Sunday pits the two most successful clubs in English football history against each other, with Manchester United set to welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford.
Manchester United have been in resurgent form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – being the only unbeaten Premier League team since his appointment. Solskjaer’s team come into Sunday’s fixture after dumping Chelsea out of the FA Cup fifth round.

Manchester United have some good news as Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial could be in contention to face Liverpool as their recovery has been quicker than expected.
