UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League
UEFA Europa League Qualifiers


That's all for today. Thank you for following our live coverage. We'll see you next time.
Both sides are in European action in midweek. Liverpool travel to Belgium to face Genk in the Champions League, while United face Serbian side Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.
Adam Lallana's late equaliser rescued a point for Liverpool as they held Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Reds' perfect start to the season is over but they remain unbeaten after Marcus Rashford's first-half strike was cancelled out five minutes from time.
90' + 6' Liverpool have one final chance as they are awarded a corner. However, United deal with the set piece and there goes the final whistle.
90' + 5' Liverpool try to force one final opportunity but Oxlade-Chamberlain's attempted switch of play to Alexander-Arnold is poorly executed and goes behind for a goal kick. Klopp's frustration is evident.
B. Williams
Andreas Pereira
90' + 4' Final change for United as the impressive Pereira is replaced by youngster Brandon Williams.
90' + 2' WHISKERS AWAY! Space opens for Oxlade-Chamberlain to shoot from the edge of the area. His drilled effort beats De Gea but goes just wide of the post.
90' There are going to be five minutes of stoppage time at the end of this game! Can Liverpool find a winner or will United hang on?
88' Not far away! Liverpool have their tails up and a cross is only cleared as far as Alexander-Arnold. The full-back lets fly on the volley and his effort drifts just over the crossbar.
87' That equaliser has set up a grandstand finish at Old Trafford. Liverpool certainly have the momentum now and United find themselves hanging on for a point.
A. Robertson
85' A regular provider of assists, Robertson conjures up another with his cross landing perfectly for Lallana to tuck away.
A. Lallana
85' LALLANA!!! IT'S 1-1! A huge equaliser for Liverpool! Following a patient build-up, Robertson delivers a cross that evades everybody in the box and an unmarked Lallana drifts in at the far post to tap home.
A. Martial
M. Rashford
84' United also turn to the bench with Anthony Martial replacing the impressive Rashford.
84' Good effort! Following a United counter, the ball breaks kindly for Fred to strike and his fierce effort drifts just wide of the far post.
N. Keïta
G. Wijnaldum
82' A third and final change for Liverpool as Wijnaldum makes way for Naby Keita.
79' Liverpool are turning up the pressure but desperately lacking the necessary quality in the final third. The latest example of this sees a relatively simple ball into the box overhit and trickle behind for a goal kick.
77' Alexander-Arnold's delivery is met by Firmino, but he sends his header into the ground and the ball bounces up nicely for De Gea to gather.
76' Liverpool are awarded a free-kick in a good area as Lallana is brought down by Young. Alexander-Arnold is stood over the ball...
74' United still lead by a goal to nil as we approach the final quarter of an hour at Old Trafford. Can Liverpool respond? They have been nowhere near their best today and these final 16 minutes are a real test of their credentials.
72' A confident move from United results in Fred latching onto Pereira's lay-off, but firing his volley just wide of the target.
A. Lallana
J. Henderson
71' In the meantime, Liverpool make another change with Adam Lallana introduced in favour of Henderson.
Yellow Card
70' Fabinho is shown the first yellow card of the game for a professional foul on James, who was threatening to break on the counter.
67' A good switch of play from Pereira finds Rashford on the left flank. The England international bursts into life and cuts inside towards the edge of the penalty area, before drilling a shot just wide of the near post.
66' As we approach the final quarter of this game, Liverpool are on course for their first Premier League defeat since January. Ironically, that also came in Manchester, with Pep Guardiola's City recording a 2-1 win.
64' With his first involvement, Oxlade-Chamberlain works some space to shoot from the edge of the area. However, he hooks it well wide of the target.
63' Liverpool are slowly establishing their authority on this contest. The visitors are still to truly test De Gea but they are certainly enjoying the majority of possession and pegging United inside their own half.
61' James took a heavy knock to the nose in that challenge. However, he has been seen to by the medical team and makes his way back onto the field.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
D. Origi
60' In the meantime, Liverpool make their first change as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comes on in place of Origi.
57' James goes down again following a strong but fair challenge from Matip. The United medical team are quickly on the field to give him the attention he needs.
55' Liverpool are beginning to grow into the second half with United penned inside their own half. Klopp's side must continue to do this if they are to turn the contest around.
53' United are aiming to stretch their current unbeaten streak against Liverpool at home in the Premier League to six games. It is their longest run without a defeat by the Reds at Old Trafford since a sequence of 10 matches between February 1991 and March 2000.
51' James is back on his feet and returns to the thick of the action. The former Swansea City winger has enjoyed a hugely positive start to life at Old Trafford and will be desperate for that to continue for as long as possible.
50' There is a break in play as James requires attention following a strong challenge by Van Dijk and Robertson. The winger was sandwiched between the two Liverpool defenders and it appeared to take the wind out of his sails somewhat.
48' Should United score a second goal today, they would become the first team to reach 2,000 in the Premier League since its introduction in 1992. If the first half is anything to go by, you would fancy them to do so.
46' OFF WE GO! We're back underway as Liverpool get the ball rolling once more.
Jurgen Klopp sprinted down the tunnel at half-time. The Liverpool boss has a big team-talk on his hands as he looks to rally his players following a below-par performance during the first 45 minutes. They have not looked like Premier League leaders so far and will be desperate to change that after the break.
Marcus Rashford's goal separates the sides at Old Trafford. Manchester United are certainly good value for their lead having been the better side throughout the contest. Liverpool thought they had equalised just before the break through Sadio Mane, but VAR ruled that the ball had struck his hand before he stuck it in the net.
45' NO GOAL! Replays show that the ball did come off the hand of Mane before he put the ball in the net. United still lead at Old Trafford.
44' MANE!!! 1-1! The forward latches onto Alexander-Arnold's long ball and gets the better of Lindelof before slotting past De Gea. Hang on! VAR is carrying out a check to determine whether or not Mane handled the ball in the lead-up to the goal...
42' Nothing can be taken away from United, though. They look incredibly dangerous with the pace of the front three and their commitment to the cause is evident.
40' Can Liverpool respond? They appear to be playing the occasion rather than the game at the moment. The league leaders could do with the half-time whistle so that they can start afresh after the break.
38' Klopp is clearly unhappy with the decision but, on the balance of play, United are deserving of their lead. The hosts have looked the better of the two sides and know they must press home their advantage.
D. James
36' With his first real involvement in the game, James embarked on a trademark sprint down the wing before delivering a delicious cross that was begging to be attacked.
M. Rashford
36' RASHFORD!!! 1-0 MANCHESTER UNITED! Liverpool feel like they should have had a free-kick after Origi goes down under a challenge from Lindelof. However, play goes on and James sprints into the gaping hole down the Liverpool left before delivering a brilliant cross for Rashford, who tucks home. VAR carry out a check for a foul but, following its completion, the goal stands.
34' CHANCE! Liverpool have looked a little out-of-sorts so far but suddenly click into gear with Mane leading the charge down the right flank. He crosses for Firmino but there is no conviction on the Brazilian's shot, which trickles into the arms of De Gea.
32' Pereira has also carried a great threat for United so far. He looks to get involved again by latching onto Young's long through ball, but just begins his run too early and is rightly ruled offside.
30' Rashford looks to be on top of his game so far today and he tends to be at his best against the stronger teams. In fact, 10 of his 30 Premier League goals have come against sides who finished in the Premier League's top six last season.
28' GOOD CLEARANCE! United continue to threaten. This time, Wan-Bissaka delivers a dangerous ball into the box from the right flank, but Van Dijk reacts quickly to clear with Pereira waiting to pounce.
26' Very unlucky! Receiving the ball from a throw-in, Rashford embarks on a dangerous run into the area. However, his attempted cutback ricochets off his trailing leg and into the grateful arms of Alisson.
25' McTominay embarks on a powerful surging run into the heart of the United defence, before shooting straight at Alisson from the edge of the area.
22' Excluding penalties, United have not scored from a set piece in the Premier League since March 1. That unwanted run continues for now as Young's corner is punched away to safety by Alisson.
21' Not many players get the better of Van Dijk in a one-on-one scenario but a speedy Rashford does so on this occasion. He then lays the ball into the path of Pereira, who cuts inside before his shot deflects behind for a corner.
19' At the other end, Robertson lays the ball off for Origi to cross from the left and Young has to make an important clearance to deny Liverpool a sight at goal.
17' Wan-Bissaka leads the charge for United this time as he neatly feeds the ball into Pereira. However, his attempted backheel into the area runs aimlessly into the arms of Alisson. He needed more help from his team-mates on that occasion.
15' We remain goalless after a quarter of an hour at Old Trafford. United will be pleased with their start to this contest, but Liverpool are just starting to settle into their rhythm. It certainly has the making to be a highly entertaining showdown between these two great rivals.
13' Liverpool beginning to threaten more. This time, Wijnaldum cleverly skips away from a challenge on the edge of the area, before shooting straight at De Gea.
12' It is worth noting that Firmino has failed to score in each of his eight previous Premier League appearances against United. The Brazilian will have to produce better than that if he is to end that unwanted record today.
10' OH DEAR! At the other end, the ball is neatly worked into the path of Firmino. The Brazilian opts to try his luck from a tight angle and gets it horribly wrong as he slices straight into the Stretford End - much to the amusement of the home fans.
9' The hosts are awarded a free-kick near the right touchline, which Pereira whips into the penalty area. However, Robertson makes a very well-timed intervention before clearing to safety.
7' Of course, United are familiar to ending lengthy unbeaten runs in the Premier League. Who could forget the victory that ended Arsenal's 49-match streak back in October 2004?!
5' It has been a positive start from United. The hosts put a neat move together and put pressure on the Liverpool defence, before Rojo's attempted cross goes behind for a goal kick.
3' There may be a sizeable gap between the two sides in the Premier League table, but the sheer stature of this fixture remains evident. Both sets of supporters are in full voice early on and it is a terrific atmosphere at Old Trafford.
1' HERE WE GO! The referee blows his whistle and United get us underway.
The teams are making their way out onto the field and kick-off is just moments away.
LATE CHANGE! United have been forced into a late alteration. Axel Tuanzebe was injured in the warm-up, so Marcos Rojo will replace him in the starting line-up with Phil Jones coming onto the bench.
Liverpool will regain their eight-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table with a victory today. Meanwhile, three points for 14th-placed United at Old Trafford could move them as high as seventh.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp makes three alterations from the victory over Leicester two weeks ago. The big one sees Alisson Becker return in goal, while Joel Matip has passed a late fitness test to start alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of defence. However, there is no Mo Salah for the Reds, so Divock Origi takes his place in the attacking trio with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes two changes to the United side that were beaten by Newcastle before the international break. Aaron Wan-Bissaka returns from illness at right-back and Victor Lindelof is also back in the starting 11. David de Gea has shaken off a groin problem to take his place in goal, while Anthony Martial returns to the bench after a thigh injury.
SUBS: Adrian, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana. 
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson (captain), Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi.
SUBS: Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo, Brandon Williams, Juan Mata, James Garner, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-3-3): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Ashley Young (captain); Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe, Fred; Andreas Pereira, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James.
Liverpool arrive at Old Trafford with history in their sights. Should the Reds prevail victorious, they will maintain their perfect start to the season and equal Manchester City’s record of 18 consecutive wins in the English top flight.
