Confirmed Starting XI: Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku lead the line in 4-4-2 formation against Liverpool

Manchester United will host Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League. It will be the second match against Liverpool this season and a way to make amends after the 3-1 defeat at Anfield in December which saw the end of Jose Mourinho’s reign as United manager. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have been playing a much better brand of football, only losing one match out of the 13 played during his caretaker management role.

United has now found themselves in fourth place in the Premier League, ahead of both Arsenal and Chelsea, sitting a point ahead also with a plus-one goal difference. Chelsea will not play in the Premier League this weekend as they face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final. Arsenal host Southampton at the same time as this match, so neither team will have an advantage on the other in terms of who can rise to fourth or even stay in fourth place in the league table.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw;

Herrera, McTominay, Mata, Pogba;

Rashford, Lukaku


Romero; Bailly, Dalot; Lingard, Pereira, Fred; Sanchez

United lost their first game under Solskjaer against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League the week before last, meaning that United are undefeated in the other 12 matches they have played. In the last six matches, United have scored 11 goals, conceded five and kept three clean sheets, the latest against Chelsea in the Emirates FA Cup on Monday evening, knocking the holders out of the tournament. United will need to have their wits about them against Liverpool though.

Liverpool seems to have bottled the Premier League title recently, which was to be expected as it is something that they have been known for, especially in the last few years. Manchester City found themselves back at the top of the league, although they have played a game more than Liverpool. A victory over United would see them at the top again, three points ahead of City – level on matches played. United will need to do City a favour but also themselves, keeping them in the top four this weekend.
