Good afternoon all welcome to Anfield

Welcome to SunSports’s live blog as Liverpool host Manchester United in a massive Premier League derby clash.

The Red Devils are still on for the quadruple this season, with the Carabao Cup already secured.

The Merseyside club are currently 6 points off a Champions League spot but do have two games in hand on Spurs in fourth. 

The Reds go into the game with three wins in four, with Mohammed Salah getting back on the score sheet in their most recent win against Wolves.

United haven’t tasted defeat since their 3-2 loss at the Emirates back in January.

Since then, they have been in unbelievable form in the league and in cup competitions, with some fans hopeful of a quadruple this season.

In the return fixture, Man United beat Jurgen Klopp’s side 2-1 with goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

Mohammed Salah pulled one back late on, but Eric Ten Hag’s side held on to a precious three points against their bitter rivals.

Thiago, Luiz Diaz and Calvin Ramsey will all miss the all-important game at Anfield, but Klopp will be happy to have Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk back fit in recent weeks.

Joe Gomez and Naby Keita both missed the midweek win over Wolves meaning today’s game could come soon for the pair.

Eric ten Hag will still be without midfield duo Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek as they are both sidelined with long-term injuries.

There are doubts over the fitness of Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho, who missed the FA Cup 5th round triumph over West Ham in midweek.

Sancho missed the game due to illness, while Luke Shaw picked up a minor injury.

Luke Shaw would be a massive miss for the Red Devils, especially with Mo Salah back in goalscoring form.

The former Southampton man has been everpresent in the United backline this season, player left-back and also filling in a left-centre back when Lisandro Martínez.
