Manchester United winger Nani has recovered from a long-term hamstring injury and is available.

Defender Jonny Evans and striker Javier Hernández are making encouraging progress in their respective rehabilitation programmes and could also feature.

Manager David Moyes must decide whether to stick with Robin van Persie or to recall Danny Welbeck, who scored a fine goal against West Brom last weekend.

Meanwhile, Midfielder Lucas Leiva and defender Mamadou Sakho both return to Liverpool’s squad.

The pair, sidelined for some time with knee and hamstring injuries respectively, both came through an under-21s game unscathed on Friday and have rejoined the first team.

Forward Raheem Sterling could push for a recall after scoring almost immediately having come off the bench in their last victory at Southampton on March 1.

A game that could make or break the two managers involved.

Defeat for David Moyes will do little to shore up the evaporating support in the Old Trafford seats, yet a victory could finally banish the grey clouds of his first season in charge.

Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, is on the precipice of greatness at Liverpool and will take a stride towards achieving that with a win against United that would mortally wound the hosts and increase the prospects of an Anfield title party.

Stat of the game: Liverpool have scored 31 goals on the road, the most in the Premier League.

Manchester United (Possible, 4-2-3-1): De Gea; Rafael, Jones, Vidic, Evra; Carrick, Fellaini; Mata, Rooney, Welbeck; Van Persie.

Liverpool (Possible, 4-3-3): Mignolet; Flanagan, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson; Henderson, Gerrard, Coutinho; Sturridge, Suárez, Sterling.
