Liverpool face arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield this evening in a blockbuster top-of-the-table clash.

As if a fixture between England’s two most successful clubs needed additional incentives, the victors will either remain top in the case of United or return to the summit of the table in the case of the Reds.

Having been slightly derailed recently both in terms of performance and results, Jurgen Klopp will be desperate for his side to recalibrate in what is the biggest clash of the 2020/21 season to date.

The German has seen his squad decimated at times by injury and will be hoping for a change in fortunes as the second half of the campaign comes around.

However, in the meantime, he must ensure that the defending Premier League champions remain within shooting distance of the title as players slowly but surely begin to return from injuries.

The build-up to this clash has perhaps been heightened more than most of late, as the club from down the East Lancashire road head to Merseyside in a far better place than in recent years.

With Joel Matip facing a race against time to make the kick-off and Klopp’s selection hampered by continued injury absentees, we’ve predicted the lineup we think the Reds manager will select, with six changes from the side which began the recent FA Cup win at Aston Villa.
