Liverpool vs Manchester United LIVE!

Liverpool opened up a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League after inflicting a second humiliation of the season on Manchester United with a 4-0 victory.

Mohamed Salah’s first goals from open play since February - making it nine in his last six matches against United - were supplemented by strikes from Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane as Jurgen Klopp’s side cruised to victory at Anfield.

It puts the pressure on Manchester City, who can move back to the top when they host Brighton on Wednesday.

This was the first time since October 2009 Liverpool had won three successive league matches against United, beaten 5-0 at Old Trafford earlier this season, and Ralf Rangnick’s side look to have had their top-four hopes ended.

United had one shot on target and have now conceded more Premier League goals this season than 18th-placed Burnley. Liverpool, meanwhile, are still gunning for a quadruple in the final weeks of the season.

Rangnick: ‘Liverpool have better players than we have’

09:53 , Malik Ouzia

The United interim boss has also defended his players over accusations they have already clocked off for the season.

“I don’t think they [the players] have mentally checked out,” he said. “They have better players than we have. There will be a rebuild, for sure, but right now that doesn’t help us. They just showed what kind of calibre they are right now and we were not up for it, just not good enough to get points against Liverpool.

“They’re one of the best, if not the best, team in the world right now and we’re far away from that.

“We’re just not physical enough, athletic enough against a team like this. If you want to have a chance, you have to cause them problems and we couldn’t do that. We have to be critical with ourselves.”

Rangnick: Liverpool are ‘six years ahead of us'

08:45 , Malik Ouzia

“We have to accept they are six years ahead of us now. When Jürgen Klopp came [in 2015] they changed at the club and lifted not just the team but the club and city to a new level.

“That is what needs to happen with us in the next transfer windows.”

Klopp: I’m not here to humiliate opponents

08:17 , Malik Ouzia

Here’s more from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who insists Liverpool’s current dominance of this rivalry will not last forever...

“It was a top-class performance,” the German said.

“It was the perfect night for us and we don’t take these things for granted. I am not here to humiliate opponents. We did what we had to do. Nine-nil [over two games] — I am not interested in that. That is something for the supporters if they want to celebrate. I know it will not last for ever, they [United] will strike back.”

Rangnick: We were onlookers in first-half

07:43 , Malik Ouzia

More reaction from the Manchester United boss...

“What I tell them in the locker room stays there, obviously,” Rangnick said, before offering a flavor of the damning assessment. “We were just not up to it in the first half. We didn’t win a single second ball. In most of the first ball situations we were just spectators. We were onlookers.“If you play like that against a team like Liverpool, then it’s difficult.”

Klopp: Applause for Ronaldo was ‘moment of the game'

07:21 , Malik Ouzia

“[I’m] pretty sure if you ask anybody about it, my moment of the game, even when it was very important and a great result, was the seventh minute when our people showed pure class,” the Liverpool boss said.

“The whole stadium together showed pure class, in a moment where we obviously, everybody knew since yesterday, since I heard first time about it, so many things they are much more important in life than football.

“Obviously, we really feel for Cristiano and his family.”

Match report

Tuesday 19 April 2022 23:19 , Matt Verri

Liverpool moved top of the Premier League as they cruised to a 4-0 win over a dreadful Manchester United at Anfield.

Luis Diaz put the home side ahead with less than five minutes on the clock and they never looked back, with Ralf Rangnick’s side struggling before the break to get a touch, let alone fashion a chance.

Mohamed Salah went into the match without a goal from open-play since February but he brought an end to that run as Liverpool took complete control. Sadio Mane got himself on the scoresheet after the break to put the result beyond any doubt, before Salah got his second of the night late on.

The win moves them two points clear of Manchester City, though Pep Guardiola’s side are in action on Wednesday night at home to Brighton. Liverpool’s attention now turns to another of their big rivals, with Everton making the short trip across Stanley Park on Sunday.

Robertson on another big win...

Tuesday 19 April 2022 23:02 , Matt Verri

“When he doesn’t score in one game it’s classed as a drought. I think the goals were important for him. When goalscorers don’t score they’re disappointed and that will do him a world of good.

“Hopefully it gives him a good run of form for the rest of the season.

“If you can’t have fun at this period of the season with what we’re doing then you’re in the wrong profession. We’re fighting for all trophies, trying to play cup finals every single week it feels like.

“We all play with a small on our face but we’re determined inside. You have to enjoy games like tonight - if none of us are smiling after this we have a bigger problem.”

One happy left-back...

Keane: Lingard and Rashford aren’t good enough

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:36 , Matt Verri

Fernandes apologises to fans

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:30 , Matt Verri

“The fans don’t deserve us to play this way. They deserve more from us. The way they stay and applaud us, they deserve more. We have to raise our level higher. It is what it is.

“I think everyone runs. I think there is effort from everyone. I don’t think someone does not give 100%. We have to do it for ourselves, the clubs, the fans and everyone.

“Liverpool is ready for the title. We are not. I don’t need to be here saying about the difference of the level. We have to look at ourselves, from top to bottom and understand what is going wrong.”

Thiago gives his post-match reaction

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:21 , Matt Verri

“When we have these attackers in front of us and you see not only how they score but in defensive situations they want to get involved. It makes us perform.

“I can’t be the one to judge my performance. It is one of the strongest performances at Anfield. We are not worried about where the goals come from. We are happy with all the strikers and how we play.”

Salah: I wasn’t worried about scoring

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:15 , Matt Verri

“I have scored many goals for this club, but the most important thing is the team winning. I was never worried about that.”

He’s been on a slightly difficult run in front of goal, but two goals for Salah tonight have him back on track. Not that he sounded particularly bothered about what’s been happening recently...

Says it all....

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:08 , Matt Verri

Neville not impressed...

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:04 , Matt Verri

Gary Neville believes this Man United team are the worst he’s ever seen at the club, after yet another woeful display.

“I’ve been watching Man United for 42 years and this is as bad as it gets honestly,” Neville said.

“Watched them through the 80s, I’ve never seen a group have a lack of appetite to play during my time watching the club.”

Tuesday 19 April 2022 22:00 , Matt Verri

That could well be that for United’s top-four hopes.

They’re three points behind Tottenham having played a game more, and level on points with Arsenal who have two games in hand over them.

Sealed in style...

FT: Liverpool 4-0 Manchester United

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:56 , Matt Verri

Another glorious night for Liverpool over their rivals, and Jurgen Klopp’s side go top of the Premier League.

Manchester City can go back above them tomorrow night, but for now Liverpool fans can enjoy the table.

Salah at the double, Mane and Diaz also on the scoresheet... absolutely dominant display.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:52 , Matt Verri

90+1 mins: Three minutes added on.

Hannibal goes in late again, referee warns him for the final time. Could easily have been sent off there.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:50 , Matt Verri

89 mins: Fernandes kicks out at Alexander-Arnold, knee-high and he earns himself a yellow card too.

For the best that there’s very little added time for United, nothing good is going to come of these last few minutes.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:49 , Matt Verri

88 mins: Henderson absolutely clattered - frustrations boiling over among the United players.

Home side cheering every pass, Hannibal decides to leave something on the Liverpool captain.

GOAL! Liverpool 4-0 Manchester United | Mohamed Salah 85'

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:46 , Matt Verri

SALAH AT THE DOUBLE!

He’s back in the goals, and in some style. Hannibal, just on for United, caught on the ball, and that’s all it takes.

Salah makes the run inside, Wan-Bissaka can’t catch him and the shot loops up over De Gea and into the back of the net.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:43 , Matt Verri

82 mins: United are still at times trying to press, but Liverpool are so comfortable passing it around them.

Plenty of away fans now leaving Anfield, they’ve seen enough of this match.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:41 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Thiago gets a brilliant ovation as he comes off, and quite rightly too. He’s been unbelievable, surely the best match he’s had in a Liverpool shirt.

Keita comes on to replace him.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:37 , Matt Verri

76 mins: Sancho found with a nice pass out to the left.

Rashford charging forward in the middle, wants the ball played in. It is played in, but it’s played in straight to Alisson.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:34 , Matt Verri

73 mins: Liverpool’s free-flowing football from the first-half is back.

Sublime interplay from Mane and Salah, but the Egyptian can’t quite find room for the shot in the box.

Rashford then runs at Alexander-Arnold, goes down appealing for a free-kick. Definitely not.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:31 , Matt Verri

70 mins: That will be Diaz’s last contribution tonight.

He’s brought off by Klopp, and Jota will get the final 20 minutes.

GOAL! Liverpool 3-0 Manchester United | Sadio Mane 68'

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:29 , Matt Verri

AND LIVERPOOL CLICK BACK INTO GEAR!

That’s surely that. Robertson bursts out of defence to intercept and Liverpool are away on the counter.

Plays it to Diaz, who cuts it back perfectly for Mane and his finish is a lovely one into the far corner.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:27 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Diaz shoved off the ball by Rashford, Liverpool fans want a foul. Not going to get it.

United give it straight back though, so makes no difference. Home fans trying to get their side going again, there’s definitely been a lull.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:25 , Matt Verri

64 mins: Sancho is single-handedly giving United a bit of hope.

Fabinho slips and the winger is away. Plays it inside to Lingard, who finds Elanga... shot blocked.

Sancho with a brilliant run now, past two challenges and slides in Rashford. His effort is saved by Alisson, who also denied Elanga from the rebound! Offside flag up... but replays show he was onside. Would have counted.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:23 , Matt Verri

62 mins: Henderson down off the ball, looks like he had a coming together with Maguire.

Replays show there wasn’t much in it, United man caught him but didn’t look particularly deliberate. Henderson back up and he’ll be fine to continue.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:20 , Matt Verri

59 mins: Fernandes floats it straight to Alisson... we’ll assume that wasn’t the plan.

Lingard looks to set Elanga away, too much on the pass though. Certainly United’s bell spell of the match, but that’s not saying much.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:18 , Matt Verri

58 mins: United are at last starting to show something.

Comes out to the left and Sancho can have a run at Alexander-Arnold, but the right-back is up to the task.

Thiago then lunges in on Elanga and that’s a free-kick.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:16 , Matt Verri

55 mins: United have a shot on target!

If they can find a goal, they’re right back in this. Big if though. Sancho cuts inside and it’s a tame effort straight at Alisson.

Play stopped as Mane is down holding his head, Fabinho then goes in on Fernandes after the whistle. United man unimpressed.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:13 , Matt Verri

52 mins: Long ball forward from United, Rashford is never going to get the better of Van Dijk in the air.

He nods it down for Thiago and Liverpool are up and running again. United might be seeing even less of the ball now than they did before the break.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:10 , Matt Verri

49 mins: Away fans trying to summon up something from their sides, but Liverpool continue to knock it around with no pressure on them at all.

Henderson looks to set Salah away, the Egyptian was making a run though and the ball hits him on the back.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:08 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Sloppy pass from Van Dijk, Elanga pounces on it and United have a corner early in the half.

Thiago of all people is there to head it away and Liverpool can break. Robertson wants a free-kick, doesn’t get it though. And then he gives away one.

Back underway!

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:06 , Matt Verri

Up and running again at Anfield.

United have made the switch to a back four. Jones off, Sancho on at the break.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 21:04 , Matt Verri

Restart delayed by technical issues, looks like something is wrong with the referee’s microphone.

Hopefully underway soon!

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:58 , Matt Verri

No shots, 25% possession, two goals down... that was a dreadful 45 minutes for United.

Few would have lived with Liverpool, so good was their football. But they’ve faced very generous opponents.

Watch: Salah back in the goals

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:55 , Matt Verri

Watch: Diaz gets home side off to perfect start

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:50 , Matt Verri

HT: Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:46 , Matt Verri

Wow. That was about as one-sided a first-half as you’ll ever see.

Liverpool absolutely brilliant, goals coming from Diaz and Salah. As good as the home side have been, United have been dreadful to put it mildly.

Long, long, long 45 minutes coming up for them.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:44 , Matt Verri

44 mins: Mane against three United defenders, who just watch the ball drop and Henderson can claim.

Diaz then goes for goal from distance, comfortable enough save for De Gea.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:42 , Matt Verri

42 mins: Salah with so much space on the right, he drives forward again. Eventually Fernandes slides in and it’s another corner.

Alexander-Arnold over to take it. Decent ball in, but Jones is there to head clear.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:40 , Matt Verri

40 mins: United have given up trying to win the ball back.

Two minutes of the home side passing it around defence and midfield under no pressure at all. Fabinho tries to then slide Diaz through, not quite enough on the pass.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:38 , Matt Verri

38 mins: That’s the gameplan.

Long ball again from United, Rashford is in behind but his touch lets him down. Runs through to Alisson. Don’t think the flag would have gone up either.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:37 , Matt Verri

37 mins: United kick it straight out of play, Henderson celebrates it like a goal. He’s delighted with the pressure from Salah.

Heavy touch from Alexander-Arnold though, visitors can counter. Long ball over the top, Lingard watches it sail over his head and behind for a goal kick.

OFFSIDE!

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:34 , Matt Verri

34 mins: A United attack! Out of nothing they have a corner of their own. This is surely their best chance of causing Liverpool any problems.

Fernandes to take, looping ball in... Maguire nods it down but it’s then cleared away. Alisson with an outrageous pass to set Diaz away on the counter. United clear - briefly.

Liverpool play it back across, Fabinho drags the ball into the box, Diaz turns it in at the back post. Offside though.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:32 , Matt Verri

32 mins: Losing count of how many corners Liverpool have had. Another great delivery from Alexander-Arnold, Maguire does well to head it over his own bar.

Another one coming up! De Gea off his line this time and punches it away. Comes back in, Van Dijk heads it on... Mane offside. Good save from De Gea to deny him anyway.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:31 , Matt Verri

30 mins: Another stunning pass out wide to Salah from Thiago and Liverpool are away.

The Egyptian drives into the box, cuts inside and goes for goal. This time it’s blocked.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:29 , Matt Verri

29 mins: This has been ridiculously good from Liverpool, so much confidence. Diaz and Thiago trying everything... and everything is coming off.

Thiago is being given the freedom of Anfield to run the show and he’s doing just that.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:27 , Matt Verri

26 mins: Atmosphere at Anfield continues to go up a level - they’re going to enjoy every second of this.

Rashford, Elanga, Fernandes... they haven’t had a touch. Matic takes his time on the ball, swarmed by three Red shirts. Does well to keep it but Wan-Bissaka is then forced out of play.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:24 , Matt Verri

24 mins: Neville has called the United players “a waste of space” after their display so far.

Visitors are set up to frustrate Liverpool... that hasn’t happened. Now what?! They look absolutely ragged.

GOAL! Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United | Mo Salah 22'

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:22 , Matt Verri

HE’S BACK IN THE GOALS!

That is a stunning team goal from Liverpool. Matip, Diaz, Matip, Mane, Salah... goal.

Sensational pass from Mane to play his teammate in and it’s an emphatic finish. Hosts double their advantage.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:19 , Matt Verri

19 mins: Loose pass from Diaz - even worse pass from Matic though straight out of play for a corner. Visitors are rattled, to say the least.

Headed out to the edge of the box, Henderson meets it on the volley. Catches it sweetly but doesn’t quite get the dip.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:18 , Matt Verri

18 mins: Frantic from the visitors at the back, they’re panicking. Three attempts to clear the ball, three unsuccessful attempts. Swinging away at thin air and it’s another Liverpool corner.... De Gea screaming at his defence.

Into the near post, Fernandes is there to head it away.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:16 , Matt Verri

16 mins: This system from United really isn’t working. Henderson and Alexander-Arnold on the right have so much space.

Mane finds room for the shot outside the box, deflected behind for a corner. Robertson swings it in deep, comes all the way to the back post where Fabinho can volley it at goal. Well blocked.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:14 , Matt Verri

14 mins: Fernandes has dropped deeper, alongside Matic now. Lingard playing further forward.

Dalot plays the ball over the top for Lingard who had made the run, Alisson off his line to claim though. Lingard would surely have been offside anyway.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:12 , Matt Verri

12 mins: Liverpool win the corner, they’re completely on top.

Comes back out the edge of the box, put back in and Diaz loops a header over the bar. He’s already justified his selection over Jota and Firmino.

Touching moment at Anfield

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:11 , Matt Verri

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:10 , Matt Verri

10 mins: As though it hadn’t been a miserable enough start for United, they’re forced into an early sub.

Pogba limps off, Lingard on to replace him. Rangnick’s plans torn up very early on.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:08 , Matt Verri

7 mins: Into the seventh minute we go and fans all around Anfield unite in applause for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Terrible news about the death of his baby son. You’ll Never Walk Alone rings out from the home fans.

GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Manchester United | Luis Diaz 5'

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:06 , Matt Verri

LIVERPOOL TAKE AN EARLY LEAD!

How easy was that?! Ball played in to Mane, he has time to turn and play the ball through and the United defence has disappeared. Salah and Alexander-Arnold running onto it, the full-back leaves it for Salah and he squares it for Diaz.

Simple finish, simple goal.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:04 , Matt Verri

4 mins: Fernandes puts the pressure on Alisson, so the Brazilian goalkeeper whips out the Cruyff turn. Obviously.

Pulls it off too. United’s midfield doing a decent job of sitting in front of the defence and intercepting the passes forward so far. Fernandes then plays it over the top for Dalot but it runs out of play.

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:02 , Matt Verri

2 mins: More of a 5-4-1 formation from United - Rashford up front, Fernandes and Elanga either side of Matic and Pogba.

No such uncertainty around Liverpool’s shape. As expected, United happy enough to let the hosts have it at the back.

KICK-OFF!

Tuesday 19 April 2022 20:00 , Matt Verri

We are underway at Anfield... let’s hope for a thriller!

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:56 , Matt Verri

Players are out onto the pitch at Anfield!

Incredible atmosphere as you’d expect. Kick-off coming up in just a few minutes now.

Klopp: We have to win every match

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:48 , Matt Verri

Jurgen Klopp knows nothing but perfection will do for Liverpool in the final few weeks of the season.

“Nothing has changed since January,” Klopp said pre-match.

“We have to win every game - it’s crazy but the good news is we don’t need to win them all at once!

“I want an incredible atmosphere on and off the pitch. We have to find solutions.”

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:39 , Matt Verri

Just 20 minutes to go until kick-off at Anfield!

For Liverpool, a draw or a win tonight would take them top of the Premier League, at least until Man City face Brighton tomorrow.

Plenty for United to play for too - victory would see them move level on points with Tottenham in fourth.

Maguire hits back at criticism of form

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:32 , Matt Verri

Harry Maguire has defended his performances over the course of this season, insisting he has not been as bad as some criticism would suggest.

“This season I’ve had some bad games,” Maguire said.

“But I wouldn’t be playing every game for Manchester United in the starting 11 if I’d been playing bad every game or not playing well enough.

“There’s a reason why both managers have put me in the starting eleven every game, for what I bring to the team.

“I do also understand that I’m the captain of this club, I cost a lot of money and when things aren’t going well and we’re conceding too many goals, I’m going to get criticised.”

Fabinho: We want to play our best football

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:22 , Matt Verri

Every game is huge for Liverpool at the moment. FA Cup final to come, Champions League semi-final on the horizon, and they’re right in the thick of the Premier League title race.

Fabinho starts again tonight and he’s confident he and his teammates can produce their best form.

“This is the biggest game of English football,” Fabinho told Sky Sports.

“We just have big games and important games. The City game has gone, we have to be ready for tonight. It will be a big game, a tough game and hopefully we can get the three points.

“I just want to play my best game and help the team - we play at home and we want to play our best football tonight.”

Rangnick explains selection

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:16 , Matt Verri

Ralf Rangnick has been giving his pre-match thoughts ahead at Anfield, giving some insight into his team selection tonight:

On Jones: “He should be an important part of our backline. He played well in that position against Wolverhampton. I had to decide between him and Eric Bailly and that’s why I went for him.”

On McTominay: “He will only come on in case of emergency because he hasn’t trained with us. He didn’t train yesterday bit he told me he would be ready for 10-15 minutes at the end if necessary.”

On Ronaldo: “It once again showed there are more important things in life than football. The whole team, the whole club is with him. For me it was clear he had to be where is he now with his family.”

Tuesday 19 April 2022 19:09 , Matt Verri

For Liverpool, Diaz keeps his place in the side as Jota once again has to settle for a place on the bench. Henderson and Matip both come in as Keita and Konate drop out of the starting lineup.

Looks like a back five for United - a rare start for Jones in that. Matic, Pogba and Fernandes seemingly in a midfield three, while Rashford and Elanga will look to exploit Liverpool’s high-line.

Liverpool with plenty of options all over the pitch, should Klopp decide to freshen things up. Less flexibility for Rangnick.

Room for improvement for United...

Tuesday 19 April 2022 18:38 , Matt Verri

A 5-0 defeat to big rivals, man sent off... safe to say that the match at Old Trafford earlier this season could not really have gone worse for United.

Liverpool were 4-0 up at half-time that day, before Mo Salah completed his hat-trick after the break. Not a good day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the hosts.

Klopp confident Salah will get back in goals

Tuesday 19 April 2022 18:27 , Matt Verri

Jurgen Klopp has backed Mohamed Salah to return to scoring ways ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United.

The Egyptian forward has netted only one goal in his last ten games in all competitions, although he remains comfortably the Premier League’s top scorer ahead of teammates Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane.

“It’s a completely normal spell he is going through,” Klopp said.

“We’ve spoken about the physical demands. I liked the game against [Manchester] City a lot, it was a really good football game, and it’s only a question of time before he scores again.

“He’s been close enough a couple of times and the moment will definitely come. I am really happy with the performance he showed a few days ago.”

Liverpool and Manchester United fans will come together in support of Cristiano Ronaldo tonight, while both sets of players will wear black armbands at Anfield following the tragic death of the Portuguese star’s baby son.

Ronaldo and girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez made the heartbreaking announcement via the footballer’s social media channels on Monday evening that their newborn twin boy had passed away.

Despite Ronaldo’s absence tonight, both sets of fans are set to put rivalries aside to show their support for the 37-year-old and his grieving family following the tragic news.

Liverpool supporters on social media first spread word of plans to hold a round of applause in the seventh minute of Tuesday’s high-profile fixture that could have huge ramifications for the title race and battle for a top-four finish, with the number representing the one famously worn by Ronaldo for the majority of his illustrious playing career.

Prediction

Derbies can produce all manner of results but a Liverpool team backed by a vociferous, and confident, Anfield is a test that United simply do not have the defence to overcome.

With the hosts still fighting on all fronts, any win will do so there may be no repeat of the comprehensive victory earlier in the season.

A 2-1 Liverpool win.

Cristiano Ronaldo will miss the match after announcing the tragic death of his baby son on Monday evening.

In a statement released on Tuesday, United said: “Family is more important than everything and Ronaldo is supporting his loved ones at this immensely difficult time. As such, we can confirm that he will not feature in the match against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday evening and we underline the family’s request for privacy.

“Cristiano, we are all thinking of you and sending strength to the family.”

Scott McTominay (foot), Edinson Cavani (calf), Luke Shaw (leg) and Fred (hip) are definitely out while Raphael Varane (muscle) is hoping to return at some stage this week.

Diogo Jota could return for Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp contends with a continued fixture pile-up after the Wembley win over City.

The likes of Joel Matip, Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson could also be in contention to start. It’s largely a fully fit-squad, meaning the Reds’ boss is in an extremely strong position as he ponders his team selection.

“There were some players not in the squad at the weekend and will not be in the squad for tomorrow, even though they are in really good shape,” Klopp said.
