The Reds dominated much of the match but lacked urgency in the final third, only sparking into life when the Hoops took a surprise lead through Jamie Mackie on 52 minutes.
Thankfully, Jonny Evans netted an equaliser 11 minutes later before Darren Fletcher put United ahead with a powerful header from Wayne Rooney’s fine corner.
Super-sub Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez then slotted home the winning goal, latching onto Anderson’s brilliant pass to wrap up a fine second-half performance.
