Manchester United host Liverpool in a thrilling Premier League game tonight.
Neither side is on form but the repercussions could be huge for both sides after Erik ten Hag’s side were hammered at Brentford last time out and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds slipped at home to Crystal Palace.
A loss to their bitter rivals could see the Red Devils slip further down the ladder, while the visitors can’t afford to make another mistake as Manchester City are on the rise in the title race.
The teams met in pre-season, with United clinching a surprise 4-0 win while the Reds won both Premier League games 9-0 last season.
Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

What’s new from the team?
There has been talk of Lisandro Martinez being used in midfield ahead of the Liverpool visit as Erik ten Hag faces a pressure game at Old Trafford. The United manager made three changes at half-time when his side were 4-0 against Brentford and allowed Raphael Varane and Tyrell Malacia to start off the bench after introductions. Anthony Martial is close to a return but won’t be fit enough to start so Cristiano Ronaldo should lead the line again.
Darwin Nunez will serve the first game of his three-game suspension following his red card against Crystal Palace. He joins a long injury list that already includes Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate. Joel Matip is doubtful so Nat Phillips could step back in at centre-back alongside Virgil van Dijk if he is chosen over Joe Gomez. Roberto Firmino could lead the line alongside Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz, while Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho should see minutes.
Man United XI: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Malacia; Martinez, Fernandes, Eriksen; Rashford, Ronaldo, Sancho
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Milner; Diaz, Firmino, Salah
Man United: 9/2
Liverpool have their issues but United’s confidence is shattered, even with their moments when the Old Trafford crowd is behind them the visitors will eventually come out on top and the Red Devils have shown they can crack under sustained pressure will. Manchester United 0-2 Liverpool.
