Manchester United play host to old rivals Liverpool in their rescheduled Premier League clash on Thursday evening. The game was originally due to be played a couple of weeks ago, but was postponed after United fans gathered outside Old Trafford and the team hotel in Salford to protest against the Glazer ownership. Increased security is expected to prevent a repeat later today.
Liverpool are having a tough season, and head into this game 13 points adrift of United in the table. Jürgen Klopp’s have their work cut out to qualify for Champions League football next season, while United would guarantee a second-place finish with a win. The Reds will be without Anthony Martial, Daniel James and Harry Maguire, who join Phil Jones on the treatment table. Liverpool will be without long-term absentee Virgil van Dijk, as well as Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Ozan Kabak, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita.
