Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a strong Manchester United lineup to face Liverpool - but the Premier League contest has been marred with hundreds of fans breaching Old Trafford to protest on the pitch.

Hundreds of fans got into the stadium ahead of the behind-closed-doors contest to express their anger following plans backed by the Glazer family to join a proposed European Super League, which collapsed soon after.

While the 4:30pm BST kick-off is likely to be delayed at the very least, team news was released at 3:30pm as usual.

Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba thrilled against Roma, though Cavani has been rested with Mason Greenwood - who came off the bench to score - coming in.

Marcus Rashford struggled on the right flank, but he may well lead the line with Greenwood out wide.

Elsewhere, the defence stays as-is, though Eric Bailly - who signed a new contract this week - is on the bench and pushing for a return after returning from coronavirus.

Dean Henderson has established himself as the number one goalkeeper for now at least, and David De Gea makes way here.

Scott McTominay and Fred start in midfield, with the likes of Donny van de Beek and Nemanja Matic ready to come on if needed.

Man Utd XI: Henderson, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw,McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford

Subs: de Gea, Bailly, Cavani, Mata, Alex Telles, Matic,Williams, van de Beek, Tuanzebe
