An ankle injury forces Wayne Rooney to miss Manchester United's FA Cup tip to rivals Liverpool this afternoon.

Wayne Rooney is not in the Manchester United squad for this afternoon's FA Cup tie at Liverpool because of an ankle injury.

As a result, Danny Welbeck will play as a lone striker for visiting United, while captain Patrice Evra starts the match despite his recent racism case with Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Hosts Liverpool have handed a start to Andy Carroll up front, with Jamie Carragher coming in as part of three-man defence.

Liverpool: Reina; Kelly, Agger, Skrtel, Carragher; Enrique, Henderson, Gerrard, Downing, Maxi; Carroll

Man United: De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs, Park; Welbeck
