Elanga with beautiful feet! He beats Trent and the Liverpool right back fouls him in a bid to stop him. United wins a freekick. A yellow card for Trent.

23’

Liverpool brings the ball from the right flank with Salah’s dribble. The Egyptian is unable to find a way through. The Reds’ eventually find a way down the right side but Milner is unable to chase the through ball and its a goal kick for United.

17’ Manchester United scores! Leads 1-0
Sublime from Sancho! He gets a pass from the left flank. He fakes a shot which sends Milner flying past. He then turns back to the goal and finds the left corner as Van Dijk can only look at the ball fly past him.
14’

Fernandes pin points a pass to Eriksen in the middle of the penalty area but there’s too many Liverpool shirts in the box to allow a shot

10’ United hits the woodwork!
United is tearing the central defence of Liverpool. This time it is Fernandes who breaks away down the middle. Alisson rushes forward to block the run but only deflects the ball into Elanga’s path. Elanga with an open goal in front of him hits the shot onto the right goal post.
8’

The corner has too much weight and fails to find any United shirt and the attack fizzles out to nothing.

7’

Martinez with the free kick. He goes for power but fails to clear the wall. The ball takes a deflection and goes for a corner.

7’

Another good run by United’s No. 10 and Trent is left chasing. He comes in with a tackle from behind but the referee stops the play for a foul. A chance for United.

4’

Rashford manages to get in behind the defensive line. But, Van Dijk recovers well and blocks the left-footed shot by Rashford. The first real burst of pace by Manchester United.

3’

The game starts at a rapid pace. Liverpool has had more ball possession so far, but they’ve not yet managed a good entry into the final third.

Kick off!

The teams are on the pitch.

We are just minutes away from kick off. Liverpool has never beaten United at Old Trafford on three consecutive visits. Can the Reds pull it off?

MANAGER’S VIEWS

Jurgen Klopp: Dropping Fabinho was a tactical call - We need to see the best lineup. The opposition lineup (without Ronaldo) is still very experienced.

Erik Ten Hag: We have a big squad and we start a team that is best for the match. We will focus on pressing and maintaining a high back line.

Here are how the substitute players for the two teams stack up:

Manchester United vs Liverpool - Substitutes
Manchester United - Tom Heaton, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Donny van de Beek, Alejandro Garnacho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Anthony Martial
