Manchester United will play against Liverpool at Old Trafford in Manchester in the ninth round of the 2021-22 Premier League season on Sunday, October 24, 2021, at 11:30 AM (ET). Here, you will find the expected lineups of both teams that will appear in this Matchday 9 derby soccer game of the English Premier League.

This will be their 59th EPL meeting. No surprises here as Manchester United have been the absolute favorites in head-to-head duels, winning exactly 28 games so far; Liverpool have celebrated a victory 16 times to this day, and the remaining 14 matches have ended in a draw so far.

Their most recent game was played on May 13, 2021, when the Reds cruised past the Red Devils with a final result of 4-2 away at the Old Trafford in a 2020/2021 Premier League match. It promises to be an even more exciting clash in the new 2021/2022 Premier League season.

Manchester United probable lineup

Marcus Rashford and Fred haveboth been ruled out for this game after suffering injuries against Atalanta, while Bruno Fernandes was reportedly limping in training following the Champions League match and is also a doubt.

However, Solskjaer is confident about Rashford's fitness, and Anthony Martial and Amad Diallo may also return to bolster the hosts' offensive options, while Raphael Varane is ruled out. If Fred is ruled out, Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba might form the midfield duo, but the latter is expected to compete with Jadon Sancho for a position on the left if Rashford does not make the squad.

Manchester United possible starting XI:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.

Liverpool probable lineup 

Curtis Jones is set to return in time to play Manchester United, while Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliott are poised to miss out for the time being. Fabinho was unexpectedly chosen on the bench in midweek, but he will undoubtedly replace one of James Milner or Naby Keita in the starting XI, with Jones vying for the other engine room berth beside Jordan Henderson.

Due to an injury scare during the international break, Diogo Jota has lost his starting spot to Roberto Firmino, who has scored all ten of his Premier League goals away from home.

Liverpool possible starting XI:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
