Liverpool will be aiming to put more misery on Manchester United when they face them at Anfield this Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently the league leaders but may find themselves second by the time they play.
Hence, the onus will be on them being the home side to take the game to the struggling United team. Jose Mourinho’s men have been mediocre at best this season, but the Portuguese boss knows how to set up his side to nullify the threats of the big teams.
Klopp is yet to beat the Red Devils in the Premier League since he arrived at Liverpool. This is probably his best chance to do so and send another statement to the blue side of Manchester.
The Reds will miss the services of Joel Matip and Joe Gomez for a month now. While Trent Alexander-Arnold is out for a couple of weeks.
Here’s how we think Klopp may line his team up come Sunday:
The Brazilian made another world-class save to win Liverpool the game midweek. He continues in goal.
RB: Nathaniel Clyne
Klopp said he is ready to play having trained for the past three to four days.
CB: Dejan Lovren
The Croat needs to step up and be injury-free for the next four weeks at least.
CB: Virgil van Dijk
The Dutchman is just a colossus at the back for the Reds. He plays every game.
LB: Andy Robertson
The Scot is the best left-back in the league and he proves that week in week out.
The Brazilian is expected to start as Liverpool revert to a 4-2-3-1 system.
CDM: Georginio Wijnaldum
The Dutchman was immense against Napoli and would be a key player to stop United from counter-attacking.
RM: Xherdan Shaqiri
Shaqiri starts league games on a regular basis and he will something different to the team.
CAM: Roberto Firmino
The Brazilian will be the man linking up the midfield to the attack.
LM: Naby Keita
The Guinean’s ball control and movement from midfield to the front line will be the key to breaking down a deep defending team.
ST: Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian seems to be hitting form over the last couple of games. United’s defence will need to be at their best or they can expect to concede goals on Sunday.
