We are almost at the next scintillating fixture in United’s jam packed month and a half journey. It’s United vs Liverpool at Old Trafford ! But this particular match will see City fans supporting United as City are par with Liverpool with the former team played an extra game.
Lets take a look at the best playing XI Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can put for the United vs Liverpool game.
BEST PLAYING XI FOR MANCHESTER UNITED VS LIVERPOOL :
GOALKEEPER : DAVID DE GEA
There is no point in even mentioning this category. We all know there is only one winner, and he would start in any XI in the world. Golden Glove David De Gea is back after Romero’s stellar display against Chelsea in the FA Cup. Fans will hope and rely for another stand out from him in United vs Liverpool match.
LB: LUKE SHAW
The Southampton lad is a regular this season under Ole and has proven his potential after being sidelined for most of his senior career at United. However the only drawback is that when he is outpaced, he draws back the opponent. He has the highest number of yellow cards in the league for United and that is not a stat to be proud of – especially when the upcoming match is United vs Liverpool.
CB: VICTOR LINDELOF
Among the most consistent players this season under Ole -after Pogba, Rashford and Herrera. The Swedish Ice Man has been ice cold in keeping opponents out of his goal. He is definitely the first choice center back at United now after the shaky start to his United life last season.
CB : CHRIS SMALLING
After a solid display against Chelsea in the FA Cup (and mainly because Eric Bailly is still untamed) Smalling is expected to start. Nothing to expect from him though. We all know how much of a tease Phil Jones and Smalling are.
RB : ASHLEY YOUNG
The right back captain saga will continue in the United vs Liverpool match. Antonio Valencia has handed over the armband to his replacement.
ANDER HERRERA :
The most passionate player on the field, I think. He has been marshaling the midfield in every game. Tireless, in and out performances, and endless running – yes I am a big Herrera fan. Deserves a lot of unclaimed credit.
NEMANJA MATIC :
The Chelsea purchase has been instrumental in setting Pogba free, along with Herrera and will be looking forward to do the same in the United vs Liverpool match. The cover provided will be important in keeping Liverpool out of United’s goal.
PAUL POGBA :
If there is one certainty in United vs Liverpool game’s team sheet it is this man. Paul Pogba, the highest goalscorer this season has been on fire since being unleashed.
JUAN MATA :
The Spanish playmaker has been surgical in his displays and is a top top player. He will be crucial to break the liverpool back line with his passes.
MARCUS RASHFORD :
The homegrown and homeborn lad is lethal. No other long odes because let’s face it – his best is yet to come. He’s been in a good form lately and will continue to maintain the same in Manchester United vs Liverpool match.
ROMELU LUKAKU :
I regret naming him in this XI but with Martial and Lingard out injured and Sanchez not exactly being seen even when he is on, his head to aim for is good enough for a starting place in this game.
Let’s get the game on and let’s pray for a win. 19 out of 20 teams will be supporting us in this game – because let’s face it, everybody hates Liverpool. And as Manchester United, getting anything except 3 points out of this game – regardless of who is managing – is unacceptable. There are some games that you just have to win and this is always going to be one of those.
