Manchester United defender Eric Bailly starts for the club in their crunch match against Liverpool.
Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is restored to the team's starting lineup for the crunch visit of Liverpool this afternoon.
The centre-back has been selected alongside Chris Smalling, while Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia begin as the full-backs.
In midfield, Scott McTominay starts with Nemanja Matic as Paul Pogba misses out, while Romelu Lukaku starts ahead of Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez.
For Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp keeps Loris Karius in goal, while Virgil van Dijk returns to the starting lineup and will join Dejan Lovren at centre-back.
Georginio Wijnaldum, who has been ill, is only fit enough for the bench so James Milner, Emre Can and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain start.
Up front, there is no surprise as Klopp selects the familiar front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
