Erik ten Hag has had a difficult start to life as Manchester United manager; his side have lost both their opening fixtures, including a 4-0 defeat to Brentford on Saturday. 

Then again, Liverpool haven't won a league game either this season, drawing with both Fulham and Crystal Palace. New signing Darwin Nunez was sent off in the latter game for head-butting Joachim Anderson, meaning he'll miss the visit to Old Trafford and two further matches. 

Erik ten Hag has, understandably, made some changes for this game, dropping Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Fred. New signing Casemiro should give the fans some optimism, but he won't be available until the weekend at the earliest.  

Liverpool, meanwhile, have brought in Firmino for the suspended Nunez and also given Joe Gomez a game. Here's how they line up:

Man Utd: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Eriksen, McTominay, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford, Elanga.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Elliott, Henderson, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Diaz.

Can Utd put things right in this always-fiery encounter, or will Klopp’s team get some momentum into their title challenge with a first win? Find out by watching the Man Utd vs Liverpool live stream.
