Jose Mourinho named his starting XI for the game against Liverpool on Saturday in the lunchtime kick-off in the Premier League, and fans are delighted to see Eric Bailly back at the heart of defence.

It’s his first start in the Premier League in 2018 after injury problems.

It’s a huge clash at Old Trafford, with both sides in with a great shot at finishing second, behind runaway league leaders Man City.

The team news was announced on the official Man United Twitter page ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off.

Man United are two points ahead of Liverpool before the start of the game, with Man City way off in the distance, a further 16 points ahead.

Incredibly, Liverpool go in as favourites with some bookies at Old Trafford, and Mourinho would probably take a draw today, although he wouldn’t admit that beforehand.

Romelu Lukaku is looking for his 100th league goal and would love to bat off criticism that he’s not a big-game player with a goal at Old Trafford today.

And fans are delighted with Bailly at the back and hope he can keep out Liverpool’s fearsome attackers.

Here are the best reactions from Man United fans:
