Mane, Matip and Pogba benched as Man Utd host Liverpool in Gameweek 9

In the final match of Gameweek 9, Manchester United host Liverpool in a mouth-watering clash at Old Trafford.

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

Manchester United make three changes from Gameweek 8, with Marcus Rashford (£9.4m), Fred (£4.9m) and Scott McTominay (£5.4m) replacing Nemanja Matic (£4.5m), Paul Pogba (£7.6m) and Jadon Sancho (£9.0m).

Bruno Fernandes (£11.8m) also starts despite heading into the game as a doubt.

For Liverpool, Sadio Mane (£11.9m) drops to the bench with Joel Matip (£5.0m).

As a result, Diogo Jota (£7.5m) starts in attack alongside Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Roberto Firmino (£8.9m), while Ibrahima Konate (£5.1m) partners Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) in defence.

Curtis Jones (£5.0m) is a substitute having missed the last two games with a groin injury, but Fabinho (£5.4m) and Thiago (£5.3m) miss out completely.

          And to think 5 weeks ago I changed the whole team to get Lukaku and Ronaldo in. Literally would have more points if I got Josh King and Emanuel Dennis
