Loads of Man Utd fans react as Luke Shaw starts against Liverpool

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI to face Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon has raise some questions from Manchester United supporters.

It appears the United boss has opted with a back five formation, with left-backs Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw both in the side.

Shaw could therefore be starting as one of three centre-backs, partnering Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire.

This is a concern for United fans who have seen Shaw struggle this season, notably against Nicolas Pepe at the Emirates on New Years day.

Eric Bailly, who is on the bench after returning from a long-term injury layoff, would have been a better selection but he may not have been ready to start.

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford is unsurprisingly ruled out this afternoon with a back problem.

Anthony Martial and Daniel James are United’s only out and out attackers on the pitch, with Andreas Pereira likely to play in behind the pair.

Juan Mata has been excellent in his last two starts but it was inevitable Pereira would come back into the lineup for his pressing game.
