After the dramatic Champions League win over Atalanta on Wednesday, Manchester United return to Premier League action this weekend when they host bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

United need another big result and performance here after no wins in the last three league matches.

Man United v Liverpool team news

Raphael Varane and Amad will definitely miss this game but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to rule anyone out of contention ahead of the match.

Marcus Rashford picked up a dead leg in the second half of Wednesday’s win. Fred also limped off late on, and Solskjaer admitted Bruno Fernandes is a doubt too.

Anthony Martial was ruled out of that midweek clash but trained with the squad on Thursday and could return here.

Solskjaer is trying to keep Liverpool guessing over the makeup of the side which will start this game.

Our prediction: United v Liverpool

These huge clashes are always hard to call. United’s recent performances have been unconvincing and the midfield looks too open.

Perhaps Solskjaer will look to keep it tighter here and counter-attack into the space behind the Liverpool full-backs.

Jurgen Klopp has also never managed a Liverpool team to victory in front of fans at Old Trafford.

We’re never going to do anything other than back United against the side we love to beat the most.

Our prediction: United 2-1 Liverpool
