Predicted line-up as Liverpool host Manchester United at Anfield

Liverpool will look to defend their unbeaten run as they host Manchester United at Anfield in what could be a Premier League title decider.

Premier league braces for another episode of the well-documented rivalry of Manchester United and Liverpool as they lock horns in top of the table clash at Anfield on Sunday. This clash bills defending Champions Liverpool against league leaders Manchester United. Liverpool will look to close down the gap between them and leaders.

Alisson got a famous assist in the corresponding fixture last season and will start for Liverpool in goal. Trent Alexander-Arnold was poor in the last match and will look to bounce back against in-form Marcus Rashford. Andy Robertson will look to continue his fine form this season. Joel Matip who returned to training this week will return to the lineup to partner Fabinho in central defense.

Thiago Alcantara will make his awaited home debut in this match against arch-rivals. Thiago will provide the creative spark alongside Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson who will provide solidity. They will look the contain the duo of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba who have been pulling the strings for Manchester United so far this season.

Liverpool will rely on their usual fearsome front three who have been wasteful in recent times. Mohamed Salah will look to build on his goal last season against United. Roberto Firmino who has picked up form alongside Mane will look to trouble United who has looked solid in recent times. Jurgen Klopp also has the option of Xherdan Shaqiri who has five goals plus assists against the Red Devils in eight matches having lost only once to them.

The hosts will look to maintain their unbeaten run, however, it rests assured that Manchester United will put a fierce fight after regaining form mid-season.
