Manchester United will face one of their biggest games of the season this Saturday as they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils head into the game off the back of a dramatic 3-2 win away at Crystal Palace. Their visitors will be looking to continue their exceptional run of form following another comfortable win last weekend against Newcastle.
United are currently sat on 62 points in 2nd place, two ahead of Liverpool who will be looking to leapfrog their rivals with a win at Old Trafford this weekend.
Jose Mourinho will be well aware of the significance of this game and will know that his game plan must be spot on if he is to get the better of his counterpart Jurgen Klopp.
United can move five points clear of Liverpool in 2nd place with a win, which is sure to be on the mind of Mourinho ahead of the clash.
Here’s how we think the Red Devils will line up against the Reds.
David de Gea
The best goalkeeper in the league, and probably the world, De Gea will start.
Valencia is an undisputed starter at right-back for United.
Smalling is set to keep his place after netting against Palace.
Bailly is set to be called upon in place of Victor Lindelof.
Young is in line to play on the left to make up the back four.
Matic, fresh off the back of his incredible late strike against Palace, is set to start.
McTominay is likely to play in midfield alongside Matic.
Pogba, too, is poised to start and make up the middle three.
Mata is likely to be called upon to provide some creativity from midfield.
Sanchez, despite his poor form of late, is set to keep his place in what is a huge game for both sides.
Lukaku netted again against Palace on Monday and will be desperate to net against Liverpool.
