Man United has lost just one of their last 15 home matches against Liverpool in all competitions (W10 D4), and are unbeaten in their last eight since a 3-0 loss in March 2014.
This fact alone makes it a daunting trip for Jürgen Klopp's deposed champions, who are still in with an outside shot of Champions League qualification.
Here's the latest injury news, match facts & figures and our predicted starting XIs ahead of kickoff at Old Trafford tonight.
😈 Man United
Skipper Harry Maguire will miss the remainder of the Premier League campaign. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer elected to make 10 changes for the visit of Leicester so will welcome back most of his big-hitters here including Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelöf. Star man Paul Pogba will continue in a modified left-sided midfield role.
🧮 Likely XI (4-2-3-1):
Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Bailly, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani
The Reds have had to endure a hefty injury list throughout the season and that issue shows no signs of abating. Long-term absentees Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joël Matip and Jordan Henderson are now joined by James Milner and Ozan Kabak who were both ruled out of the win over Southampton with muscular issues.
Guinea midfielder Naby Keïta has suffered yet another setback in his return from injury.
🧮 Likely XI (4-3-3):
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Williams, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mané
