Man Utd predicts XI against Liverpool


Manchester United will aim to extend Manchester City’s wait for the Premier League title after taking over Liverpool at Old Trafford today

Pep Guardiola’s men will be crowned champions if the Red Devils fall to win against their big rivals, so there is even more motivation for them to claim victory against the Reds.

Given that, then, how many changes could United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make from AS Roma’s 6-2 strokes in the action league in the middle of the week?

We expect only two changes from the Norwegian for the clash – none of them is a big surprise.

Dean Henderson should be called to take his place between the sticks after David De Gea kicks off Thursday night. The former Sheffield United mercenary has started each of the last seven Premier League games for the Red Devils.

Elsewhere, he must be protected by the unchanged four of Luca Shaw, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Aaron One-Bissaka.

There should also be no changes from Fred and Scott McTominay’s defensive midfield pair.

After his two goals against Roma, Bruno Fernandez is again confident of taking his place in a slightly more advanced position.

In the meantime, there should be a slight correction for the attack. Edinson Cavani will certainly start after two goals and three assists in the middle of the week and will again be supported by Marcus Rashford.

Mason Greenwood should enter the starting lineup, albeit at the expense of the estimated 54 million pounds Paul Pogba.

Will Man United beat Liverpool today?

Absolutely!
