Liverpool and Manchester United face off against each other once again this evening as the under-21’s clash at Prenton Park in the Under-21 Premier League.

Following on from their Europa League meeting last night, Liverpool and Manchester United face off against each other once again this evening as the under-21’s clash at Prenton Park in the Under-21 Premier League.

The Reds have taken the opportunity to give some of their first team players a run out with Martin Skrtel starting at the back as he looks to work on his match fitness having recently recovered from a long-term hamstring injury.

On-loan defender Steven Caulker also starts at the back alongside Skrtel, while the likes of Connor Brannagan and Sheyji Ojo also get run outs.

United have also handed a start to first team regular Antonio Valencia as he makes his first appearance since recovering from a broken foot which he suffered back in October.

Adnan Januzaj, Andreas Pereira and Paddy McNair are also in the United squad tonight.

Here are the starting line-ups:
