In come Nathaniel Clyne, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, replacing Jon Flanagan, James Milner and Divock Origi.

It’s a relatively straight forward team selection for Klopp, with Flanagan not registered in Europe meaning Alberto Moreno and Clyne are the full backs – Clyne having been rested against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho continue at centre-back, while Emre Can and Jordan Henderson continue as the midfield two.

With Milner suffering from a virus, the attacking trio of Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Coutinho pick themselves.

Sturridge replaces Origi up front.

Sheyi Ojo is named among the subs after his hat-trick for the under-21s on Monday. Origi and Christian Benteke are other attacking subs.

There’s three changes for the visitors, as Varela, Schneiderlin and Fellaini come in for Darmian, Carrick and Herrera.

Kick off at Anfield tonight is 8.05pm (GMT).

Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge.

Subs: Ward, Toure, Benteke, Allen, Origi, Smith, Ojo.

Man United: De Gea, Varela, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Fellaini, Memphis, Mata, Martial, Rashford.

Subs: Romero, Darmian, Riley, Carrick, Schweinsteiger, Weir, Herrera.
