Liverpool host Manchester United in a massive Premier League showdown on Tuesday night as the Reds seek to claim top spot.

Jurgen Klopp’s side remain one point clear of Manchester City after their 2-2 draw with the Citizens at the Etihad.

But they have the chance to put the pressure on the defending champions by playing first this week.

Further down the table, Manchester United still have a chance to earn a place in the top four and are only three points behind Tottenham Hotspur after their 3-2 win over Norwich City.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero as he netted a hat-trick for the Red Devils, so could he be the man to spoil Liverpool’s title challenge?

Well, they will definitely have to be better than they were in the second leg at Old Trafford.

The Reds humiliated their bitter rivals and won 5-0 in October and little has changed at Old Trafford since then, with Ralf Rangnick’s men struggling to deliver consistent performances.

It’s a huge game for both clubs, and although only three places in the table separate them, there is a major difference between the position of these two giants.

Liverpool v Manchester United: team news

Although he played for Manchester City twice last week, the home side don’t have to worry about injuries.

Therefore, Klopp has some tough decisions to make with so much competition for 11 starting places.

Ibrahima Konaté has made just eight league appearances this year but, after an incredible display against City in the FA Cup, you would think he has a chance to play against the Red Devils.

Klopp must also decide whether Jordan Henderson or Curtis Jones will return to his midfield, while Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino could replace Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz or Sadio Mane in the top three.

The opposing team have a lot more issues to worry about, with Rangnick likely without Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay.

Fred is also doubtful with a hip problem which caused him to miss the win over Norwich.

It means Jesse Lingard could start over for the Red Devils if the Brazilian doesn’t recover in time.

Bruno Fernandes was involved in a car accident on Monday morning but trained normally and everyone involved avoided serious injury.

Therefore, it would be a surprise if he missed Tuesday night’s game.
