Manchester United and Liverpool are set to go head-to-head in the ICC Final tomorrow night after both teams topped their respective pre-season groups.

The Red Devils booked their place in the final with a 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in front of a sell out crowd of 109,318, while Liverpool followed up their victory over Manchester City with a 2-0 win against Italian giants AC Milan.

United and Liverpool – the two most successful clubs in English football – will now renew their rivalry in Miami tomorrow evening. The game, which is regarded as a pre-season friendly will certainly be taking seriously, as both clubs look to get one over on each other before the start of the new campaign.

Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers will battle each other for the first time in the US tomorrow, with both managers hoping their fine pre-season form continues.

Team news

Ahead of the game, Liverpool have been dealt an injury blow as striker Daniel Sturridge has been sent home following a slight hamstring injury. Liverpool, though, may welcome captain Steven Gerrard back into the starting line-up, whilst Philippe Coutinho could also feature against the Red Devils.

Manchester United, meanwhile, could make changes themselves, with the likes of Shinji Kagawa and Javier Hernandez potentially coming in for Juan Mata and Danny Welbeck. Tom Cleverley may also get the nod alongside Ander Herrera in the middle of the park.

United's back-line is expected to be similar to the one that played against Real Madrid, with Van Gaal's side set to set up in a 3-5-2 formation once again.

Predicted teams

Manchester United: De Gea; M Keane, Jones, Evans, Valencia, Herrera, Cleverley, Young, Kagawa, Rooney, Hernandez.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson , Toure, Coates, Robinson, Gerrard, Henderson, Allen, Lambert, Coutinho, Sterling.

Premier League season

Both teams will be hoping to make an early statement as they embark upon another Premier League campaign. Manchester United will be desperate to bounce back next term after last season's dissapointing seventh placed finish, meanwhile Liverpool will be looking to go one better after securing the runners-up spot last time out.

United play host to Swansea City on the opening weekend of the season, whilst Liverpool take on Southampton at Anfield, with both teams looking to secure victories in their opening games.
