Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has not recovered in time for today’s trip to face Manchester United in the FA Cup.

Just a week after playing out a dull 0-0 draw in the Premier League, the champions and rivals United face off for a place in the FA Cup fifth round.

Liverpool's unbeaten Anfield league run came to a shock end last time out as Burnley won on Thursday, with Jurgen Klopp dropping both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino for the game.

The pair both come in at Old Trafford, with Sadio Mane dropping to the bench.

Joel Matip made his return from injury but is not ready for another game so soonupon, while James Milner comes in.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of many poor showings against Burnley and drops out - and Curtis Jones has an opportunity to shine.

Liverpool lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, R. Williams, Fabinho, Robertson, Thiago, Wijnaldum, Milner, Jones, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Kelleher, Mane, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Tsimikas, Shaqiri, Origi, Phillips, N. Williams

Injury list: Diogo Jota (knee), Virgil van Dijk (knee), Joe Gomez (knee), Naby Keita (knock), Jordan Henderson (muscular)
