Jürgen Klopp named a bench too small, and necessity is the mother of invention. A shot through FSG’s arcs, on the heels of his admission that in an ideal world, where he controls the money strings, another midfielder before the transfer window closes would be great? Fabio Carvalho is 19, while Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg is 20. However, winger Bobby Clark and defensive midfielder Stefan Bajcetic are just juniors, straight out of the academy at the age of 17, although both are highly regarded, and Bajcetic enjoyed a good pre-season with the first team.
The 1958 protest march was launched. A good turnout heading towards Old Trafford… and an unmistakable message.
Jürgen Klopp speaks to Sky Sports. “[The injury-dispensing witch at the training ground] It hasn’t completely disappeared, because Naby Keita is out. But the team we can form today, I like a lot, and we have two good options to change. The rest is very exciting and young, but that’s how it is, it’s all good, we’re in good shape.”
Manchester United made four changes to the team that lost to Brentford nine days ago. Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Fred are all on the bench, with Anthony Ilanga, Raphael Varane, Terrell Malacia and Scott McTominay.
Liverpool made three changes to the team held at Anfield against Crystal Palace last week. Darwin Nunez is stopped after putting his head on Joachim Andersen, so comes Roberto Firmino. Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez replaced Fabinho and Nat Phillips.
Manchester United: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Eriksen, McTominay, Ilanga, Bruno Fernandez, Sancho, Rashford.
Subs: Maguire, Ronaldo, Martial, Fred, Heaton, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Van de Beek, Garnacho.

Casemiro at home. The United hierarchy may hope that the unveiling of their new £350,000-a-week midfield star tonight will take the edge off a bit. Good luck with that.

Departure at 8 pm. It is, in many different ways, in play.
