After a Europa League thrashing of Roma on Thursday, Manchester United return to Premier League action this weekend when they face bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

United would seal Champions League qualification for next season with a win here – with four games to spare.

There would also be the added bonus of putting the boot into Liverpool’s own top four hopes.

What time does Man Utd v Liverpool kick-off?

Man Utd v Liverpool was due to kick off at 4.30pm. This has now been delayed after protests from fans against the Glazer family.

Liverpool have had a full week off to prepare for the game, unlike United, although that 6-2 win on Thursday should have boosted the whole squad’s confidence ahead of this huge clash.

Man Utd v Liverpool team news

Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference that he has no new injury concerns ahead of the match.


That means that Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly should be okay to play.

Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are long-term absentees, but everyone else should be in contention, barring any late issues.

Solskjaer can play his best team here, knowing that the scale of United’s Europa League advantage means he can rest anyone who needs it in Italy on Thursday.

Our prediction: United v Liverpool

These huge clashes are always hard to call.

There have been some boring games between the sides in recent years, but the aforementioned FA Cup clash was a thrilling, end-to-end affair.

United are the side in better form and playing under less pressure so should be well-placed to exploit Liverpool’s persistent defensive weaknesses.

The Reds have also been wasteful in front of goal of late, so while United need to be on top of their game, there’s nothing to fear.

Jurgen Klopp has also never managed a Liverpool team to victory 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
