Full-time: Manchester United 3-1 Liverpool

Five games, five wins and one (unimportant) trophy for Louis van Gaal in the United States.

Sterling, who's faded, hits a cross over everybody as the players wait for the final shrill. It's been a good workout for both sets of players.

Young, impressive again, wins a throw inside Liverpool's third. Unsurprisingly, he looks shattered, but it'll be worth it. For the time being, his United career should be safe.

Wonderful football form United down the right. Cleverley clipped it into Young, he flicked it on for Nani back to Cleverley, who played it over the top for Young. He crossed, Kagawa couldn't control the ball but Lingard ran onto it and smashed it past Mignolet anyway.

Lingard makes it 3-1 United. Game over.

Yellow card for Wayne Rooney

It was a deliberate trip on Sterling inside the centre circle and the striker accepts his punishment without a murmur.

Van Gaal might have a word with De Gea, whose distribution has been uncharacteristically poor this half, after he balloons another kick out. It's bound to happen occasionally under Van Gaal's tutelage but De Gea's radar is usually much more accurate.

Brilliant, gamely running from Henderson down the right as he somehow manages to get a cross in only no one is anywhere near the six-yard box to capitalise. The ball travels across to Sterling, who cannot maintain the move's momentum and United are away again.

Odd one from Rooney, who regains the ball near the halfway line yet chooses to try and play the ball all the way back to De Gea. He succeeds in only gifting Liverpool a corner, Henderson's cross should be cleared by Nani but isn't, Toure plays the ball into the six-yard box and Smalling is there to clear the danger.

Lovely link-up play between Shaw, Rooney and Kagawa as the Japanese is released on the left. He pings the ball low into the box and someone, maybe Rooney, makes the faintest of contact as the chance goes begging.
