The hosts started brightly and Nani had the first chance of the match, but saw his powerful effort deflect wide.

Shinji Kagawa was next to threaten for United but his strike was straight at Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool had a golden chance to take the lead in the 20th minute when Luis Suarez played Daniel Sturridge through, yet he could only poke his effort wide.

Javier Hernandez put United into the lead just a minute after the break when he forced home a corner from Wayne Rooney.

Minutes later Jordan Henderson should have drawn his side level but placed his shot from the edge of the box wide.

Liverpool continued to threaten and Luis Suarez struck the bar with a deflected free kick, before Wayne Rooney tested Mignolet with two powerful efforts.

In the final moments of the match Kolo Toure saw his shot roll past the post with Sturridge unable to make contact, as United held on to record a much-needed victory.
