The game is being shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League, with the build-up to the game starting at 4pm.

For whose who do not have Sky Sports, there are highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC1 at 10.30pm.

Manchester United team news

Erik ten Hag told his pre-match press conference that Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho should be back this weekend after missing the midweek 3-1 win over West Ham.

Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are longer term absentees, while Anthony Martial has not played since 1 February and is continuing his fitness battle.

Liverpool v Manchester United: Our prediction

United have not won this fixture at Anfield since January 2016, but they are the team with the momentum ahead of the game.

It is never an easy game, no matter where Liverpool are in the table and they will be looking at this fixture as a catalyst to turn their season around somewhat.

We’ll go for United to win 2-1, continuing their run of scoring at least twice to 13 matches in a row, equalling a record which has stood since 1959.
