The Reds visit Old Trafford tonight under a cloud of protests from the United supporters against their owners, but on the pitch, the focus is on the three points.
This at least presents an opportunity to make it three in a row, then, with Alisson tasked with keeping a clean sheet in Manchester.
Amid speculation over his future, Naby Keita is not even named in the squad.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag has dropped Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Fred and Luke Shaw, with Raphael Varane, Scott McTominay, Tyrell Malacia and Anthony Elanga starting instead.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Elliott, Milner; Salah, Diaz, Firmino
Man United: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; McTominay, Eriksen; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Elanga
Substitutes: Heaton, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Van de Beek, Garnacho, Martial, Ronaldo
