MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United ruined Luis Suarezs long-awaited return from a 10-match ban for biting by beating Liverpool 1-0 in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday, relieving some early-season pressure on manager David Moyes. Wholesale Air Max Australia . Javier Hernandez showed a poachers instinct to volley home deftly 39 seconds into the second half, as United advanced despite fielding a largely second-string team against its fierce rival at Old Trafford. Suarez hogged the limelight on his return to club football five months after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a Premier League game and he came closest to equalizing for Liverpool, curling a free kick against the crossbar. "I thought he was excellent, considering hed been out for such a long time," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "He ran himself into the ground. As he goes on, he will get sharper." Swanseas defence of the trophy ended in abject fashion by losing 3-1 at second-tier Birmingham, while Arsenal beat West Bromwich 4-3 on penalties after the match was deadlocked 1-1 after 90 minutes to set up a fourth-round match at home to Chelsea. There were also wins for Premier League teams Newcastle and Stoke. Beating Liverpool was a huge result for Moyes, who had come under fire after presiding over Uniteds worst start to a league campaign in nine years in his first season in charge after taking over from Alex Ferguson. Only three days ago, the champions had been thrashed 4-1 by neighbour Manchester City. "I think what was important (was) that the whole club showed we were hurt by the game on Sunday, and the players have gone out and done a great job," Moyes said. "Ive said I will fix it and turn it around, and I will do." With no European football this season, Liverpool is left with just two trophies to play for and will rue that its full-strength lineup missed a great chance to beat a weakened United for a second time this season, having already won 1-0 in the league on Sept. 1. An already high-profile match was given a further edge by the comeback of Suarez, who played a World Cup qualifier for Uruguay as recently as two weeks ago but hadnt worn a Liverpool shirt for a competitive match since April 21 -- when he sunk his teeth into Ivanovics upper arm. In those five months, his relationship with the club had been severely tested after he accused Liverpools hierarchy of breaking an agreement to sell him if it failed to qualify for the Champions League. Liverpool turned down two bids from Arsenal for Suarez over the summer. He was nevertheless well-received by Liverpools travelling support at Old Trafford, although his reception from the home fans was typically hostile having been banned for eight matches in 2011 for repeatedly racially abusing United defender Patrice Evra during a league match. With Liverpool changing formation to a 3-5-2, he played up front with Daniel Sturridge, with the pair initially posing problems on the counter-attack. Suarez miscontrolled when he could have run through on goal and Sturridge toe-poked wide after getting half a yard on his marker. United was poor in possession in the first half but when Jose Enrique lost Hernandez at a corner soon after the break, the Mexico striker leapt to guide home an impudent volley from inside the six-yard box, provoking an air-punching celebration from Moyes. Suarez shot into the side netting in the 70th, then sent a free kick crashing against the bar two minutes later as United held off a strong finish by Liverpool, a record eight-time winner of the competition. "It was a massive turnaround (from the weekend), especially with players who havent played a lot of games this season," United defender Chris Smalling said. "There was a lot of doubt after the weekend so we had to go out and get a performance and we did." Swansea conceded three times in 24 second-half minutes at St. Andrews to exit the competition it won last season for a first major title in the clubs history. Wilfried Bony grabbed a late consolation for the Welsh club. Nacho Monreal scored the winning penalty for a weakened Arsenal team at The Hawthorns after Craig Dawson and Morgan Amalfitano missed the target from 12 yards for West Brom earlier in the shootout. Thomas Eisfeld put Arsenal ahead in regulation time, scoring in the 61st minute after running onto a pass from striker Nicklas Bendtner, who was making his first start for Arsenal since August 2011. Saido Berahino sent the game into extra time by equalizing 10 minutes later. Papiss Cisse scored his first goal since April in Newcastles 2-0 home win over Leeds, while Stephen Ireland and Peter Crouch were on target for Stoke in a 2-0 victory at Tranmere.

"In the third quarter, we were doing the same kind of defence, but now we were sharing the ball and making open shots and thats what the difference was," Calderon said. Bostons only scoring run in the period was a 4-0 spurt late on layups by Kris Humphries and Kelly Olynyk, which Dallas negated in the last minute on two foul shots by Harris and an alley-oop from Harris to Brandan Wright with 5 seconds remaining to give the Mavericks a 72-56 lead entering the fourth. Wright opened the fourth with another alley-oop from Carter, who added a layup for Dallas eighth point in a row and the Mavericks lead was up to 76-56. The Celtics put together a late run to make it close down the stretch before running out of time. Rondo and Green hit back-to-back 3-pointers to pull Boston within 96-84 with 2:25 remaining.
