Manchester United will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they face Liverpool in a ‘must win’ game at Old Trafford this Sunday. After securing a 3-2 victory over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be hoping his team can replicate their recent form which saw them come from a 2 goal down to record a famous win.
Manchester United have failed to taste victories in either of their last two English Premier League matches, as they were held by Everton before the international break, and lost to Leicester City in a 4-2 ‘goal feast’.
Facing Liverpool this weekend could be a season decider for Manchester United as all their direct rivals won their own weekend fixtures (Chelsea won Norwich City 7-0 while Manchester City won Brighton 4-1). In the match against Atlanta, Manchester United started with a back four (Wan-Bissaka, Lindeloef, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw), two holding midfielders (Scott McTominay and Fred), three attacking midfielders (Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford) and a lone striker (Cristiano Ronaldo).
It will be very difficult for Ole Gunner Solskjaer to start a different team, as most of the above mentioned players could start against Liverpool. However, Paul Pogba could still come in place for Scott Mc Tominay, as he was on the bench in Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League victory (Paul Pogba replaced Mc Tominay in the 66th minutes as he brought stability and cohesion to the back line).
David De Gea; Luke Shaw, Maguire, Lindeloef, Wan-Bissaka, Paul Pogba, Fred, Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo.
All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo and Salah, as both players remains one of their team’s hopes of securing all three points. Salah has a total of 7 goals from 8 Premier League matches this season, while Ronaldo has 3 goals from 5 matches.
Do you think Manchester United have what it takes to win Liverpool?
