The previous fixture between United and Liverpool was called off after fan protests against the Glazers.


Supporters have also been protesting tonight outside Old Trafford amid a heavy police presence.

United have already qualified for the Champions League, and a victory tonight would seriously damage Liverpool’s prospects of finishing in the top four.

This latest line-up features several changes from the rotated side which faced Leicester on Tuesday night, with a packed fixture schedule brought about by the postponement of the first game.
