One of the Premier League’s biggest rivalries resumes on Thursday at Old Trafford as tired Manchester United host Liverpool in a game originally postponed by fan protests (start time 3:15 p.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) .
There is still something left for Man United and Liverpool despite Tuesday’s loss confirming Manchester City’s Premier League title and reducing the former’s chances of a top four finish.
United will be runner-up in the league unless it wins one of the last three games (or there are two or fewer ties) but staying fit and shooting before the Europa League final is very important.
Liverpool are likely to reach European football one way or another but still have hope for the Champions League. Beating United would push them in front of West Ham and put pressure on Chelsea and even Leicester.

Manchester United won’t have Harry Maguire for some time, while Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones will stay out. Eric Bailly replaces Maguire while Edinson Cavani starts on the bench with Mason Greenwood.
Liverpool’s injury list is still quite long. Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, Ben Davies, Divock Origi and Caoimhin Kelleher and Joel Matip are in the middle of long-term absences. Ozan Kabak is new and so is James Milner. Sadio Mane is on the bench at the start of this clash.
Manchester United are the slight favorites at 180, while Liverpool barely deviate from this pace at 135. The draw is 255.

As much of it goes against United, whether it’s Maguire’s injury, schedule fatigue or Liverpool’s desperation. The Reds have been better than they probably should have their injury battles and it feels silly to bet against them – even at Old Trafford – when the intensity picks up. Manchester United 1-3 Liverpool.
