Liverpool travel to Old Trafford in a must-win game in their quest for Champions League football next season.
The Reds managed to secure an impressive 2-0 victory over Southampton last weekend which will give them some confidence going into this upcoming clash at the Theatre of Dreams. Meanwhile, Manchester United were handed a bitter defeat against Leicester City at home that ended 2-1 in favour of Brendan Rodgers’s side.
With that being said, Jurgen Klopp will look to field his best eleven for this vital clash to earn three crucial points in their contention to finish in the top four of the Premier League table.
Alisson Becker will operate in goal for the Reds after he kept a clean sheet versus the Saints in his last league outing. Fabinho will once again be asked to fill in as a center-back alongside Nathaniel Phillips as they try to keep the opponent’s attackers at bay during the 90 minutes.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will be a guaranteed starter at right-back and might be asked to carry most of the creative workload for his team. Andrew Robertson will continue to feature on the other side as the left-back.
Klopp will give both of his full-backs the license to get forward and express themselves in the final third as the Reds cannot afford to drop any points at Old Trafford.
The Merseyside club’s midfield could be comprised of Curtis Jones, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Thiago Alcantara as the talented trio look to dominate the ball at the center of the park and feed some decent balls to their teammates up top.
Sadio Mane will once again function as the left-sided winger while Mohamed Salah looks to get his name on the scoresheet from the right. Roberto Firmino might get the responsibility to lad the charge for the Merseysiders down the middle.
