Manchester United will lock horns with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a thrilling 3-2 win against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League, whereas Jurgen Klopp’s men recorded a similar 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Diogo Jota might get the nod over Roberto Firmino in attack, whereas Fabinho looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Alisson Becker will operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.

Joel Matip will continue to form the centre-half partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s backline.

Andrew Robertson is a guaranteed starter at the left wing-back position, whereas Trent Alexander-Arnold will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stretch their side’s attack in the opposition half.

Midfield

Fabinho might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four.

Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will slot into the central midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear cut goal scoring chances for the front men.

Thiago Alcantara remains sidelined with injuries.

“Curtis will train today completely. He should be in contention but Thiago not. He will not be in team training this week for sure. He is running which is a good sign. It is maybe before the international break, but maybe before.” – Klopp stated.

Attack

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing respectively.

Diogo Jota, who came off the bench against Atletico Madrid in midweek, will lead the line for the visitors against Manchester United this weekend. The Portugal international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Manchester United defence that has conceded six goals in their last three league matches.
