Ibrahima Konate starts in defence as Liverpool make two changes for today’s clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old replaces Joel Matip for the Premier League encounter, while the other alteration sees Diogo Jota come in for Sadio Mane.

Fabinho is absent from the squad due to the effects of a knock sustained to his knee in Madrid in midweek. The issue is not thought to be long term.

Meanwhile, Caoimhin Kelleher is also missing due to illness, but Curtis Jones returns on the bench.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Jota, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Adrian, Mane, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Minamino, Tsimikas, Origi, Matip.
