Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Liverpool (FA Cup 4th Round)


Manchester United have only three fitness concerns heading into the weekend, when they’ll host Liverpool in the FA Cup 4th round. Only one of those players (Victor Lindelof) is a first teamer, and the other two are fringe players. That means United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could do some squad rotation on Sunday.

He doesn’t seem to name the same team in back to back games, so in looking at the team that won at Fulham on Wednesday, here’s what we think we’ll see against the rival Reds.

Liverpool are really struggling right now, and manager Jurgen Klopp will be focused on the trying to right his ship in league play, so they might rotate their side as well. It’s quite possible that this affair will look very different from what we saw last weekend.

Not that that’s a bad thing! Look for United to lineup in a 4-2-3-1.
