Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Liverpool FC


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he made a rash decision on Wednesday night and it backfired. The Manchester United manager played the team’s leading scorer, Marcus Rashford, in the FA Cup replay against Wolves, a match where perhaps the Mancunian might have been best served with a night off.

He got hurt and unless he’s absolutely positively 100% full fitness, then he should likely sit out United’s trip to Liverpool on Sunday. So what does OGS do now- Mason Greenwood?

Put Anthony Martial up top and add another attacking midfielder? Juan Mata has recently shown his value again, after having become a forgotten man. Can’t see a place for Jesse Lingard, as he’s been totally useless all season long.
