Match preview

England’s two most-successful clubs are set to go head-to-head for the 211th time.

Between them, these two have won 125 major honours although, right now, they’re enduring contrasting campaigns.

One might just be in the title race, while the other are seeking to salvage their season.

The Red Devils are winless in seven visits to Anfield, dating back to 2016, but will believe they can end that barren run here.

Last Sunday, Manchester United did end their six-year trophy draught, beating Newcastle in the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley.

Casemiro’s header, followed by Marcus Rashford’s deflected shot not long after, were enough to see Erik ten Hag’s team pick up silverware.

Since then, Man United have also reached the FA Cup quarter-finals, coming from behind to oust West Ham on Wednesday.

An own goal got them back on level terms, before Alejandro Garnacho and then Fred fired home in stoppage time.

In all, a quadruple is still on, with the Red Devils kicking off in third place, albeit 11 points below Arsenal with a game in hand.

Liverpool meantime could have won the actual quadruple last season, picking up both domestic cups before missing out on the title by one point, and then suffering heartbreak in the Champions League Final.

Fast forward ten months, Jürgen Klopp’s team will not be hoisting aloft any trophies this season, and are down in sixth.

The Reds have found form in recent weeks, accumulating ten points from their last four games, edging-out Wolves in midweek, with Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah scoring.

Four of their next five fixtures are against fellow ‘big six’ clubs, taking on Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal between 1 and 9 April.

Liverpool are six points below Tottenham, with a game in hand, so they need to find form now if they’re going to get back into the Champions League.

A win in this fixture kick-started Man United’s campaign in August, so could a victory at Anfield do the same for Liverpool?

Liverpool team news

Jordan Henderson is expected to return to midfield, although it won’t be at Stefan Bajčetić's expense, as the teenager continues to impress.

Ibrahima Konaté is set to continue as Virgil van Dijk’s partner, chosen over Joël Matip or Joe Gomez.

Diogo Jota has started back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since October, and his return to fitness is a major boost.

He could continue to lead the line, flanked by Mohammed Salah and Darwin Núñez, with Cody Gakpo missing out.

It was announced on Friday that Roberto Firmino will leave at the end of the season, making this his final chance to add to his three goals in this fixture.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Konaté, Robertson; Bajčetić, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Jota, Núñez.

Manchester United team news

Between 27 December and 19 March, an 82 day period, Manchester United will have played 24 matches, meaning rotation remains key for Erik ten Hag.

Having made a few chances to his XI on Wednesday, all the big guns will be back in for this one.

Raphaël Varane, Lisandro Martínez, Casemiro, Fred and Marcus Rashford all came off the bench against West Ham, and will all start here.

Does ten Hag’s persists with Wout Weghorst leading the line, or will he go for a more fluid trio, featuring Antony and Jadon Sancho on the flanks?

Rashford will certainly start, having been on fire, scoring 20 goals since the start of the World Cup, although he’s never found the net in five appearances at Anfield.

Man United’s last win there came in 2016, Wayne Rooney the match-winner and, of the 18-man squad that day, only David de Gea and Anthony Martial (currently injured) are still at the club.

Predicted XI: (4-3-3): de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martínez, Shaw; Casemiro, Fred, Fernandes; Sancho, Rashford; Weghorst.
