Liverpool take on Manchester United in a highly-anticipated game this afternoon. The Reds have bagged just one victory in their last seven outings across all competitions, and they will be hoping to reverse their fortunes versus Jose Mourinho’s men.
In contrast, Manchester United have cruised through the first two months of the campaign with six victories and a draw. They are unbeaten in all competitions this term and the Reds game is their biggest challenge yet in the early stage of the campaign.
Liverpool: Mignolet; Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno; Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum; Salah, Coutinho, Firmino. Substitutes: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sturridge, Solanke.
Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Darmian; Matic, Herrera; Young, Mkhitaryan, Martial; Lukaku. Substitutes: Romero, Blind, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Lingard, Mata, Rashford.
Both teams are without key players in Sadio Mane (hamstring) and Marouane Fellaini (knee sprain) respectively, and the match promises to be a key entertainer. Liverpool have not beaten Manchester United in their previous three league outings at Anfield with two draws and one defeat.
