Jurgen Klopp has chosen to bring in James Milner at fullback instead of start Brad Smith in the place of the injured Alberto Moreno… This means Adam Lallana has retained his spot on the right-wing, and Milner for Moreno is the only change from the 2-0 victory last week. Should we need them, Jordon Ibe, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi provide offensive bench options.

Louis van Gaal has made two changes from the Anfield tie, with Jesse Lindgard coming in for Memphis Depay and Michael Carrick coming in for Morgan Schneiderlin.
United have opted for a midfield double-pivot of Marouane Fellaini and Carrick, meaning Bastian Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin start on the bench – while Herrera – who had such unkind things to say about Liverpool before the game – isn’t even on the bench.
Up top, Marcus Rashford and Lindgard flank Anthony Martial – with Juan Mata in the critical no.10 spot.
