Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction at Manchester United


Liverpool head to Manchester United on Sunday even more fired up than usual for the second of their two annual Premier League grudge matches. The Reds know that a result will put them back atop the table over Manchester City, who will clash with Chelsea on the same day at Wembley Stadium in the EFL Cup final.

United defender Ashley Young has warned the visitors that his side have another gear now that they can reach, so it remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool use those words as bulletin board material. They are certainly motivated plenty enough as it is. For superstar Mohamed Salah, this match has plenty of individual motivation as well.

This is the only side that he has faced in the Premier League more than once and not scored or assisted on a single goal as of yet. He’ll be a part of the Reds’ first string front line that will come into Old Trafford looking to score early and often. Let’s take a look at who else could be in the first team, supporting the attack.
