Man United predicted line-up vs Liverpool: Solskjaer goes full strength to retain top-spot

Manchester United are set to travel to arch-rivals Liverpool in a tense Premier League clash on Sunday. Both sides will come into Sunday’s game occupying the league’s two top spots with the Red Devils currently three-points clear.

Ahead of Sunday’s clash which is scheduled to kick-off at 4.30pm UK time, we have predicted how we expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to line his Red Devils up.

David De Gea

United’s number-one will line-up against Liverpool, no question.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

One of the easiest picks. Wan-Bissaka is clear of anyone else in the United squad when playing at right-back.

The young English defender will be tasked with keeping Sadio Mane quiet.

Eric Bailly

First name on the team sheet at the moment. Bailly is enjoying a hugely impressive spell in form.

When paired alongside Harry Maguire, United’s flamboyant Ivorian shines.

Harry Maguire

Club captain. Will start.

Luke Shaw

I would be very surprised to see Solskjaer drop his first-choice left-back despite Shaw having a relatively quiet game last time out.

Scott McTominay

A midfield duo of McTominay and Fred is likely to be Solskjaer’s preferred option.


As above.

I fully expect the Brazilian to work alongside McTominay in order to break up Liverpool’s playmaking duo of Thiago and Gini Wijnaldum.

Paul Pogba

In brilliant form of late and scored the winner against Burnley on Tuesday. Confident Pogba will start again on Sunday.

Bruno Fernandes

Despite a quiet match against Burnley I still think Fernandes’ presence on the pitch is undroppable.

I fully expect to see Solskjaer name the Portuguese Magnifico as his number-10.

Marcus Rashford

A midfield diamond will only allow for two up the top and I expect it to be a pairing of Rashford and Edinson Cavani, especially considering Anthony Martial picked up a minor knock against Burnley.

Edinson Cavani

Time to write your name in the United folklore, El Matador.

  2. Wooow great line up am ok woth this its cool and urge them to be focus determine and be confident both mentally psychologically and physically strong,fearless and with a mindset of winning not a draw alld best i love this clud

  3. You all should be more confident, be strong, be fearless give them what they need I need winning if you have a goal try to score another one let them be scared of you. You all should be physically strong do not let anything to bring you down and please please avoid early goal frm them.

  4. I would have loved to see Matic in the line-up for positive reinforcement. Fred often gives away ball easily and lacks physicality to absorb pressure.
