Steven Gerrard was sent off as Ryan Giggs' first-minute penalty proved enough to send Manchester United into the fourth round of the FA Cup while ruining Kenny Dalglish's emotional return as Liverpool manager.
The tie was barely 30 seconds old when Daniel Agger was adjudged to have fouled Dimitar Berbatov in the box and Giggs converted the spot-kick with ease.
Liverpool responded well, but their hopes of a comeback were hit hard when Gerrard saw red for diving in rashly on Michael Carrick just after the half-hour mark.
Despite a spirited effort that offered encouragement to the 9,000 visiting fans, only a succession of fine saves by Pepe Reina kept the game alive until the end.
