1809: If you missed the action today, you must cancel all other plans and check out the highlights on MOTD2 later - BBC1 at 2220 BST. You'd only be cheating yourself if you didn't. DJ Spoony is taking your calls on BBC Radio 5 Live's 606 and I imagine there'll be a few Arsenal fans on the line. What a day it's been. I feel like I've run a marathon... See ya!

1807: "Today was a big step. We win the next three games and we're champions."
Manchester United scorer Owen Hargreaves

1804: A brilliant game at Old Trafford, but it's from Anfield that our Player of the Day comes. Steven Gerrard takes the honours with 8.27 ahead of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney on 7.30. Emmanuel Eboue is today's loser on a miserable 3.86.

1802: "Monumental victory for United! Buzzing atmosphere in the ground. Everyone knows the importance of that!"
El Ginge from OT, via text on 81111

1800: "It's proof that it's not the best team that wins... it's the best squad. So we had lots of injuries? We should have bought more players to support the best 11 in the league, you can't win anything with 13 or 14 great players... you need more like 17."

1758: Manchester United go six points clear at the top - with second-placed Chelsea playing Wigan on Monday. Arsenal are now nine points adrift and that defeat ends a catastrophic week for the Gunners.

1755: FULL-TIME Man Utd 2-1 Arsenal

1751: Into four minutes of injury time.

1750: Brilliant save by Edwin van der Sar. Cesc Fabregas floats a free-kick over from the right to the far post but Nicklas Bendtner's header is pushed around the post by the United keeper.

1749: United waste some minutes by bringing Ryan Giggs on for goalscorer Owen Hargreaves. That was some free-kick by Hargreaves.

1748: Arsenal are piling the pressure on with two minutes remaining...

1747: "I can see Gilberto urging his team-mates on. I've seen nothing from William Gallas. There's been no leadership from him at all from what I can see."
BBC 5 Live analyst Graham Taylor

1745: Cesc Fabregas floats a ball to the far post for Nicklas Bendtner. It seems to hang in the air for a long time before Bendtner heads straight at Edwin van der Sar.

1745: Justin Hoyte comes on to replace Kolo Toure. Not the sort of change to fill Arsenal fans with much hope, I would think.

1744: "I think everyone is forgetting Arsenal are good at last-minute goals! Fingers crossed!"
hopefulchelseafan via text on 81111

1743: Cesc Fabregas slips a pass through for Emmanuel Adebayor, but the Arsenal striker seems to take his eye off the ball and United clear.

1742: "Bendtner off the bench - not the same as Tevez really. Arsenal need to spend big in the summer to strengthen the squad."
Bellford via text on 81111

1741: Cristiano Ronaldo runs at Kolo Toure and cuts into the box before shooting well wide.

1740: "Re 1632: What was that Graham about Hargreaves bringing only hard work to United?"
Anon via text on 81111

1738: You've probably forgotten all about it now but I sent some little people to look at the FA rulebook and they couldn't find anything that says you can't stop your run-up to a penalty kick. Anyone know any better?

1737: "That's the league for United. All fairness to them they have been brilliant in the last two months. They can afford to lose to Chelsea and still win the league."

1736: Arsenal very much drinking in the last-chance saloon now and Arsene Wenger brings on Nicklas Bendtner for Robin van Persie.

1731: GOAL Man Utd 2-1 Arsenal
Owen Hargreaves chips it up, over the wall and inside the left-hand post. A quite brilliant free-kick. Jens Lehmann did not move but I don't think he would have got there.

1731: Patrice Evra slips a brilliant pass through for Wayne Rooney - but Jens Lehmann is there again with a fabulous save. He's had a brilliant game so far... United win a free-kick though when the ball comes back out to Evra and he's tripped.

1727: What a game this is. Gael Clichy's cross takes a wicked deflection off Wes Brown and is tipped on to the foot of the post by Edwin van der Sar.

1726: Alex Hleb beats his man brilliantly before releasing Theo Walcott, who cuts it back for Cesc Fabregas on the edge of the box. He shoots over.

1725: Carlos Tevez hits a ferocious shot from 25 yards which flies narrowly wide with Jens Lehmann comfortably beaten.

1723: Emmanuel Adebayor is booked for a horrible lunge at Carlos Tevez. Pure frustration from the Arsenal striker. Sixth card of the day.

1721: Theo Walcott on, Emmanuel Eboue off.

1720: Quite a few of you querying Ronaldo's penalty. The winger completely stopped halfway through his run-up - but ref Howard Webb let it go. Not sure on the exact rules on that these days, to be honest.

1715: Anderson, 20 today, comes on along with Carlos Tevez. Paul Scholes and Ji-Sung Park are off. Old Trafford is really rocking now. This is a massive test for Arsenal.

1713: GOAL Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal
It's like Anfield all over again. Shortly after taking the lead, William Gallas handles in the box to give away a penalty. Cristiano Ronaldo has to take it again after encroaching, Jens Lehmann is booked for some back-chat before Cristiano Ronaldo equalises for United. Drama.

1712: Penalty to Manchester United.

1711: What a save. Emmanuel Adebayor is released down the right and his cross is almost converted by Rio Ferdinand but Edwin van der Sar pulls off a wonder save.

1708: GOAL Man Utd 0-1 Arsenal
Controversial. Very controversial. Cesc Fabregas's shot is charged down but Robin van Persie picks up the rebound and gets to the byeline before crossing from the left. Edwin van der Sar, for some reason, keeps his hands to himself when he could easily have punched - and Emmanuel Adebayor bundles in from close range - with his arm, it looked like.

1707: Manchester United haven't been involved in a 0-0 draw since they were held by Reading in their opening game of the Premier League season.

1705: BBC 5 Live duo Alan Green and Graham Taylor were very disparaging about that first half. I quite enjoyed it though. Am I mad? Anyway, the second half is up and running.

1658: "Somebody needs to tell Wes Brown that Man U are playing in red shirts. Oh, and somebody needs to tell Scholes that Man U are playing."

1657: Here's Rafa Benitez on the latest boardroom shenanigans at Liverpool... "I was surprised it was something I could read in the press. I will talk with the board, I think it's important for me to try to understand the situation."

1652: Now what's this then? Emmanuel Eboue is on 4.39 on BBC Sport's Player Rater, which by our reckoning is about 4.38 too high. Cesc Fabregas is leading the way on 7.17, Wayne Rooney on 7.

1649: HALF-TIME Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

1648: That sort of sums up Cristiano Ronaldo's first half as he skips infield but then scuffs a long-range shot. He's a very frustrated man at the moment.

1644: Robin van Persie plays in Cesc Fabregas down the left but Edwin van der Sar anticipates the pass and comes out to collect as Emmanuel Adebayor runs in.

1640: Robin van Persie is in the book for catching Wes Brown. Bit harsh.

1637: Another brilliant save from Jens Lehmann. Alex Song's mistake lets in Wayne Rooney, but Lehmann saves with his leg again. Lively first half this.

1636: How many chances does he want? Alex Hleb plays in Emmanuel Adebayor, but his weak effort is straight at the keeper.

1635: Boos all round as Eboue hobbles back on.

1634: As Emmanuel Eboue gets some treatment following a clash with Cristiano Ronaldo, Kolo Toure gathers the troops for a quick pep-talk - Gallas, Lehmann, Song and Hleb all involved.

1633: "When did Eboue get THIS bad? He's been pretty rubbish for the past two seasons, but today he's found an all new low."

1632: "I don't think Ferguson has picked his strongest side with Ji-Sung Park and Owen Hargreaves starting. I hope I'm not being too critical of those two players but I just don't think either of them give anything extra apart from hard work."
BBC Radio 5 Live analyst Graham Taylor

1629: Emmanuel Adebayor picks up the ball in a promising position on the edge of the box but he's forgotten his shooting boots today. Very high. Very, very high.

1628: He's here, he's there, he's every...etc etc. Fabio Capello has made it to his seat at Old Trafford after racing away from Anfield.

1627: "I don't understand the persistence with Kolo Toure at right-back. He's a very good centre-half but not a right-back."
BBC Radio 5 Live commentator Alan Green

1624: What a save by Jens Lehmann. Cristiano Ronaldo takes the ball past Alex Song on the left and squares it for Wayne Rooney - but the Gunners keeper sticks out a leg to send the shot past the post. Best chance of the match.

1624: Emmanuel Eboue is having a bad day... even by his standards. He knocks a through-ball straight out of play - with no Arsenal player anywhere near.

1623: Wayne Rooney and Emmanuel Eboue share a hug after the striker explains he accidentally kicked the Arsenal midfielder. A heartwarming moment.

1621: Kolo Toure lets Wayne Rooney go and the striker gets a shot in - but wide.

1618: "Arsenal are dominating, we need to get hold of the midfield. I'm shaking."

1616: It's all happening. Edwin van der Sar flaps at a corner and Gilberto attempts to hook home but his own own player blocks. At the other end, Ji-Sung Park heads wide from Owen Hargreaves' left-wing cross. Wes Brown is in the book for a late challenge on Gael Clichy.

1615: Lovely break from Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayor lays the ball off to Emmanuel Eboue on the right and chases into the box to get on the end of the cross - but his shot is deflected behind by Rio Ferdinand.

1612: Silly foul from Emmanuel Adebayor on Cristiano Ronaldo out left. Ronaldo takes it but it clears everyone.

1611: Gilberto is penalised for handball as he robs Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo takes three steps back, stands with his legs apart and... smacks his free-kick into the wall.

1610: Oh dear. Robin van Persie, who earlier let a pass roll over his foot and go straight out of play, attempts to set up Emmanuel Adebayor but gets his pass horribly wrong and puts it behind for a goal-kick.

1607: That's better though. Wes Brown gives the ball straight to Cesc Fabregas and his well-struck shot flies just over from the edge of the box.

1606: There's the first shot, but it's not very good. Cesc Fabregas picks up the pass from Alex Hleb but his effort dribbles into Edwin van der Sar's arms.

1604: An early laugh for the United fans as Emannuel Eboue slips over into the hoardings. Only his pride is hurt.

1602: Off we go then - crunch time for Arsenal. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, with his arms folded, is looking terribly stern as he paces around on the touchline.

1600: Fergie gets his manager of the month award, while Cristiano Ronaldo picks up his player gong.

1557: In the absence of Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand leads the Manchester United team out.

1554: "I don't think I have been this nervous before a game for years. It feels like the whole season is riding on this."
S in London, via text on 81111

1549: The golf has kicked off (or whatever it is that golf does) and Mark Orlovac - winner of BBC Sport's nicest man award a record seven years running - is your host. Tiger Woods will win. Probably.

1548: "Lehmann has done a lot of talking recently and has a lot to prove, as a United fan, I'm scared of Lehmann picking this match to prove his point."
J in Belfast, via text on 81111

1543: Here's Sir Alex... "It's a must-win game for us. I'm not sure the way they're lining up but I think it wil be a very tight game. This could be a very decisive moment for us. If we win, it would put us in a fantastic position."

1542: "How does Eboue, who is possibly the only player worse than Senderos, still get into the Arsenal team?"
Anon via text on 81111

1540: "Re 1533: I'd rather have a one-armed Almunia than a four-armed Lehmann."
Lee, Arsenal fan from Blackpool, via text on 81111
Interesting image that. A four-armed Jens Lehmanm.

1538: "If there is any criticism of Wenger, it's that he only see things one way. At the end of the day, he talks about being a winner - and if they don't win the title, that's three years without winning anything."
BBC Radio 5 Live analyst Graham Taylor

1536: "That line-up is great. He's gotten rid of the dross and finally given Song a chance. And Walcott is not starting because he is still seen as an impact player. You will see him between 50 and 60 minutes."

1533: Scrap that last bit, Manuel Almunia has a wrist injury. So probably a good idea he's not playing.

1531: So despite his stunning run against Liverpool, Theo Walcott still fails to get into the Arsenal line-up. How are Arsenal fans feeling about that? And Lehmann for Almunia? Good idea?

1528: And as Lawro points out on BBC Radio 5 Live, we could be heading for controversy in the Premier League. Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez now seems certain to play a weakened sides against relegation-threatened Fulham and Birmingham ahead of the Champions League semi-final first and second legs against Chelsea...

1526: Liverpool go five points clear of Everton in fourth, with games against Fulham, Birmingham, Manchester City and Tottenham to come.

1524: FULL-TIME Liverpool 3-1 Blackburn

1522: GOAL Liverpool 3-1 Blackburn
The ball flicks off Martin Skrtel's head and Roque Santa Cruz hooks a quite brilliant volley into the top corner. Blackburn have definitely scored the best goal of the match - not much of a consoltation admittedly.

1520: GOAL Liverpool 3-0 Blackburn
Chris Samba stretches to cut out Yossi Benayoun's through-ball but the ball goes straight into sub John Arne Riise's path. Andriy Voronin slides home Liverpool's third. Fabio Capello is off, he'll have to go some to make the 1600 BST kick-off at Old Trafford.

1516: TEAM NEWS Man Utd v Arsenal
Manchester United welcome back Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney after they were rested for the Champions League in midweek, while Patrice Evra and Paul Scholes also return to the side. Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann is back in the team alongside Alexandre Song, Gilberto Silva and Robin van Persie. Philippe Senderos is dropped from the squad altogether. Manuel Almunia is also missing from the bench.

1514: Alan Wiley is waving away another Liverpool penalty appeal. Steven Gerrard is sprawling in the area but Chris Samba barely touched him. I think that's what you call a dive.

1512: GOAL Liverpool 2-0 Blackburn
Steven Gerrard swings over the cross from the right and Fernando Torres pulls away from his marker at the far post to nod home the second. The super Spaniard becomes the first Liverpool player to score in seven successive top-flight games at Anfield. It's also his 22nd Premier League goal of the season.

1511: Fernando Torres plays a one-two with Steven Gerrard but is robbed in the area by Brett Emerton - a brilliant challenge.

1509: Steven Gerrard's late sliding challenge on David Bentley hands Blackburn a free-kick about 35 yards out. Bentley's effort flies a nano-millimetre wide with Pepe Reina beaten.

1505: As Roberts continues to harangue the ref about those two incidents, David Dunn and Benni McCarthy comes on for Blackburn, replacing Johann Vogel and Morten Gamst Pedersen.

1503: "There is no way any other Liverpool defender would have caught Jason Roberts then. That was a red card."
BBC Radio 5 Live's Mark Lawrenson

1502: Skrtel and Roberts clash again, but this time the Liverpool man is penalised for a blatant shove. The visiting fans want a red - but it's only a yellow.

1501: Martin Skrtel misses his kick and then Jason Roberts falls over under a challenge from the Liverpool defender - no free-kick.

1458: "The game has passed Blackburn midfielder Johann Vogel by really."
BBC Radio 5 Live's Mark Lawrenson

1450: GOAL Liverpool 1-0 Blackburn
Blackburn give the ball away as they try to play out of defence and are fully punished. Steven Gerrard plays a one two with Lucas before nutmegging Chris Samba and driving into the box, deceiving Brad Friedel with his low finish. Lovely goal and a nice way to celebrate his 300th Premier League appearance.

1449: Ryan Babel - who has been massively disappointing - is on his way off to be replaced by Yossi Benayoun. Straight swap on the left of Liverpool's midfield.

1447: Chris Samba is penalised for dragging back Ryan Babel on the left. Brad Friedel punches away Steven Gerrard's free-kick but Lucas was offside anyway. Looks like Yossi Benayoun is coming on for Liverpool...

1445: The ball comes out to Lucas on the edge of the box but he doesn't connect properly and his volley goes well wide.

1442: "Brad Friedel is like a sweeper for Blackburn. He knew exactly what Gerrard was going to do when he drew his right foot back and was ready for it."
BBC Radio 5 Live's Mark Lawrenson

1438: Good keeping from Brad Friedel, who clutches Steven Gerrard's low cross with Ryan Babel waiting to tap in.

1436: Away we go again. Fernando Torres goes for goal straight from kick-off - high and wide.

1433: As you were... Celtic are back in front now. I'm hoping for a more lively second half at Anfield - not least because I need five goals in today's two Prem games if I'm going to clean up in the office sweepstake.

1427: A fabulous own goal in the clash between Celtic and Motherwell in the SPL as Stephen McManus slices a clearance into his own net. Just to add insult to injury, the Motherwell player's shot was not even on target. That's 1-1.
Live - Motherwell v Celtic

1422: That wasn't a brilliant first half, it has to be said. Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard are neck and neck on Player Rater with 7.42. Keeper Brad Freidel leads the way for Blackburn on a round seven.

1419: HALF-TIME Liverpool 0-0 Blackburn

1414: "Playing on the right took the pressure off Dirk Kuyt in terms of scoring goals."
BBC Radio 5 Live's Mark Lawrenson

1411: What a run by Fernando Torres, driving down the left before winning a free-kick after tangling with Brett Emerton. Dirk Kuyt heads wide from less than six yards.

1408: Brilliant work from David Bentley, who manages to keep the ball despite slipping under a challenge and delivers a reverse pass for Roque Santa Cruz. The striker's angled shot is well saved by Pepe Reina.

1405: "This is why you shouldn't have a woman doing football commentary. Couldn't be more obvious that Cheese fancies Gerrard. How about a bit less bias and admit Gerrard dived?"
AJT_1989 on 606

1358: Steven Gerrard's on the ground again. He and Chris Samba go for a header on the edge of the box but Samba opts to take out Gerrard rather than the ball. Gerrard - who by the way did not appeal for that penalty a few minutes ago - is outraged when he does not win a free-kick. Seconds later, Gerrard's shot is deflected wide - but he is fed by Dirk Kuyt, who was offside when he received the ball.

1355: It's like football on ice at the moment. The downpour has clearly made the Anfield pitch very slippery and the players are really struggling to keep their feet.

1350: Steven Gerrard charges into the area, takes a touch and is brought down by Brad Friedel on the left-hand edge of the box. Ref Alan Wiley wags his finger to indicate no pen. Gerrard would never have got to the ball, and Friedel did his best to get out of the way of the midfielder. Still, you've seen them given.

1349: A worrying moment for Ryan Nelsen as he slices an attempted clearance from Steven Gerrard's cross. Keeper collects though. It's tipping down at Anfield which probably didn't help Nelsen's cause.

1346: Fernando Torres skips past the challenge of Ryan Nelsen but is robbed on the edge of the box by a brilliantly-timed tackle from ex-Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock.

1344: Dirk Kuyt cushions a pass for Fabio Aurelio in the box but the Brazilian's volley flies well wide.

1342: Liverpool go so close. Steven Gerrard drives a delicious free-kick in from the left but Fernando Torres's glancing header goes just wide.

1338: Blackburn have a free-kick for Lucas' foul on Johann Vogel. David Bentley takes, Xabi Alonso heads clear, but the ball is put back over the top for Jason Roberts to slot in. He's flagged offside - but he was level you know.

1333: And we're under way.

1332: Players and fans observe an impeccable minute's silence in memory of those who died in the Hillsborough disaster 19 years ago. Both teams are wearing black armbands.

1328: Here come the teams. Ryan Babel is all smiles. He's back in the starting line-up after coming off the bench to win a penalty and score against Arsenal in midweek.

1325: Will Dirk Kuyt score today? He hasn't bagged a Premier League goal since November. Fernando Torres, meanwhile, has scored 19 of his 21 league goals at Anfield so he's almost a certainty to find the net.

1318: Rafa Benitez is not too worried about Liverpool not being up for this game after the momentous win over Arsenal in midweek. "We've talked about that and I think we'll be ready." He's told his team about Schalke's 5-1 defeat to Werder Bremen on Saturday as a warning of what can happen. Although Schalke went out of the Champions League, so not quite the same.

1314: Your texts are being buried amid an avalanche of messages of support for today's plucky Marathon runners. However, I have learnt that former Arsenal and Liverpool midfielder Michael Thomas is making his way round the course in aid of the Alder Hey Children's Hospital's IMAGINE Appeal. Nice.

1310: REM's 'What's the frequency Kenneth?' is the tune of choice at Anfield. An interesting choice.

1307: "The fella wants out and he's just going to go round upsetting everyone until that happens. The sooner he and George Gillett get together and sort it out between them, the better."
BBC Radio 5 Live's Mark Lawrenson on troublesome Liverpool owner Tom Hicks

1300: "How about all you lot stop fantasising about which team Bentley would be best suited for, because guess what, he's actually under contract with Blackburn for over three years yet! You can keep your dirty mitts off him. I remember what Liverpool did last time they "swooped" for our best player, Craig Bellamy. Barely used him then spat him out a year later with a two million profit. (Yes I am just a little bit resentful)"

1251: "There is no reason why Bentley can't get a place at Chelsea, Joe Cole on the left wing instead of Florent Malouda (who's failing to find his feet in the Prem) and Bentley on the right, as Cole and Bentley are both good with both feet, then they can continuously swap flanks to confuse the opposition. I would love it if Bentley was at Chelsea."

1246: TEAM NEWS Liverpool v Blackburn
Liverpool make three changes from the team that knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League in midweek. Lucas comes in for the suspended Javier Mascherano while Alvaro Arbeloa replaces Sami Hyypia, who drops to the bench. Ryan Babel starts in place of the injured Peter Crouch. Blackburn boss Mark Hughes makes one change from the team that drew with Tottenham last time out with Brett Emerton replacing Andre Ooijer in defence.

1229: Well. I never thought I'd see the day. The stat at 1218 was taken directly from the Match of the Day commentators' notes. And it's wrong. As Script Writer on 606 points out, Blackburn beat Liverpool 1-0 in the Premier League on Boxing Day 2006. So in fact, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last one match against Rovers in all competitions.

1226: And will Blackburn winger David Bentley be lining up against his future club? Sunday's paper talk reckons Liverpool and Chelsea will fight it out to sign the England man for 15m. Anyone else hoping Benitez and Grant literally fight it out?

1218: Fourth-placed Liverpool can stretch their lead over Everton to five points with victory over Blackburn in the 1330 BST kick-off. The Reds have not lost to Blackburn in 14 matches.
