Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Man United – but match still in doubt – Liverpool FC


Jurgen Klopp has named Nat Phillips in his starting lineup as Liverpool look to preserve their first four hopes at Man United, but it’s unclear if the game will play out.

Winning against United tonight would keep the Reds in the Champions League account for next season, but also seal the title for Man City.

Pep Guardiola’s side won 2-0 at Crystal Palace on Saturday, meaning the points lost for United would be enough to become champions – at the expense of Liverpool as the title holder.

Having conceded the title a long time ago, Liverpool have instead focused on finishing in the top four, and Klopp’s roster at Old Trafford is designed to push for victory.

However, protests inside and outside Old Trafford mean that a decision has yet to be made as to whether the game will be played tonight.

If that is the case, Alisson will play his 38th game of the season, behind four backs of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nat Phillips, Ozan Kabak and Andy robertson.

this allows Fabinho return to midfield, with the Brazilian joined by Thiago and James milner.

They will support Mohamed salah, Sadio mane and Roberto Firmino in attack.

Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota are among the replacements.

Neither Liverpool nor Man United have released the squads through their official websites at 3:30 p.m. BST as expected as doubts persist about the kick-off.

Man United: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Rashford
