For Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers was not on the touchline after being sent home due to illness.
And it's a final.
Liverpool 3 - QPR 0.
90+2' - And the Liverpool fans are singing loudly now.
"You'll Never Walk Alone"
90+1' - Getting a little chippy out there at the end. Gerrard goes in for a late slide on Fabio.
90' - Fabio picks up a caution for good measure. The foul was on Sterling.
86' - Carragher about to come in for Liverpool.
And it will be for Joe Allen.
85' - Stick a fork in QPR. They're done.
83' - Mbia with a decent effort, but Reina catches it without too much trouble.
83' - Taarabt brought down by Lucas just outside the Liverpool box. Lucas is cautioned.
80' - On comes Fabio for Wright-Phillips
Not exactly an attacking move by Redknapp.
78' - Suarez tries to put Gerrard in with a delicate chip, but it's a bit long for the Liverpool captain.
Liverpool still looks more likely to score the next goal than QPR.
77' - On the counter, Sterling puts Gerrard in, but the chance is wasted.
77' - Taarabt draws a foul for what could be a dangerous service for QPR.
75' - Great move by Sterling to win the endline, but it comes to nothing.
71' - Gerrard finds Suarez in behind, but Suarez can't get off a shot.
70' - Jose Enrique is down and asking for a substitute. Looks like a hamstring pull. Suso will be the replacement.
69' - Mbia with a wide open chance at the top of the box. Misses the shot wide.
67' - Mbia with a shot. Again, it's right at Reina. Pepe's had a pretty easy day so far.
64' - Esteban Granero for Diakete for QPR.
Liverpool also makes a switch. Lucas for Henderson.
61' - Taarabt with another shot, but it's straight at Reina.
59' - Surprising that Gerrard and Lampard never made a better combination for England. Both of them are so dynamic. Both can get forward and sit back so well.
53' - Gerrard just misses a diving header that would have been one of the goals of the season. Great combination by Downing and Suarez to set it up.
50' - Suarez with a fantastic effort pushed over the bar well by Cesar.
47' - Shaun Derry came on for Cisse at the half.
46' - and we're underway in the second half.
And that's halftime.
QPR can only hope the Norovirus hits the rest of the Liverpool squad before the second half starts.
