Liverpool added to their League Cup semifinal victory over Manchester City in midweek with an FA Cup fourth round win over Manchester United at Anfield as a late Dirk Kuyt goal swept them through against their old rivals.

Here we take a look at the ratings for all the Reds' players after a hard-fought victory against the Red Devils.

Kenny Dalglish named four changes to his starting line-up as Dirk Kuyt, Charlie Adam, Glen Johnson, and Craig Bellamy made ways for Andy Carroll, Martin Kelly, Maxi Rodriguez, and Jamie Carragher, who started in a defensive midfield role.

In a first half of few chances, Liverpool suffered a scare when United midfielder Antonio Valencia hit the post after breaking through from midfield.

However Daniel Agger gave the Reds the lead with a thumping header moments later. Ji-Sung Park equalised for United who ended the half stronger, but a series of second half substitutions by Dalglish changed the tide of the game and Liverpool won it with a late Dirk Kuyt strike.

Andy Carroll hit the bar late on and Kuyt swept wide off the rebound, but Liverpool had already done enough to book their place in the fifth round.
