Liverpool vs Manchester United
Competition: English Premier League
Date: 17 January 2016 - Time: 14:05 GMT
Venue: Anfield, Liverpool 
Liverpool team scored a last-gasp leveller to secure a 3-3 home draw to leaders Arsenal on Wednesday night. The Reds' form in Premier League has been patchy, with two wins, two draws and two defeats from their last six league games. They sit ninth in the table, three points behind Van Gaal's men.
We may see Jurgen Klopp name a very similar starting XI to the one that held Arsenal in midweek with Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Jordon Ibe upfront and midfield trio of Henderson, Can and Milner. The likes of Joe Allen and pushing for a start in midfield but they are both expected to be benched. Steven Caulker could be in line to make his first start for Liverpool as Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtell are still out injured. Philippe Coutinho, Divock Origi and Danny Ings remain sidelined, while Daniel Sturridge is still edging his way to full fitness.
On Tuesday, Manchester United were denied a third consecutive win in all competitions at the start of 2016 as they drew 3-3 at Newcastle. The Red Devils are only two points off a Champions League spot, but there is a sense of discontent around Old Trafford as they are not dominating games that they arguably should.
Bastian Schweinsteiger remains a huge doubt for the trip to Anfield, Michael Carrick is out injured and this means that Marouane Fellaini or Ander Herrera could partner Schneiderlin in midfield. Juan Mata was rested on Tuesday night, and could return to the offensive midfield trio alongside Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. The back four of Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian may remain unchanged. Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia remain sidelined.
The Red Devils have dominated the most recent meetings between the pair as they have won their last 4 matches against Liverpool in all competitions, scoring at least 2 goals in each of those games. The Red Devils sealed a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford earlier this season and they snatched a 2-1 league win at Anfield in the 2014-15 season.
Probable lineups:
Liverpool: Mignolet – Clyne, Caulker, Sakho, Moreno – Henderson, Emre Can, Milner – Ibe, Firmino, Lallana.
Manchester United: de Gea – Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Young – Carrick, Schneiderlin – Mata, Herrera, Martial – Rooney.
