Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool return to Premier League action with the visit of Ralf Rangnick’s Man Utd for a midweek north west derby, where a win would lift them to the top of the table
Liverpool return to Premier League action on Tuesday for their game in hand against Manchester United at Anfield, knowing that a win will lift them above Manchester City in the race for the title.
Man Utd are still chasing a top four finish and a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired victory over Norwich City on Saturday means they are just three points off fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, although they will need to be at the top of their game to beat the Reds here.
A victory for the hosts will lift them two points above Man City at the top of the league, who play on Wednesday, while three points for United will draw them level on points with Spurs in fourth.
When is Liverpool vs Man Utd?
Liverpool vs Man Utd will kick-off at 8pm on Tuesday, April 19 at Anfield.
The last meeting between these two sides came in the reverse league fixture back in October, when the Reds humiliated their hosts with a 5-0 victory at Old Trafford.
Goals from Naby Keita, Diogo Jota, and a double from Mohamed Salah had Liverpool 4-0 up by half-time, before the Egyptian completed his hattrick five minutes after the restart to hand his side the bragging rights in this north west derby.

Jurgen Klopp is once again expected to be operating with a full strength squad ahead of this fixture, following Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota overcoming minor injuries to feature in Saturday’s FA Cup win over Man City, while his side managed to come away unscathed from the game .
However, the German will be expected to rotate a few players and make changes in order to freshen things up, with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Jota, Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip all pushing for starts as the Reds look to return to the top of the table.
As for Ralf Rangnick, he may be tempted to stick with the same side that beat Norwich on Saturday in order to retain a winning formula, although the level of opposition will be far greater to deal with than the Canaries here.
Nonetheless, he could remain without five injured players, and although Raphael Varane will face a late fitness test in the hope he may be able to feature, Fred (hip), Scott McTominay (foot), Luke Shaw (calf) and Edinson Cavani ( calf) are all expected to miss out once again.
