Manchester United will be looking to tighten their grip on fourth place with a win when they welcome title-chasing Liverpool to Old Trafford this afternoon.
United have been handed a blow ahead of the game as Nemanja Matic has been ruled out after picking up an injury in training on Friday so Scott McTominay comes in to the midfield alongside Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera.
Anthony Martial also misses out for United after failing to recover from a groin injury so Romelu Lukaku keeps his place in attack. Jesse Lingard is only fit enough for a place on the bench so Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata support Lukaku.
As for Liverpool, they’ve made two changes with James Milner coming in for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back while Virgil van Dijk comes straight back in to the defence alongside Joel Matip after being suspended in the Champions League.
Fabinho moves in to midfield alongside Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane once again supporting Roberto Firmino in attack.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
De Gea, Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Herrera, McTominay, Pogba, Mata, Rashford, Lukaku.
Subs: Bailly, Sanchez, Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Fred, Dalot, Romero
Alisson, Milner, van Dijk, Matip, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Subs: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Lallana, Keita, Shaqiri, Origi, Sturridge
