Manchester United will be looking to secure a top-four spot when they host Liverpool on Sunday. The Red Devils lost to Leicester City in their last league game and will be looking to bounce back against a tough Liverpool side. A win against Liverpool, who have yet to be beaten by any team this season, would be difficult; however, given the quality of Manchester United's players, there is a chance that United will break their unbeaten streak.
On Wednesday, United stunned fans by coming back from a two-goal deficit to defeat Atalanta. This would undoubtedly frighten Liverpool, and I expect United to put up a fight when the two teams meet on Sunday. Here is my strongest possible likely to hand Liverpool thier first defeat this season.
David De Gea should start in goal. He has a lot of experience and knows how to put on a good show in big games like this.
Harry Marguire may have performed poorly on his return from injury against Leicester, but his performance against Atalanta was somewhat impressive and he should start alongside Eric Bailly. For the wing back, Wan-Bissaka (RB) and Luke Shaw (LB).
Pogba is expected to return to the starting lineup for the game on Sunday. The France international came off the bench against Atalanta and was a key figure in United's comeback. In midfield, he should play alongside Fred and Bruno Fernandes. Bruno was also outstanding against Atalanta, recording two assists while playing as an attacking midfielder. On Sunday, he would undoubtedly pose a threat to Liverpool's defense.
Mason Greenwood has recorded a lot of minutes and I believe he should be rested. Cavani, in my opinion, should be used as United's striker on Sunday, with Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford operating from the wings.
Here is my strongest XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka: Fred, Pogba; Rashford Fernandes, Ronaldo ; Cavani
