Breaking News ! Manchester United face rivals Liverpool for the second time in a week in today's FA Cup fourth round tie. The two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Anfield in the league with Paul Pogba squandering a late chance to win it for the visitors. United then beat Fulham away from home which extended their lead over Liverpool to six points following their shock defeat against Burnley on Thursday.

Eric Bailly should continue with Harry Maguire. United host Sheffield United in midweek and can be more experimental with their XI against the Premier League's basement side. Liverpool is a game for Scott McTominay and Fred, with Paul Pogba playing off the left and Marcus Rashford back on the right.

Fred and McTominay are the obvious midfield partnership against Liverpool, but with five subs available to use Solskjaer can take a risk and play Donny Van de Beek instead of Fernandes, with the ability to bring the playmaker on at half-time if United are struggling without him. In attack Cavani should start again while it makes sense to bring Rashford back in. Martial could do with a rest after two starts this week but Pogba is in the type of form where he should play whatever the role.
