Mohamed Salah injured his ankle in Liverpool's 2-1 win over Leicester

David de Gea is fit to start for Manchester United on Super Sunday, but Mohamed Salah is not in the Liverpool matchday squad.

De Gea has made a swift recovery after suffering a groin injury on international duty with Spain, but Salah failed a late fitness test after picking up an ankle problem in Liverpool's 2-1 win over Leicester before the international break.

Divock Origi replaces Salah in the Liverpool starting line-up, while Alisson Becker returns in goal for the first time since August.

Marcus Rashford leads the line for Manchester United, with the returning Anthony Martial among the substitutes, while Fred and Scott McTominay continue in the midfield following the 1-0 loss to Newcastle before the international break.

Axel Tuanzebe was initially named in the defence, but he is replaced by Marcos Rojo having suffered an injury in the warm-up, with Phil Jones stepping up to the bench.
