Manchester United will be hoping to return to winning ways when they face off with Liverpool football club this weekend, the red devils have been struggling to win matches and the one against Liverpool could be a tough one.

But they can get a convincing win over Jorgen Klopp and his boys if they do some necessary things. Here are 3 things Manchester United should do if they want to beat Liverpool convincingly.

1 - Fred should not start: This is one player who has struggled to make an impact in Manchester United this season, he is poor in circulating the ball around and this is always preventing the team from having a great game.

The players of Liverpool football club are always very swift and they could take advantage of those mistakes that the Brazil midfielder is always making. Nemanja Scott McTominay should be the one to start in the defensive midfield position.

If the coach wants to use two defensive midfielders, then Nemanja Matic should be partnered by Scott McTominay who is more defensive and he is also good in circulating the passes.

2 - Eric Bailly should replace Victor Lindelof: The central defense partnership between Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire has not been very effective, but the coach might not want to drop Harry Maguire who is the captain of the team.

So he should replace Victor Lindelof with Eric Bailly who could pair with the England international to form a more impressive defense line. The Ivorian can be a very superb defender in some occasions and he could perform better than Victor Lindelof.

3 - The coach should use the 4-2-3-1 formation: This is one tactic that could give Manchester United an edge over Liverpool football club this weekend. With this formation, Cristiano Ronaldo will be able to receive more passes inside the box and he will not need to go deep into the midfield to get the ball.

This formation will also make the midfield to be more formidable even if Bruno Fernandes is not fit for this weekend's encounter. This is because the formation will make it possible for the coach to deploy two defensive midfielders while Paul Pogba will play as the central attacking midfielder.
