There was more to come too, as after a feisty but goalless first half both sets of players were then reportedly embroiled in a bust-up at the break. According to Sky Sports Evra attempted to talk to Suarez but was prevented from doing so by Martin Skrtel which then prompted a brawl involving players, stewards and police.
The clash was the first time that Evra and Suarez have come face-to-face since the race row began following the reverse tie at Anfield last October, after which Suarez was found guilty of racially abusing the Red Devils' skipper and banned for eight games.
The home fans booed Suarez from the start, with the away supporters doing the same for Evra, in a hostile atmosphere at Old Trafford.
United eventually won the game 2-1 courtesy of two goals by Wayne Rooney, with Suarez grabbing a late consolation for the visitors. However, there was still more controversy to come at the end of the match with Evra celebrating wildly at the final whistle, close to Suarez and being ushered away by the referee.
