Blog: Cup joy for Reds

22:03 David Moyes has just completed his post-match press conference. And the draw for the fourth round has just taken place - United will play Norwich at home the week beginning 28 October.

21:40 MUTV pundits Viv Anderson and Lou Macari have picked Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney as their Man of the Match candidates. You can cast your vote now by going to our official Twitter account and retweeting the tweets for your chosen candidate.

21:38 David Moyes walked onto the pitch at full-time to congratulate every one of his players on the victory which came courtesy of Chicharito's winner, a minute after half-time. And he was given a rousing reception by the Stretford End as he left the pitch, as were all the players.

21:34 FT: United 1 Liverpool 0. Fantastic result for the Reds who worked their socks off to get that win in what was a really enthralling cup tie. And it was great to see so many fans stay inside the stadium right until the final whistle to clap the lads off.

21:32 To kill a bit of time David Moyes sends on Danny Welbeck in place of Nani. There will be three minutes of added time.

21:30 Liverpool are piling on the pressure. Henderson has just collected a short corner and seen his looped deflecred effort cleared away brilliantly by De Gea, right by his right-hand post.

21:27 The noise around Old Trafford is fantastic. Loudest it's been all season as 'David Moyes' red and white army' echoes round the stadium.

21:25 Five minutes to go. Still 1-0 to United. Don't forget the draw for the next round of the Cup is coming up soon after full-time - fingers crossed we'll be in the hat.

21:23 Another change for Liverpool as Raheem Sterling enters the action in place of Victor Moses.
