    What's up next?

    We have the final day of the Premier League coming up tomorrow with both of these teams in action.

    Liverpool play host to Wolves, as they look to win the Premier League title, but they need Manchester City to slip up if they are going to achieve that feat.

    Manchester United are in action away to Crystal Palace, as they seek to cement their place in the Europa League. Should they lose or draw tomorrow, and West Ham win, then West Ham will take that spot.

    Great afternoon for the Foundation

    It has been a great afternoon of football, but in the bigger picture, the money raised for the Manchester United Foundation.

    The foundation does great work for the people of Manchester, and it was a great day out for everyone involved.

    You can see the work that the foundation does here.

    Evra disappointed

    Patrice Evra was excellent today, and is spoke to MUTV.

    The Frenchman was furious at his sides loss, despite it only being a charity match. But, that is what made him such an excellent professional.

    "Where are the English players? When the foundation call you you have to show up. I don't want to criticize the players in my team, but more players need to show up. I'm living in Dubai, but when United call you, you have to show up."

    "I'm gonna only have an ice bath, because I am so upset that we lost."

    Gonzalez the difference maker

    Mark Gonzalez was excellent today.

    His free kick was sublime, and any keeper would have struggled to save that one, top bins.

    His second goal was a great strike into the bottom right hand corner on his remarkable left foot, a quality, quality player.

    A great game

    We witnessed a great game at Old Trafford, between the two Northern juggernauts of English football.

    Some heroes of yesteryear lit up Old Trafford, with Dimitar Berbatov showing his class in the first half, and Luis Garcia came on the second half to be the difference maker for the visitors.

    The latter scored Liverpool's opener, and set up Mark Gonzalez for the finishing goal. The Spaniard was excellent.

    Garcia offside

    89. The ball out wide is looking for Dirk Kuyt, but Garcia nicks it and fires over.

    He should at least score, but he is offside anyway.

    The crowd laud him for that one.

    Neville vs Carra

    87. That is the clash we have been waiting for.

    Neville drives down the right hand side and Carragher brings him down fairly.

    Neville appeals for a pen but to no avail.

    Webber should score!

    He whips a great ball in to Webber six yards out, but his header into the floor bounces over and out.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    Garcia has to score!

    78. Great ball from Voronin to find Luis Garcia!

    His shot is just wide, but he should score.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    What a strike!

    75. What a strike from Johnsen.

    He has a go from 35-40 yards and it is so narrowly over the bar.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    Nearly a Carragher own goal!

    72. Carragher passes it back to his keeper and it almost slithers in!

    Evra does well!

    70. Evra does really well down the left hand side to find Poborsky.

    His shot is blocked.

  • Lloyd Canfield

    Webber saved!

    68. He should pass to Evra on the left hand side there, he is frustrated at Webber.

    Typical center forward move there from Webber, a powerful effort, saved by Pikington.

    What a strike!

    63. It's a gorgeous free kick from Mark Gonzalez!

    From the right hand side he whips it with that wand of a left foot, off the right hand post and into the net, no chance for Pilkington.

    United must come back from behind again.

    Berbatov and Blomqvist off

    Berbatov and Blomqvist are off and on comes Mikael Silvestre and John O'shea.

    They will miss Berba's excellence for sure, what a player.

    Kuyt hits the post!

    58. Dirk Kuyt takes a great touch in the box and smashes the post with his left foot, unfortunate.
