Manchester United are missing three back up defenders with centre backs Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones injured alongside left back Brandon Williams.

Marcus Rashford should return to the starting side at the expense of Mason Greenwood or Anthony Martial.

Midfielders Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic are pushing for starts at the expense of Fred.

Liverpool Form


Liverpool are six points off the top of the Premier League table as they aim to defend the title. The Reds have drawn too many matches in recent weeks with five stalemates in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Jürgen Klopp’s side lost 1-0 at Southampton despite having 67% possession and 17-7 shots. Liverpool hammered a severely weakened Aston Villa side in the FA Cup, winning 4-1 in Birmingham with Sadio Mané (2), Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah on target.

Liverpool are still missing injured centre backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. Joel Matip returned to first-team action to partner Fabinho in central defence which should continue here.

Midfielder Naby Keita is injured alongside forward Diogo Jota. Captain Jordan Henderson missed the Burnley match due to a lack of fitness and remains a doubt.

Expect Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to return to the starting side at the expense of Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. 

James Milner is a chance to start ahead of Xherdan Shaqiri in midfield or Trent Alexander-Arnold at right back.
