Bruno Fernandes‘ superb 78th-minute free-kick gave Manchester United victory in a thrilling FA Cup tie with old rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Liverpool led a fantastic contest through Mohamed Salah, who then equalised after Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford had struck for the hosts either side of the break.
But in a game which had everything last week’s drab stalemate between this pair at Anfield lacked, Fernandes came off the bench to have the final word after Fabinho had fouled Edinson Cavani on the edge of the area.
The victory earns United a home meeting with an in-form West Ham side managed by former boss David Moyes in the fifth round.
Liverpool’s wait for a first domestic cup win of Jurgen Klopp‘s reign goes on to compound their faltering league form.
The English champions have fallen six points behind United after failing to score in their last four league games.
