Liverpool visit Old Trafford on Sunday to face off against their traditional rivals, Manchester United in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in tremendous form over the past few weeks, led ably by the terrific Mohammed Salah. Liverpool’s attack and defence selections are easy to predict but Klopp does have problems in midfield mainly due to injuries. Klopp confirmed that Thiago is out for the game but Curtis Jones has some chance of featuring as he is back in training.
Liverpool expected formation against Man United
Liverpool are expected to continue Klopp’s favoured 4-3-3 formation against Manchester United as well. The defence and the attack picks itself but in midfield Klopp has to decide between picking one of Milner, Keita and Curtis Jones. Although Keita recently has shown that he is threat from long distance, his defensive awareness and positioning have given Liverpool problems. James Milner is much better in that regard but having played in a high intensity game against Atletico Madrid in midweek, he might not be at his best on Sunday.
Liverpool will look to start the game on the front foot with their high intensity pressing and Man United are expected to sit back and try on play on the counter. Whatever the end result might be, this game will be an exciting matchup between two contrasting styles.
