Manchester United is all set to invite Liverpool for their Sunday’s Premier League match at Old Trafford. The two most popular clubs in English football will revive their rivalry. The hosts will practically seal a top-four spot next season with a win over their biggest rivals, while Liverpool already has a long way to go to qualify for the Champions League. Here is everything need to know about Manchester United vs Liverpool prediction and lineup.
Manchester United lineup: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani
To face Liverpool, Dean Henderson will almost definitely return to the starting lineup, while Eric Bailly will expect to make his first appearance for United since March.
Following a 6-2 win over Roma in the Europa League semi-final first-leg on Thursday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds himself in an odd role for Sunday’s match against Liverpool.
Liverpool lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Kabak, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota
Nat Phillips’ injury recovery period would decide the return of Fabinho to central midfield at Old Trafford on Sunday.
After recovering from injury Curtis Jones came off the bench against Newcastle last weekend. Five Liverpool stars are now on the sidelines.
Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, and Diogo Jota all started against Newcastle, but one of them could be dropped here.
Firmino and Mane, in particular, have been ineffective in front of goal for some time, but Klopp is reluctant to dismiss any player due to his devotion to them.
Manchester United vs Liverpool prediction
It is unclear what kind of squad Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would field against Liverpool after a convincing win over Roma on Thursday.
Liverpool has failed to maintain any kind of continuity for a long time. Their defense has been hurting them all season, and the club had a season filled with injuries. Given Man United’s recent history of 0-0 draws and Liverpool’s continuing goal-scoring woes, it’s tempting to expect another stalemate for Sunday’s match.
Although we expect the spoils to be shared at the end of the match, we are looking for a more exciting match than the one that took place at Anfield in January.
