Jurgen Klopp has decided not to make any changes to the Liverpool starting XI from their win over Tottenham as they host Manchester United at Anfield.
Liverpool will take the field at Anfield against Manchester United with the identical lineup that won 1-0 away at Tottenham last gameweek in a scruffy encounter. Despite Jurgen Klopp suggesting that a couple of first-team stars have returned to fitness, the manager has chosen against the thought of tinkering the winning formula from last Matchday.

Alisson is in goal, with the centre-back pairing of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk to provide additional cover to the Liverpool goal. The full-back duo of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson will be responsible more for the attacking side of things against Manchester United, with Gomez and van Dijk doing most of the heavy lifting in defence, along with the midfielders.
Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum start in midfield, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeping his place in the trinity for now. In attack, we have the usual culprits Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane start for Liverpool. January arrival Takumi Minamino is on the bench.
Liverpool Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Sane
