8.15 pm: Solskajer confirms that Luke Shaw is out until the end of the season after he injured his ankle against Southampton.

POLL

 

8 pm: Former United captain and pundit Gary Neville voices his concerns about Lindelof and Maguire while speaking with broadcaster Sky Sports: 'I'm a little bit worried about Iheanacho against Lindelof. He will occupy him physically. That leaves Maguire against Vardy. It is critical that the two full-backs tie themselves to Lindelof and Maguire and don't get encouraged forward too easily.'

7.42 pm: Brendan Rodgers has gone with some cover in central midfield in the form of Hamza Choudhury and it could suggest he will sit in a midfield two with Ndidi just behind Tielemans. Albrighton, too, gets a rare start. Barnes, Perez, Gray provide attacking options of the bench.
