Scott McTominay got the Red Devils off to a flyer but Alexis Mac Allister and Mo Salah put the visitors ahead before the break – with both goals enraging Roy Keane.

Substitute Antony struck at the end of normal time to send the clash into extra-time, only for Harvey Elliott’s deflected effort to restore Liverpool’s lead.

Marcus Rashford struck late on to seemingly send it to penalties – but there would be another, late, dramatic twist.

Another sub, Amad Diallo, fired home after a counter-attack in the final seconds to win it 4-3.

However, Amad’s celebrations were cut-short after he removed his shirt and got sent-off after picking up his second booking.

As Ten Hag chased the game in normal time, he firstly introduced Antony and Harry Maguire off the bench, with both going on to have huge impacts.

Christian Eriksen replaced Kobbie Mainoo in midfield before the Dutchman went a little more gung-ho as centre-back Raphael Varane made way with only a few minutes left and the matchwinner Diallo took his place.

However, after Antony’s late leveller that forced Ten Hag into a reshuffle in extra time, but before any major changes were made, they found themselves trailing again through Elliott.

At the break of the additional thirty minutes, Ten Hag had one last throw of the dice as tried to put the Reds on the backfoot.

Midfielder Mason Mount came on for defender Victor Lindelof, and that resulted in skipper Bruno Fernandes moving back and finishing the match at centre-half as the ambitious change paid off for United.

“I know we were outplayed for long spells and there are some recurring issues but we hung on in there and we got a result.
