Liverpool will play hosts to Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday evening in what is set to be a blockbuster showdown at the top of the Premier League table. The Reds are in dire need to return to winning ways in the league, so this game could be the perfect chance for them to bounce back following a run of three games without a win in the English top-flight.
Jurgen Klopp will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to revert to this strongest XI for this upcoming clash versus the Red Devils. We can expect James Milner, Thiago Alcantara and Roberto Firmino to be named in the first-team after they were rested versus Aston Villa in the FA Cup last weekend.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester United
Alisson Becker will operate in between the sticks for the Reds after failing to keep a clean sheet away at Southampton earlier this month. Klopp could once again go with a makeshift centre-back pairing of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho as they look to keep Man United’s Anthony Martial in check throughout the 90 minutes.
Trent-Alexander Arnold will function at right-back despite his poor form of late. Andrew Robertson will look to produce another hard-working display on the other flank as the left-back. Klopp will instruct both of them to whip in some inviting crosses into the Man United penalty box so that they can create enough chances for their teammates up top.
Rhys Williams and Neco Williams will be available for selection on the bench as they provide cover for the defensive positions.
The Liverpool midfield will be comprised of Thiago Alcantara, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner as they look to dominate possession at the centre of the park and engineer some meaningful openings going forward. The experienced trio will have to dictate the tempo of the game and also offer some defensive protection for their teammates at the back.
Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will have to settle for a spot on the bench but could come on to feature in the second half if needed.
Sadio Mane will be a nailed-on starter on the left flank while Mohamed Salah hopes to weave his magic from the right-wing. Roberto Firmino was rested last weekend, so he should be fresh for this crucial encounter against Man United at Anfield.
Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi will make up the numbers on the bench.
