Eric Baily, Lindelof, Elenga Starts – Confirm Manchester United Starting XI vs Liverpool
Liverpool won the rematch 5-0 at Old Trafford in October. That outcome was the ultimate humiliation for United, and the score could have reached double figures if Liverpool hadn’t just played with the Reds after halftime.
Liverpool is in contention for the quadruple, whereas United has been knocked out of all cup tournaments. The talent gap between the two competitors is evident, and United will be anxious to put in a good performance against their opponents. With only six Premier League games remaining, United must avoid defeat to keep their dreams of finishing in the top four alive.
Alex Telles is a jerk. In the United back four, Aaron Wan-Bissaka would be preferable. On Saturday, the Brazilian was atrocious, and United should never have signed him, thus Dalot shifts to left-back. It would be absurd to select center-backs who lack pace, and no one expects Eric Bailly to start.
Next to Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard is the auxiliary enforcer. Lingard is a high-energy player who came into the United team under Louis van Gaal for his off-the-ball abilities rather than his on-the-ball ones. For one night only, he must follow Liverpool’s dropping forwards.
Neither Paul Pogba nor Bruno Fernandes should start, but one must be chosen.
