Team news: confirmed Manchester United XI vs. Liverpool

Kick-off between Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford is an hour away and despite doubts over his fitness, Bruno Fernandes keeps his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side for the mouthwatering clash between Britain’s two footballing titans.

Solskjaer kept supporters guessing in his pre-match press conference but will be relieved to have his talismanic figure in midfield available.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored six goals in just eight games since he completed a sensational return to the club last month, also starts as he makes his ninth appearance against Liverpool for United.
