Manchester United continue their packed run of fixtures in the Premier League this evening when they host rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The postponement of this match less than two weeks ago due to fan protests has left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with four games in eight days and the Norwegian manager has been forced to rotate his starting line-up in order to deal with the schedule.

United made 10 changes to their team for the visit of Leicester on Tuesday with the match taking place a little over 48 hours after they had beaten Aston Villa on Sunday.

Leicester’s victory has increased the pressure on Liverpool to take all three points at Old Trafford, as Jurgen Klopp’s side must realistically win all of their remaining fixtures to have a chance of finishing in the Premier League’s top four and securing Champions League qualification for next season.
