Manchester United host Liverpool in an FA cup fourth-round tie at Old Trafford on Sunday, in the second meeting between these two sides in a week.
Liverpool are in the middle of an awful run of form at the moment, having won only one of their last six games in all competitions.
That win came against the Aston Villa youngsters in the previous round of the FA Cup. Villa had to field a team filled with academy players after a COVID-19 outbreak within their first team.
Man United, on the other hand, come into this game after a superb 2-1 away win against Fulham in a game where Paul Pogba scored the winner.
In the last round, Scott McTominay's early goal helped Manchester United beat Watford 1-0.
