    • 90+4' All over - Suarez's handballed goal is the difference between the sides after a brilliant second half from Mansfield.
    • 92+3' Suarez wins a free-kick to take the pressure off. Four minutes being added on.
    • 90+2' Geohaghon throws long again and when the ball comes back out, his low cross is fallen on at the near post by Jones.
    • 90+1' Green with a pop that Jones palms away. Excellent effort.
    • 90' Flag up against Green, who was offside on this occasion.
    • 90' The free-kick is headed away and Coates clears the rebound.
    • 89' Jones with a jittery clearance under pressure. Rhead then taken out by Reds youngster Flanagan near the corner flag - yellow card.
    • 87' Geohaghon hurls in another throw-in that Carragher nods away at the near post under pressure.
    • 86' Green free a few yards out from a flick-on but the flag goes up... harsh again! Jones makes the save anyway, but Mansfield have been very hard-done-by by the officials today.
    • 85' Great pressure from the home players to force Liverpool to hit long. They can't keep the ball though.
    • 84' A long throw comes in which comes off a Liverpool man on its way across goal - but a goal-kick is awarded.
    • 83' The Stags send a free-kick into the mixer, hacked away...
    • 81' Mansfield change: Matthew Rhead on for Clements.
    • 79' GOAL FOR MANSFIELD! 2-1! Daniel's cross to the far side is tapped back on the volley by Beevers and Green fires home from inside the box!
    • 79' Liverpool change: Jon Flanagan on for Wisdom.
    • 78' Wisdom down with cramp. Downing helps him before realising that the ball is back in play and leaving him to his agony...
    • 77' Downing gets to the right byline and finds Shelvey on the far side, who controls with his chest and volleys wide of the near post.
    • 75' The fire is going out of Mansfield as Liverpool keep the ball in defence.
    • 73' The crowd today is seven and a half thousand. Ninety-six seats behind the goal remember the Hillsborough dead, who are named on them: a nice gesture from Mansfield to Liverpool.
    • 72' Another penalty shout for Manfield, but Andre Marriner blows for offside. Green was just off.
    • 71' Howell cuts in from the left but cannot see a shot. Daniel out on the left then sends a deflected cross to the near post where Jones just makes the stop. Awkward moment.
    • 69' After an easy start, it has been far from plain sailing for Liverpool today - indeed they are lucky to be winning.
    • 68' Appeals for a penalty as the ball comes in but Liverpool clear and Downing counters down the right. He finds Suarez who helps the ball on to Shelvey, who is in on the left... his strike is across goal.
    • 67' Wisdom concedes a corner. There is still time for Mansfield.
    • 66' The Stags fans still behind their players, who are giving everything on the bobbly pitch.
    • 64' Mansfield change: Colin Daniel on for Briscoe. /// @Murray_Hughes (just before the goal): "Pretty even game both sides playing well even though most of liverpools best players are missing!"
    • 64' Green in behind on the left, but bends his shot over the bar.
    • 62' Mansfield boss Paul Cox is still steaming down there. But what was Suarez supposed to do? Give up the goal? What do you think? Tweet me @symco_eurosport
    • 60' Unlucky for Mansfield - and they were pressuring so well, a goal looked on the cards for them.
    • 59' GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! SUAREZ - WITH HIS HAND! 2-0! He even shows his hand to the home fans in acknowledgement of the accident - his shot was saved by Marriott and the ball came back off him.
    • 56' First chance for the Uruguayan - he fires wide with the outside of his boot.
    • 55' Two changes for Liverpool as they come under intense pressure: Luis Suarez on for Sturridge and Jordan Henderson on for Suso.
    • 54' At the other end Sturridge has space in the box but fires wide of the far post.
    • 53' Geohaghon leaps to head thunderously towards goal, with Jones blocking, then Green almost scores from two yards out with a great jumping backheel! It hit Allen on the arm... another penalty shout denied!
    • 53' Briscoe pounding down the right as Robinson flies back to cut it out - handball to Mansfield, surely, on the edge of the box... or just inside? - then Briscoe fires wide of the near post. Corner to Mansfield - Jones saved.
    • 52' Clements sends a ball into the box and Beevers wins a header before Meikle finds Green whose shot is just blocked! Desperate defending again.
    • 51' Huge pressure at the start of this half by the Conference National side.
    • 50' Another cross, this time from the left, almost gives Mansfield an equaliser as Jones is unsighted by a defender and the ball jumps out of his grasp.
    • 49' Jones and Coates unable to deal with a cross from the right and Town have a corner.
    • 48' Briscoe fires in a shot that Liverpool block, and back come Mansfield...
    • 48' The free-kick causes chaos in the Liverpool box as first Green then Howell see shots blocked.
    • 47' Sturridge jumps to block a John Thompson clearance. He does not manage to do so but picks up a harsh yellow card as he lands next to the Mansfield man's foot.
    • 46' Lindon Meikle on the left for Stags, finding Howell at the near post whose strike is deflected just wide!
    • 46' Mansfield in yellow and blue now attacking the goal to our left.
    • - Brendan Rodgers hotfoots it across the muddy pitch in his gleaming shoes as the teams wait to kick off again.

    • - So what do you make of Sturridge in the first half? For me, he should have scored more but he has looked lively - and has linked well with Shelvey. Tweet me @symco_eurosport
    • 45+1' Jamie Carragher concedes a throw in his defensive third - but there is no time for Mansfield to take it as the solitary minute of added time has passed.
    • 45+1' Coates rises to head the ball in just wide of the post.
    • 45' Shelvey releases Sturridge on the right and his low strike is just wide of the far post. Marriott gets a touch - corner to Liverpool.

    • 43' A quiet period towards the end of the half, but Mansfield have the ball.
    • 41' The home fans unhappy as Howell is penalised for a foul on Lucas as Town look to attack.
    • 40' There are kids in the trees... kids in the trees. Wouldn't you be better off watching on telly, lads?
    • 39' Beevers flings in a long throw, headed away. Geohaghon takes the next one... and again it is cleared.
    • 38' Lucas now goes into the book for holding Green as he shields the ball.
    • 38' Wisdom leaps to meet it, but cannot get a header on goal.
    • 37' Beevers booked for a foul on Sturridge. Suso to swing in the free-kick.
    • 37' Louis Briscoe penalised for a foul on Allen in the Liverpool half.
    • 36' Green goes too early and the offside flag is up against him.
    • 34' Electric from Sturridge to break down the right and to the byline where Shelvey arrives for the cut-back - excellent defending from Geohaghon to prevent a chance.
    • 33' Green picks up and has plenty of space to rifle at goal from 25 yards out - Jones parries away.
    • 32' Poor low long throw from Geohaghon, headed away easily at the near post.
    • 31' Geohaghon with a long ball down the right touchline for Green, who wins a throw near the corner flag.
    • 30' Liverpool head clear a Mansfield free-kick, but the Stags win the ball back and start again.
    • 29' Shelvey sent through on the counter, but Exodus Geohaghon does enough to put him off and Marriott makes the save.
    • 28' Sebastian Coates and Matt Green contesting a 50-50 inside the Liverpool box - and the Uruguayan does well to come out with the ball otherwise Green would have been in on goal.
    • 27' Jack Robinson with a give-and-go on the left, felled by home captain Murray.
    • 25' Downing skins a defender and pulls the trigger from the left but Clements is back to block superbly on the slide.
    • 24' Liverpool counter, with Mansfield keeper Marriott just able to snatch a long ball ahead of Sturridge near the byline.
    • 23' Ah, what a sight - the ball heading over the back of the stand. Shame they don't have to wait for five minutes for it to be thrown back these days...
    • 21' Lucas with a poor tackle on midfielder Murray to give Mansfield a free-kick. From that they win a throw on the right.
    • 20' Wisdom has a chance to shoot from close on the right - only to be denied by a great block from Adam Murray.
    • 19' The Stags were relegated from the Football League in 2008 after 77 years.
    • 17' Shelvery's cross is headed away by Lee Beevers. Easy for Liverpool so far.
    • 16' Suso's kick is into the wall and Shelvey's follow-up volley is even worse, well wide of goal.
    • 16' He looked offside from the replays. Free-kick to the Reds 30 yards out on the right.
    • 15' Great save by Marriott! Shelvey again puts Sturridge in behind and the former Chelsea striker 'has too much time' - the keeper makes a superb block. Should have been two.
    • 14' Promising counter for the Stags, but Anthony Howell's attempt to pick out a striker with his through-ball is too strong and Jones is there to claim.
    • 13' Downing wins a corner. It is played short and Joe Allen fires in a grass-cutter that Marriott gets down well to save and hold.
    • 12' Chris Clements's shot is blocked by the wall.
    • 11' Free-kick to Mansfield 30 yards out as Andre Wisdom fouls.
    • 9' Sturridge almost in again after a weak backpass but Alan Marriott is out quickly to fall on it. The striker did get a touch...
    • 7' GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! 1-0! AND IT IS DEBUTANT DANIEL STURRIDGE! Shelvey threads a great ball through and the striker scores his ninth goal in 12 FA Cup games with three different clubs.
    • 7' Very sticky surface, which will certainly suit Mansfield.
    • 6' First attack from Masfield comes to nothing as Brad Jones comes out quickly to claim.
    • 5' Liverpool keeping the ball with Allen in the corner. Suso turns out of a challenge and sprints into space to fire over the bar from 25 yards. Good effort.
    • 4' Stewart Downing looks to strike from the edge of the box and John Thompson blocks. Corner to Liverpool.
    • 3' Jonjo Shelvey down the left looking to cross, but Mansfield defend.
    • 2' Liverpool keeping the ball early on on a pitch which looks likely to cut up later.
    • 1' Off we go, with Liverpool kicking from right to left in the first half.
    • 15:59 After a delay the players emerge at Field Mill, where there is a This is Mansfield sign today.
    • 15:50 Mansfield manager Paul Cox on getting married on Friday: “We were due to be married in June so once we got to the third round draw, she said we’d bring it forward and do it before the Liverpool game. I said yes but we hadn’t beaten Lincoln in the second round replay yet. As soon as we did, the first thing the chairman said was, ‘Congratulations’. I said, ‘Thanks, it was a great result’. He said, ‘No, I mean on the marriage’!” Honeymoon incentive for boss
    • 15:45 The fourth round draw has just been made at Wembley and the winners of this tie get a glamorous trip to... Oldham! It may not be a blockbuster, but it does offer a very real chance of a place in the last 16. FA Cup: fourth round draw

  1. Critters at No 363. First let me congratulate you for­ stating the truth and the obvious. I am afraid some­ irate fans will come after you just as they have been­ doing to me for the past three years with all their­ insults and abusive languages. They are not real­ Liverpool fans as they don't care what position­ Liverpool occupies in the EPL. As far as they are­ concerned Liverpool might as well be playing in the­ Championship, it does not concern them a bit as long as­ they have a place to go to on Saturday or Sunday­ afternoons to make their noise. They are ready to­ circumvent the truth at the expense of LFC. Please when­ they start abusing you, just ignore them as silence is­ the right answer for fools like them.I agree 1000% with­ everything you have said about the state of things at­ Liverpool. But no one seems to have any solution to the­ problems that have been facing Liverpool for the past­ few years. The problems seem more deep rooted than just­ changing the managers. The Board needs to change the­ entire buying policy of LFC so that when players like­ Ba come on the market we don't lose to clubs like­ Chelsea, United, City, or even Spurs and Arsenal who­ are lready head and shoulder above us in terms of­ quality. These clubs buy all the good players at­ ridiculously low prices and we buy all the rejects for­ astronomical amounts. Players that are hardly good­ enough even to play in the Championship.

    From O.S., on Mon 7 Jan 20:17
  2. I think we are all missing the point here & that is­ Liverpool FC is in a right mess, some players are not­ playing for the pride of wearing a Liverpool shirt just­ at Liverpool for the brill wages they get, some players­ don't care about the fans or club, they have their­ fancy homes, cars, their kids go to posh schools etc­ etc so they have nothing to worry about but what about­ the poor fans who don't have this kind of cash to­ throw around but still go to every home & away­ game, these players should think themselves very lucky!­ I really don't get what Brenda Rogers is trying to­ do at Liverpool but whatever it is, it is not working,­ he is buying players he likes from teams he as worked­ at or manager but are these players suitable for­ Liverpool ???? does he give that any thought before­ buying them ???? I don't see why we got rid of­ Charlie Adams he is what we need in midfield right now,­ a player who can hold the ball up & as quick­ thinking of where he wants the ball to go, we are­ getting rid of to many good players the ones who give­ 100% when given the chance to play, just look at Joe­ Cole again another player Liverpool need right now but­ not in the eyes of Rodgers. Yes I think Sturridge could­ be a good player for Liverpool but at what cost to­ other players in the team. I think Rodgers should be­ sacked bring a top manager in, one who as the balls to­ have a go at players not giving 100% to the team, one­ who will get rid of the players who are only there for­ the money. I can see a number of our top players­ leaving Liverpool in the summer because they can see­ being at Liverpool they are not going to win anything!

  3. Suarez is a good but dishonest fellow, he stop ball­ with his hand when his country Urugua was playing­ against Ghana, the good ref listen to the protest and­ Suarez was sent off, but yeserday, honestly the­ officiating was very poor because Liverpool players­ stop ball with hand two or three times before­ suarez's handscore.

  9. Suarez knew he handed the ball and didn't really­ celebrated the goal. If he was to admit to the referee­ of the hand ball he would have been dropped by Rodgers.­ Rodgers need all the luck in the world as it can be­ seen that LFC was on the backfoot for most of the game.­ Shame on Rodgers again and again for always fielding­ weak sides against lower table teams. If LFC had lost­ it would really show how incapable of a coach he is for­ a big name club.

    From carl, on Sun 6 Jan 23:40
  10. I am a swansea city supporter and i would like to say­ how proud mansfield should be with themselves against­ liverpool today. They showed what football is all­ about. They showed respect to all the families of the­ 96 who tragically passed away by leaving 96 seats­ empty. Well done mansfield, you done your club proud­ today

    From Alan, on Sun 6 Jan 23:17
  11. what a heck, messi as also scored with a hand, and­ instead he was compared to maradona! cause now­ suarez did it too, he's being crucified! that's­ not fair! shame on you!

    From KhabraL, on Sun 6 Jan 22:11
  12. Suarez not a cheat, these things happen in the game,­ this is why we need officals behind the goalpost, then­ I am sure there be a lot more goals being disallowed, I­ do agree Suarez should of gone to ref & asked for­ the goal to be disallowed. I also agree to make this­ really fair, lets play the game again but give this non­ league a chance to play at a good ground & play it­ at Anfield but do in a away that it's a home game­ for Mansfield & the get more of the profit for the­ match. COME ON LIVERPOOL LET'S US THE WORLD HOW­ FAIR WE REALLY ARE!

    From , on Sun 6 Jan 21:41
  13. I thinks Suarez is not to be blamed but the match­ officials...there are offside goals allowed or­ disallowed,penalties given or cancelled some many­ mistakes so who is to be blamed when is in suarez­ favor?

    From Mike, on Sun 6 Jan 21:20
  14. You can blame the player We all know LIVERPOOL IS FULL­ OF ROBBING BARSTEWARDS not only the players but every­ one.

    when will this stupid player of liverpoil stop holding­ ball with his hand, is that the ways he play football:)­ he has done it many time s now, he did it in the world­ cup,,,,,he is a total mess footballer:) these can­ only be done in the english football:) i really hate­ his football style s... united is the best when it come­ s to english football

    From syl, on Sun 6 Jan 20:03
  17. Its sad most players don't have the integrity to­ do what is right. In a Serie A game this year, Klose­ gave back a goal for Lazio cause he knew the ball went­ in off his arm. Henry and Suarez might very well be­ great players, but they have absolutely no merit when­ concerning fair play and justice as far as the game is­ concerned. I will say with Henry, it was more isolated,­ where is with Suarez, from the cup or just his overall­ please don't defend me attitude, or i will most­ certainly dive routine is completely obnoxious. I mean­ i am a huge Ajax supporter and he is a great talent but­ his stupid faces and squints lead to me believe he­ delusional in the context of not being able to accept­ defeat. Oh yeah and let me put Robben in there right­ with him. As far as Rogers stating it was­ unintentional, well like Rogers alot, but if he's­ honest with himself and not just looking to­ defend/protect his own player and/or ego, then­ he'll clearly see the intent on the play. Amyways,­ spoke my peace and big up to Mansfield, every neutral­ was pullin for you and though Suarez will be able to­ look himself in the mirror, again and again, you and­ your fans played,supported with both guts and passion

    From Adam, on Sun 6 Jan 19:58
  18. Luiz suarez is a cheat and the spirit in which football­ is played has been jeopodised because of one players­ actions

    From John, on Sun 6 Jan 19:30
  19. I do wonder what the decision would have been had it­ been a non league team scoring against a premier league­ team
