FT Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United

58’ Fantastic chance for Martial who creates it himself with a one-two. His shot just keeps rising over the bar.

48’ Now Henderson hits the post. A great start to the second half from Liverpool. De Gea just tipped it onto the right post after Henderson had huge space outside the box.

47’ A golden chance for Mo Salah. Robertson’s low cross comes in and he should stick it past De Gea from close range but he fluffs it.

45’ Back underway at Anfield. Liverpool have had two goals disallowed but lead 1-0 at home against United.

HT 1-0 to Liverpool after Van Dijk’s 14th minute header.

26’ VAR says no goal. De Gea is adjudged to be fouled by Van Dijk. United are let off.

GOAL: There will be a VAR check but Firmino has capitalised. De Gea thinks he’s been fouled, so do his United teammates and they let Firmino score.

GOAL: Virgil Van Dijk puts Liverpool ahead against the run of play. He outjumps Brandon Williams and Harry Maguire and heads over De Gea’s head. 14 minutes gone, 1-0.

9’ It’s an even start to proceedings at Anfield. United had an early chance as James broke clear but his cross to Martial was poor.

Brandon Williams has started on the left wing rather than at left back meaning United are playing with a back four.

The teams are out of the tunnel at Anfield and lining up in the Sunday evening chill. Kick off is minutes away.

Kick-off imminent

Just over 10 minutes until kick-off at Anfield where the Liverpool fans have never been more confident of victory over their arch rivals.

Rashford injury update

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford is out for a few weeks:

"Rashford? He’s aggravated his back, he’s had some trouble. We’re going to give him time to recover and rest before we put him back on the pitch. I wouldn’t expect him to be back in the next few weeks. Mid-season break? I’m not sure we’ll see him before then.” 

Liverpool starting XI

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Manchester United starting XI

De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Williams; Matic, Fred, Pereira; James, Martial.

Liverpool have had more rest than Manchester United this week, with the visitors forced into a FA Cup replay by Wolves. Not only that, but they're clearly the far superior team. And yet, this is the North-West derby and so people are careful to predict any kind of easy game for Jurgen Klopp's side. Tweet your prediction in to @VAVEL.

Manchester United: team news

United have serious midfield woes with their main partnership of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay unavailable. The big news surrounds Marcus Rashford, the recently prolific 22-year-old who picked up a back injury in an FA Cup Third Round replay against Wolves. Some reports suggest a possible fracture which would rule Rashford out for some time. Others are less certain. That is the big thing to watch out for. Eric Bailly is back for United after surgery on his knee kept him out since pre-season. 

Liverpool: team news

Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are available to make a return from injury for Liverpool. Naby Keita, Nathaniel Clyne, Fabio Tavares and James Milner all remain on the sidelines. 

Manchester United expect nothing but a loss

For England's most successful club, Manchester United go in with very low expectations at Anfield today. That's quite often the case, but just like in December 2018 when they were beaten 3-1 and Jose Mourinho was sacked, few expect a draw or a win. Liverpool have blown away too many teams at home, and United fans expect them to continue that trend.

Liverpool in top form, as always

Liverpool have not just been great this season, but consistent, too. The Premier League leaders went almost all of 2019 unbeaten. But Manchester United were the side they somewhat slipped up against back in October. Their rivals are the only side to take points off them in a 1-1 draw. 

This game has massive significance for both sides. If Manchester United can pull off a win, it will end Liverpool's incredible unbeaten run. And so if the home side can beat United, it will lay down a marker for the rest of the season as they still have their eyes on a potential treble or invincible Premier League campaign.

Kick-off time

The Liverpool vs Manchester United match will be played at Anfield in Liverpool, England. The kick-off is scheduled at 16:30 GMT.
