THE TEAM NEWS

MAN UTD

  • Man Utd come into this game desperate to get a result against their arch-rivals but their form was woeful prior to the international break.
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not helped by a whole host of injuries at the moment but he will hope to recoup some of his players for this game although his biggest concern is over David de Gea who limped off while on international duty with Spain due to a thigh problem.
  • Lindelof and Wan-Bissaka appear the most likely to be fit and there is an outside chance that Martial will be fit to be on the bench but Pogba has been ruled out for another week.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; Matic, McTominay; Andreas Pereira, Lingard, James; Rashford

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Fosu-Mensah (Injured), De Gea (Injured), Pogba (Injured)

Doubtful: Wan-Bissaka (Injured), Shaw (Injured), Jones (Injured), Martial (Injured), Lingard (Injured), Greenwood (Injured), Lindelof (Injured)

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool's relentless form has seen them win their last 17 league games as they have Man City's record of 18 in a row in their sights.
  • Jurgen Klopp has been reluctant to rotate too much so far this season and that may be the case as they make the short trip to Old Trafford.
  • Alisson has been edging closer to fitness in recent weeks and it would be no surprise if the Brazilian returned to the starting line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Shaqiri (Injured)

Doubtful: Alisson (Injured), Matip (Injured), Salah (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

United will be desperate to become the first team to take points off Liverpool this season but their only chance of stopping them will be to keep things tight at the back. They will likely adopt a cautious approach even at home and that should lead to a low-scoring affair between the two teams.
