Manchester United vs Liverpool is one of the biggest Premier League fixtures going and this season’s first clash is as crucial as it has been in a long time. Which, is why two major selection decisions made by Louis van Gaal and Brendan Rodgers are even more surprising.

A win for Manchester United at Old Trafford will take them to within five points of rivals Manchester City and see them taker control of third place. It would be a sixth consecutive win and a big psychological boost for the club, so the decision to start 19-year-old James Wilson up front is a big one.

Meanwhile, Rodgers has made the decision to drop struggling goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and bring in back-up Brad Jones. The Belgium international has made some high-profile mistakes so far this season and the Liverpool’s boss’ patience appears to have run out.

Here are the teams…

De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Evans, Young, Carrick, Fellaini, Mata, Rooney, van Persie, Wilson
