Defender Dejan Lovren is expected to miss the game due to a hamstring problem, as reported by BBC Sport.

They took on a United side reinvigorated by the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager, but with Liverpool in strong form of late and Virgil van Dijk returning to the fold, they will have been confident of a result. "It happened to us with 'Bobby" and that was a catastrophe.

Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata came off in the first 43 minutes against Liverpool, leaving Solskjaer to say "he had never seen the like of this before".

'United played with a completely new midfield and three up front.

'If Liverpool can get to March 4, the day after the Everton game, and they're top of the league, they're in a great position to win the league'.

"It was a game without a lot of highlights - it was intense".

'On days when United are beatable you have to do it and we didn't do it.

It would have been the ideal occasion for Salah to score his 50th Premier League goal for the Reds and become the fastest player to reach that milestone, but he endured a poor day, arguably one of his worst in a Liverpool shirt.

Next up for Manchester United is a trip to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday night, before a home clash with Southampton on Saturday.

- Liverpool have managed to win just two of their last 18 visits to Old Trafford in all competitions (D3 L13), and only one of their last 13 (D3 L9). We started exactly how we wanted to start.
