Manchester United vs Liverpool: Team news – David de Gea starts

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Carrick, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Herrera, Memphis; Fellaini.

Subs: Romero, McNair, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Valencia, Young, Martial.

David de Gea returns in goal for Manchester United in his first appearance of the season which is fantastic news.

Unfortunately, Wayne Rooney picked up a hamstring strain in training and has been left out of the team.

Morgan Schneiderlin has also been dropped to the bench in quite a surprising move so it will be a midfield three of Michael Carrick, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Ander Herrera for United.

Despite an injury to Rooney, Louis van Gaal has decided to put new signing Anthony Martial on the bench. He should come on later in the game to make his United debut.
