By on January 15, 2017

Manchester United entertain fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho has recalled Marcos Rojo to his defence with Chris Smalling dropping to the bench while Michael Carrick comes back in to the midfield alongside Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is passed fit to start up front and is supported by Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial.

Jurgen Klopp has been forced to hand youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold a rare start as Nathaniel Clyne has been ruled out with an abdominal injury but Jordan Henderson is fit to start in midfield.

Liverpool have chosen not to select Joel Matip after seeking assurances from FIFA over his availability as Cameroon have failed to confirm that the defender is able to play for his club having refused selection for the AFCON.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd

De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Darmian; Carrick, Herrera, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Martial; Ibrahimovic

Subs: Mata, Rooney, Smalling, Blind, Rashford, Romero, Fellaini

Liverpool

Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Klavan, Milner; Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum; Lallana, Firmino, Origi.
