Liverpool Confirmed Lineup vs Manchester United: Firmino in for Mane; Williams in defence

Sadio Mane has been dropped in favour of Roberto Firmino while Rhys Williams continues in defence as Liverpool get ready to face Manchester United.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made the solitary change to the lineup that defeated Southampton 2-0 last time out, for their upcoming Premier League contest against bitter rivals Manchester United.

The said change comes in the attacking third of the pitch, where Sadio Mane, who was on target against the Saints at the weekend, has been dropped to the bench. Replacing the Senegalese speedster in attack is Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian will have Mohamed Salah and the recently-misfiring Diogo Jota as his partners in the attacking line.

Moving into midfield, Fabinho continues to hold the fort in the centre of the park, with support from Thiago Alcantara and Georginio Wijnaldum. Youngsters Curtis Jones and Ben Woodburn are options for manager Klopp from the bench.

At the back, there are no changes made by Klopp as he has decided to put his faith in the young centre-back partnership of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams once again in the absence of Ozan Kabak. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertso are automatic picks as the full-backs for Liverpool while Alisson Becker continues to man the goal against Manchester United.

Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Phillips, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Jota, Salah, Firmino
