Manchester United have signed midfielder Casemiro from Real Madrid over the weekend but the player is ineligible for this match due to a pending medical.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have drawn their first two matches of the Premier League 2022-23. The Reds have come back from a goal down in both games to take a point. New striker Darwin Nunez is suspended from this fixture due to a red card he received against Crystal Palace in their last match. Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate and Diogo Jota are the other key starters ruled out due to injuries for this game against Manchester United.
