked out Mohamed Salah, who scuffed a side-footed shot wide of the mark.

Luck continued to evade Liverpool as a minute later Jordan Henderson charged his way through the heart of the United defence and unleashed a left footed strike that crashed against the post.

Anthony Martial had a glorious chance to level matters for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's army on the hour-mark after a quick one-two with Pereira sent him clear, but he curled his strike over the crossbar from 10-yards out.

United needed inspiration with 16 minutes remaining and Solskjaer made a double change as forward Mason Greenwood and Juan Mata replaced Brandon Williams and Pereira, before Klopp also made a double change with Fabinho and Divock Origi replacing Mane and Firmino.

Howevr, the Reds sealed victory in stoppage time as Salah ran onto Alisson's long pass and sprinted towards goal to slot a low shot past Dea Gea to seal a 2-0 win.
