Manchester United vs Liverpool

Neither side are in form but the ramifications could be huge for both sides after Erik ten Hag’s side were hammered last time out at Brentford, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds slipping up at home to Crystal Palace.

Defeat against their bitter rivals could see the Red Devils spiral further down, while the visitors cannot afford to slip up again with Manchester City hitting the ground running in the title race.

What is the team news?

There has been talk of Lisandro Martinez being deployed at holding midfield ahead of the visit of Liverpool, as Erik ten Hag faces a pressure match at Old Trafford. The United manager made three changes at half-time as his side were 4-0 down to Brentford and Raphael Varane and Tyrell Malacia could start after making introductions from the bench. Anthony Martial is nearing a return but will not be fit enough to start so Cristiano Ronaldo should lead the line again.

Darwin Nunez will serve the first match of his three-game suspension following his red card against Crystal Palace. He joins a lengthy injury list that already includes Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate. Joel Matip is a doubt so Nat Phillips could again fill in at centre-back alongside Virgil van Dijk if he is preferred to Joe Gomez. Roberto Firmino could lead the line alongside Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz, while Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho should see minutes.

Predicted line-ups

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

When is Man Utd vs Liverpool?

Man United vs Liverpool will kick-off at 8pm on Monday, August 22 at Old Trafford.

The last meeting between these two sides came just six weeks ago, when goals from Jadon Sancho, Fred, Anthony Martial and Facundo Pellistri helped United to a 4-0 victory over the Reds in their first pre-season friendly of the summer in Bangkok.

However, the last competitive meeting between the two sides came back in April, when goals from Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane and a Mohamed Salah doubled earned Liverpool a 4-0 victory over the Red Devils at Anfield in the Premier League.
