Liverpool vs Man United live score, updates, lineups, result from Premier League match at Anfield

ANFIELD, LIVERPOOL — Two teams in vastly different states face each other when Liverpool and Manchester United renew their bitter rivalry on Sunday.

The hosts sit top of the Premier League having suffered just the one league defeat all season – and that coming in famously controversial fashion at Tottenham.

Erik Ten Hag’s side, meanwhile, begin the day in eighth, having also seen their European hopes dashed by defeat to Bayern Munich in midweek.

Of course, the form book is said to go out of the window for such fixtures, and United will know that as well as any side having lost just one of their last 22 games prior to a 7-0 drubbing at Anfield last season.

Can they produce a similar shock in reverse this time around?

Jurgen Klopp springs no major surprises with his starting XI to face Manchester United as he continues to contend with a hefty injury list. 

Big calls on Curtis Jones or Ryan Gravenberch in midfield and Cody Gakpo or Darwin Nunez up top were essentially already made by the selection for a Europa League defeat in Belgium on Thursday.

Marcus Rashford has failed to recover from illness in time to start at Anfield but could impact the game from the bench.
