Manchester United Football Club take on Liverpool this lunchtime. It goes without saying, this is the Red Devils’ biggest game of the season so far, and one they have to win.
Ahead of that match, ESPN journalist Rob Dawson has heard a whisper that Anthony Martial will start the game, that kicks off at 12:30 BST.
Martial, 21, has tended to be utilised as a substitute for the most part, largely due to the effectiveness of bringing him on in the dying embers of matches. Now, though, it finally looks like he’s going to get the opportunity to start; and in a huge game, too.
Sounds like Anthony Martial is going to start for United today. Shows the turnaround. Wasn't even in the squad at Anfield last season.

When Manchester United signed Martial, his first game actually came against Liverpool, and he scored a brilliant solo goal which was certainly a signal of things to come.
He’s been outstanding at the start of this season and I’m so glad that he’s going to get the opportunity to play from the off. It’s no more than his performances deserve, and it signals some attacking intent from Mourinho which is definitely the way to beat this Liverpool team.
Now, it’s down to the players, 1-11, to go in and put a performance to be proud of. Let’s go and get all three points, sending out a message of intent to the rest of the Premier League in the process.
