After coming on to make his Liverpool debut in the 3-0 defeat to West Ham United, Danny Ings has been named in Brendan Rodgers’ starting lineup for Saturday’s clash with Manchester United.

With Philippe Coutinho suspended after his sending off against West Ham, Ings replaces the Brazilian in what looks a much-changed setup for the Reds.

A four-man midfield of Lucas Leiva, Emre Can, James Milner and Roberto Firmino will support the attacking duo of Ings and Christian Benteke.

Captain Jordan Henderson and midfielder Adam Lallana both miss out due to injury.

Rodgers’ back four remains unchanged, with the manager maintaining his faith in under-fire centre-back Dejan Lovren.

Nathaniel Clyne, Martin Skrtel and Joe Gomez complete Liverpool’s back line, while Simon Mignolet retains his spot in goal.

This means that Adam Bogdan, Mamadou Sakho and Alberto Moreno all keep their places on the bench, alongside Jordan Rossiter, Jordon Ibe, Divock Origi and Kolo Toure.

Rodgers will be hoping Ings can make an impact against United, with his side lacking attacking force in the first four games of the season so far.

Ings’ support could well see £32.5 million summer signing Benteke thrive.

Man United:De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Herrera, Memphis; Fellaini

Substitutes: Romero, McNair, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Valencia, Young, Martial

Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez; Lucas; Can, Milner; Firmino; Ings, Benteke

Substitutes: Bogdan, Sakho, Toure, Moreno, Rossiter, Ibe, Origi
