Manchester United will be targeting their fifth straight home win in all competitions. Manager Jose Mourinho is supposedly angered by the club's failure to tie Martial down to a long-term deal. However, as the team made their way to London for the clash, no tension showed between the pair. A repeat of that on Saturday would cost Manchester United big.
Despite that, Lukaku has completed the third most minutes for United in the Premier League this season, with only David De Gea and Nemanja Matic featuring more regularly. Before Tuesday's draw, Liverpool had won four straight and are now unbeaten in their last seven.
Ander Herrera is making good progress in his recovery from a hamstring problem, but it remains to be seen whether he is in contention.
Mourinho's decision to sit Pogba or to remove him early from matches has created rumours that the player is unhappy at Old Trafford.

"He has to try and get in those positions for Manchester United".
"It is normal that people think about injuries but that can happen at any time", Klopp said.
Manchester United Tops Liverpool, Without Artistry and, Significantly, Without Pogba
"But I don't take anyone anywhere, I'm not a taxi or a plane".
The Chilean star, 29, cut a frustrated figure throughout the first half as he started out on the left and failed to impact the game. Given the additional money the club are investing in Martial, they are unlikely to be willing to sell him in the summer, and Juventus may well have to look further afield for a talented new youngster.
Love him or hate him, José Mourinho is no purist.
Manchester United's French sensation Anthony Martial has become the latest target for Serie A giants Juventus, who want to add significant pace up front amid surging rumours that Paulo Dybala is looking out of the club. It means there is always criticism to be found and, rightly or wrongly, it tends to gather around the players with the biggest price tags, as though wage packets and Instagram followers are magnets for the disdain of the football purists.
Mo Salah is rightly favourite in the FGS market, but that has meant Romelu Lukaku's price is much higher than it usually would be for a United home game and he's 11/2 to net first, which I can not ignore.
