Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has resisted the temptation to start Steven Gerrard and has named an unchanged side for the visit of Manchester United.

The Reds have been in stunning form in recent weeks and have a genuine chance of replacing United in the top four.

Jordan Henderson continues as captain, in Gerrard's absence, while Coutinho, Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge make up a daunting attacking trio.

Louis van Gaal has also decided to stick with the side which beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at Old Trafford last week. Angel di Maria can only secure a place on the bench while Wayne Rooney is preferred to Radamel Falcao.
