Alexis Sanchez & Eric Bailly: Manchester United & Liverpool likely XIs

Man United vs Liverpool

Manchester United will be all-guns-blazing on Sunday when Liverpool come to time.

It’s hugely unlikely that Man United can win the Premier League.

But if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can beat Liverpool this weekend, they could stop Jurgen Klopp’s side from winning the title.

Liverpool can move three points clear of Man City with a win at Old Trafford.

Probable Man United & Liverpool XIs

Ahead of Sunday’s match, the Guardian and the Times have both gone about predicting the respective line-ups for Super Sunday.

When it came to Man United there were a couple of differences of opinion.

Liverpool’s predicted XI drew likeminded thought.

Liverpool’s possible line-up

Starting with the Reds, the major question for Klopp is who to play in midfield.

The belief is that Naby Keita will miss out.

There’s also no room for James Milner in the team.

Jordan Henderson is set to retain his place in the team after a fine Champions League performance vs PSG.

Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho will complete the trio in midfield.

At the back, Joel Matip should partner Virgil Van Dijk. Dejan Lovren has been out through injury.

Up front, Liverpool will field their familiar attack of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

When it comes to predicting the United XI, two positions are difficult to call.

Starting at the centre-half, Solskjaer has options for Victor Lindelof’s partner.

On the one hand he could play Eric Bailly, alternatively Phil Jones may start.

Up front, it’s unclear who will play on the right hand side of the three-pronged attack.

Jesse Lingard is out injured.

Alexis Sanchez could get the nod, or OGS could pick Juan Mata to fill that void.

Elsewhere, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should start in attack.

Romelu Lukaku is expected to start on the bench.
