Confirmed: Liverpool and Manchester United line-ups

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Here is how Liverpool and Manchester United will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Liverpool and Manchester United clash at Anfield in a huge encounter this afternoon.

Managers Brendan Rodgers and Louis van Gaal will both know just how important this fixture is, with Champions League qualification close but not close enough as things stand.

A win for United and they will create a healthy five-point gap between themselves and their nearest challengers for a top-four finish, but should Liverpool win they will have things in their own hands with games running out.

In the reverse fixture back in December United ran out 3-0 winners, but the result did not tell the whole story and Liverpool were beginning to show signs of the form that has seen them shoot up the table in 2015.

At Anfield, Liverpool are always a force, and they have only lost one of their last seven home clashes with today’s opponents.

United have lost just two of their last 19 league matches and looked more like their old selves against Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday. But in this match, anything can happen…
