Team News:

Liverpool have Martin Skrtel (knee) in contention to make his first appearance of the season, but fellow defender Aly Cissokho (ankle) is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines after picking up an injury in Tuesday's Capital One Cup victory against Notts County. 

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has doubts over defender Kolo Toure (groin) and midfielder Joe Allen (hamstring), who will be assessed ahead of kick-off after also taking knocks in the midweek win.

Man Utd travel to Anfield with manager David Moyes possibly naming an unchanged starting XI.

Defender Phil Jones (back) is expected to recover from the knock taken during Monday night's goalless draw with Chelsea, while Wayne Rooney could start up front.

Rafael (hamstring) remains sidelined, while Nani (groin), Jonny Evans (ankle) and Javier Hernandez (hamstring) are unlikely to be involved.

What they've said ahead of kick-off:

Brendan Rodgers: "There's an intense rivalry there. It's not just the football clubs - it's the cities that you're representing.

"It's a game that, last year, we were unfortunate not to get something from. We lost the game but we're very confident going into this game.

"It's a game which should be very close. We're at home and we'll look to take the initiative.

"If you look at our numbers since we last played Manchester United in January, that's the improvement where we've really kicked on. The big thing for us was consistency.

"From when we played them in January, we've played 18 Premier League games each - they have won 11 and we have won 10, we have drawn six games and they have drawn five, and we have both lost two games.

"So over the course of that period from January they have made two points more than us and obviously they became champions. For us, it's a case of continuing with that consistency. If we can do that, I think we can compete with anyone."

David Moyes (on Wayne Rooney)"He's looking in good condition and is mentally in good shape.

"We'll do everything we possibly can to keep that going and need him to keep performing well. At the moment, he's in good shape."
