LIVERPOOL, England(AP) Dirk Kuyt struck a dramatic 88th minute winner to give Liverpool a 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup on Saturday and a place in the last 16.

The match between the two bitter rivals looked set for a replay after Park Ji-sung leveled for United in the 39th minute at Anfield after a rare goal by Daniel Agger had given Liverpool a 21st minute lead.

It was the first meeting between Liverpool and United since Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was handed an eight-game ban for racially abusing United defender Patrice Evra in a league game on October 15.

United's Antonio Valencia was denied by the woodwork in a thrilling encounter, which passed off without major incident.
