Liverpool vs Manchester United confirmed lineups | Premier League

Liverpool face off against Manchester United tonight and here are the confirmed lineups for both sides.

Jurgen Klopp's side are going into this game as massive favourites. Liverpool currently sit 2nd in the Premier League table, whilst Manchester United are 5th, 19 points behind the Reds.

Manchester United clung on to three points in their previous outing against 20th placed Norwich, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick.

Meanwhile, Liverpool's last game was a very impressive 3-2 win over Manchester City at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final.

Injury wise, Klopp's side have almost every single player fit and raring to go. On the other hand, Ralf Rangnick's side have been hit by a mass amount of absentees ahead of the M62 derby tonight.

Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Fred and Edinson Cavani all miss out on the trip to Anfield due to injuries.

Cristiano Ronaldo will also be absent from today's game after the devastating news that he lost his newborn son yesterday.

Anfield, led by supporters, will be holding a minute of applause in the seventh minute to show support to Ronaldo and his family during this difficult time.

The previous fixture between the two sides was extremely one-sided. Liverpool turned up to Old Trafford and won 5-0 with relative ease.

Liverpool fans will be hoping for a similar result tonight with Klopp's side being in a battle for the Premier League title race with Manchester City.

With all that in mind, here are the confirmed lineups for the Liverpool vs Manchester United game.
