Liverpool entertain rivals Manchester United at Anfield this evening with both sides desperate to win the first north-west derby of the new Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp has opted to start Loris Karius in goal ahead of Simon Mignolet but Adam Lallana is only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench meaning Emre Can gets a recall.

Gini Wijnaldum is ruled out with a hamstring injury so Philippe Coutinho drops back in to a midfield role with Roberto Firmino moving out wide and Daniel Sturridge starting up front.

Anthony Martial misses out with a minor knee injury so Ashley Young gets a recall in attack while Marouane Fellaini comes in to the midfield alongside Ander Herrera. Juan Mata drops to the bench alongside Wayne Rooney.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Liverpool

Karius, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Can, Coutinho, Firmino, Henderson, Mané, Sturridge.

Subs: Mignolet, Grujic, Klavan, Moreno, Lallana, Lucas, Origi.

Man Utd

De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind; Fellaini, Pogba; Rashford, Herrera, Young; Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Rojo, Shaw, Carrick, Lingard, Mata, Rooney.
