Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Fred were all questionable heading into the game.

 

Summer signing Raphael Varane remains out due to injury sustained in the UEFA Nations League.

Chelsea’s win at the weekend puts even more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side heading into this fixture.

The Blues currently have an eight point lead over United, while Liverpool can extend their gap to seven points with a win.

So it is crucial United beat Liverpool today to start closing the gap on the teams above us.

United entered the day in sixth, level on points with West Ham, Everton, and Arsenal.
