Manchester United host Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend, and go into the fixture after putting one foot in the Europa League.
It certainly gives us a boost having something to play for towards the end of the season, a bit of motivation – not that it should be needed against Liverpool. A win on Sunday would also put us in a very strong position to secure second place ahead of the top four chasing pack.
A defeat for Liverpool, on the other hand, would seriously threaten their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League so beating them tomorrow is a demand. They are not playing great at the moment after dropping four points ahead against Leeds and Newcastle.
Last week, however, United played out a draw versus Leeds, but the 6-2 win over AS Roma in the Europa League on Thursday. It should give us the confidence needed to beat the Scousers.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to secure second spot as soon as possible and he made several changes midweek, but here’s how we see him seeing up against Liverpool.
SN’s XI: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes; Greenwood, Cavani, Rashford.
That means we could see two changes from the line-up that started v Roma: Henderson in for De Gea and Greenwood in for Fred.
