Liverpool vs Manchester United preview

By | March 6, 2019

Liverpool faces Manchester Unites in a crunch clash at Old Trafford as the Anfield outfit look to move back to the top of the table. The Reds have seen their title rivals Manchester City turn on the heat in recent wins with statement victories against Arsenal and Chelsea suggesting that the momentum has shifted their way.

But as we all know Liverpool have proven to be resilient so far with the club losing one game so far in the Premier League. A victory or a draw would be considered a good result for the Reds but it would be a difficult game against a resurgent United team.

We review the starting line-up that could start against Manchester United on Sunday.

Alisson is expected to man the posts despite looking jittery in the midweek clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. The Brazillian is the undisputed number one at the club and has been one of the signings of the season.

The defence looks straight forward with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right back with the youngster completing the full 90 minutes against Bayern Munich.  Robertson is expected to be the left-back with his attacking runs likely to prove crucial in the game.

The centre back pairing should be Van Dirk who returns to the team having been suspended in the Champions League. Joel Matip has been a regular in recent weeks and should keep his place.

In the Midfield Jordan Henderson was Magnificient in the game against Bayern Munich and the Liverpool captain is a certainty to start. Fabinho has been brilliant in recent weeks and should play the holding role. Giorgio Wijnaldum should complete the midfield three as Klopp favours an energetic midfield in games like this.

The attack picks itself with the front trio of Sadio Mane who was active against Bayern on the left, Roberto Firmino in the middle and Talisman Mohammed Salah on the right of the attack.

Expected lineup- Alisson-Robertson-Van Dirk-Matip-Alexander-Arnold-Fabinho-Wijnaldum-Henderson-Salah-Mane-Firmino.
