Liverpool bench Gerrard and Torres

Liverpool gave new signing Albert Riera his debut in Saturdays north-west derby against arch-rivals Manchester United - but Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres were not risked any closer to the initial action than the bench.

For the champions, Michael Carrick returned after an ankle problem which kept him out of the last Barclays Premier League outing at Portsmouth, and the Super Cup against Zenit St Petersburg in Monaco.

All eyes were on new signing Dimitar Berbatov, also making his debut for his new club, while United's Darren Fletcher and John O'Shea dropped to the bench.

Liverpool: Reina, Arbeloa, Skrtel, Carragher, Aurelio, Benayoun, Alonso, Mascherano, Riera, Kuyt, Keane. Subs: Cavalieri, Dossena, Hyypia, Gerrard, Torres, Babel, Ngog.

Man Utd: Van der Sar, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Rooney, Scholes, Carrick, Anderson, Tevez, Berbatov. Subs: Kuszczak, Nani, Evans, Hargreaves, O'Shea, Fletcher, Giggs.
