On an emotional afternoon on Merseyside, goals from Rafael and Robin van Persie sealed a first win at Anfield for the Reds in almost five years.

Sir Alex's men had not won on Liverpool's patch since December 2007 and it looked like United's poor run would continue when Steven Gerrard put the hosts ahead just after half-time.

But the Reds responded brilliantly with a fine strike from Rafael five minutes later, before Robin van Persie held his nerve to convert an 81st-minute penalty and secure the three points.
