Liverpool vs Manchester United

77min -  GOAL Ryan Babel gets the ball from Kuyt and blasts the ball home from 12 yards!
70 min - Ryan Giggs, on for Carrick, goes for the half-volley that nearly beats Reina!
56 min - Yossi Benayoun beats the United offside trap and glides in for the shot, but van der Sar blocks the ball with his face!
Halftime Report
Liverpool need Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard to put them over the top.
As potent as the Manchester United front line have been, they have failed to really test Reina in the Liverpool goal. The Red Devils are level due to some horrendous goalkeeping by van der Sar, with Liverpool putting the pressure on the Man United defence after the own goal.
Michael Carrick seems to be limping after an unexpected crunching tackle from Benayoun, with Man United set to bring on Owen Hargreaves if necessary.
27 min - GOAL Catastrophe for Man United as Van der Sar makes a hash of the cross, palming the ball to the shins of Wes Brown and conceding the own goal.
12 min - Van der Sar fumbles the cross and Dirk Kuyt nearly scores. Great block by the Man United defence.
3 min - GOAL Dimitar Berbatov pulls two defenders into the box and cuts back for a trailing Carlos Tevez who places the ball past a strandard Edwin van der Sar.
