Bruno Fernandes came off the bench to fire in a stunning late free kick as Manchester United dumped bitter rivals, Liverpool out of the FA Cup with a 3-2 win on Sunday and set up a fifth-round tie at home to David Moyes’ West Ham next month.
Mohammed Salah scored his first goals at Old Trafford with a brace but Liverpool's winless run goes on after Fabinho’s indiscretions cost the Kops late on with not much left on the clock to salvage yet another defeat.
Salah then went close to completing his hat trick on the break, but shot straight at Henderson, although it fell on his weaker foot; It was a miss Jurgen Klopp's side would come to rue, as substitute Fernandes made a decisive intervention.
Fabinho, who at the time was already on a yellow was fouled on the edge of Liverpool's penalty area, Fernandes curled a free kick beyond Alisson with 12 minutes left for his 16th goal of the season.
"Great goal, good free kick," United's manager said of Fernandes. "When you leave him out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance. He's never happy with me when I tell him to go inside after training when he's playing the next day so he got some practice yesterday."
