Predicted Liverpool XI to face Manchester United in the FA Cup

Liverpool will be visiting rivals Manchester United in the 4th round of the FA Cup. The Reds have struggled immensely in their last few games, winning just the one game in the last five. The only win came in the last round against Aston Villa.

On the other hand, Manchester United are cruising with quite some momentum under their belt. Both these sides eked out a draw last time they played but this time, a winner has to emerge. The Reds will be buoyed by the fact that the game is at Old Trafford, where the hosts have somewhat struggled.

Liverpool Team News

Jurgen Klopp will have a few injury concerns to deal with. There remain long-term absentees Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Diogo Jota. The duo of Naby Kieta and Kostas Tsimikas also remain out. Some good news will be the return of Joel Matip to defensive duties. However, captain Jordan Henderson might be a doubt with his groin injury.

Probable Liverpool XI vs Manchester United

Formation: 4-3-3

Alisson (GK)

Alisson has proved his worth time and again in the side with crucial saves in every game.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The youngster is horribly out of form and looks no close to getting back to his best.

Joel Matip (CB)

His return should help given how depleted Klopp’s defensive resources are.

Fabinho (CB)

The Brazilian still continues in the backline in the absence of key defenders.

Andy Robertson

Andy Robertson (LB)

Perhaps one of the better defenders currently, Robertson has been producing his best.

Thiago (DM)

The Spaniard has been in sublime form in the last few games with his all-round midfield play.

Xherdan Shaqiri (CM)

Shaqiri has been trusted to play in the midfield and he hasn’t done too badly.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Will be vital to the side’s domination in midfield with his work rate and energy.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Should return to the starting line-up after just featuring as a substitute in the last game.

Roberto Firmino (CF)

Firmino really needs to start finding the goals Liverpool so desperately need and soon.

Sadio Mane (LW)

Mane has always impressed with his tireless contributions through the game and should retain his place.
