An under-pressure Liverpool outfit make the trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Saturday, and we take a stab at predicting Brendan Rodgers’ lineup for the big clash.
Man United players PETRIFIED by Louis Van Gaal’s ‘BULLDOG FACE’
Premier League predictions: Man United to maul Liverpool, Arsenal & Chelsea to pass tough tests
Man United v Liverpool preview: Selection headaches for Van Gaal but history is kind
Check it out below!
GK: Simon Mignolet
The Belgian did very little wrong against West Ham despite the 3-0 loss, and considering he notched up three consecutive clean sheets previously there’s very little chance the former Sunderland man will be dropped for this one.
RB: Nathaniel Clyne
Like the rest of the Reds defence, Clyne struggled against West Ham but overall the youngster has had a strong start to life at Anfield.
CB: Martin Skrtel
Skrtel was guilty of giving away far too many free-kicks against West Ham and cannot afford a repeat performance against Manchester United on Saturday. Still Liverpool’s best option in the heart of defence.
CB: Dejan Lovren
Lovren undid all of his good work this season with a shocking performance in the loss to the Hammers, but you get the sense that Brendan Rodgers will stick with the Croatian for at least one more match.
LB: Joe Gomez
Gomez had a tough afternoon against West Ham but nobody will expect the 18-year-old to be dropped for this one. The former Charlton man has shown maturity beyond his years but Saturday will be a massive test for the youngster.
