MANCHESTER UNITED welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford this weekend, looking to keep hold of fourth place in the Premier League.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be thankful that he has Ashley Young available for selection, despite picking up one too many yellow cards in recent matches.
Why is Ashley Young available to face Liverpool?
The English defender picked up a yellow card in Man United’s 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday – which meant he is due one-match suspension for receiving too many.
But as it was awarded in an FA Cup match, it does not affect his ability to feature in the Premier League.
This new rule was brought in this season, meaning yellow cards will be competition-specific.
Where a suspension is normally due after picking up five yellows in the league, it will mean they are only banned for the next match in the Premier League – even if there is an FA Cup or Carabao Cup game beforehand.
Rules on red cards and dismissals will not change, meaning players will still be banned for domestic cup fixtures even if they picked it up in the league.
When is Man Utd vs Liverpool?
This Premier League match will take place on Sunday, February 24.
It will kick off at 2.05pm.
The tie will be held at Old Trafford.
