Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the Liverpool team that was held to a draw by Bayern Munich, for their trip to Manchester United on Sunday.
Liverpool have decided to go in with the experience of James Milner over Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back for their big game against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The academy ace had been troubled by Marcus Rashford in the past, which is likely to have forced Jurgen Klopp to prefer the senior pro.
In another change, defensive mainstay Virgil van Dijk returns to the lineup, after missing the game against Bayern Munich with a suspension. The Dutchman’s comeback means Fabinho, who started in defence last time out, moves into the middle of the park. Joel Matip and Andy Robertson retain their spots in the starting XI.

Jordan Henderson starts again, in what will be his 300th Premier League appearance and is partnered by Georginio Wijnaldum, with Naby Keita dropping out to the bench, joining fellow midfielder Adam Lallana.
The attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane start as expected, with Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi providing Klopp with options from the bench.
