Liverpool XI vs. Manchester United: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news, and Premier League injury updates
Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez are expected to start for Liverpool against Manchester United tonight.
Jurgen Klopp's Reds travel to Old Trafford without £64 million summer signing Darwin Nunez, who will serve a three-match suspension for his shocking headbutt on Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen during last week's 1-1 draw at Anfield.
Being without their star new frontman posed enough of a problem for Liverpool, which was exacerbated by Firmino's absence from the game against Palace as a precautionary measure.
However, the Brazilian is now fit and should start against crisis-hit rivals Manchester United, with Gomez partnering Virgil van Dijk at centre-back in the absence of Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate.
Nat Phillips started in defence against Palace last week because Gomez was out with a knock.
In other news, Naby Keita has returned to full training at Kirkby after missing the start of the season due to illness and being an unused substitute against Palace amid rumours that he wants to leave Liverpool.
He could be drafted into Klopp's starting XI tonight, alongside Gomez and Firmino.
Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones will not play against United but are getting closer to returning, while Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calvin Ramsay, and Caoimhin Kelleher are also out.
Liverpool's predicted starting lineup (4-3-3) is as follows: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita, Elliott; Salah, Diaz, Firmino.
