Predicted Liverpool lineup (4-3-3) to face Manchester United, Van Dijk and Salah start

Predicted Liverpool XI vs Manchester United

Liverpool have the opportunity to leapfrog Manchester City to the top of the Premier League table when they face arch-rivals Manchester United on the road this weekend.

The Reds presently have a game in hand over Pep Guardiola's side and they can jump ahead of their title challengers with at least a draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Alisson Becker has been the Reds first-choice goalkeeper for both the Premier League and Champions League duties and he should feature between the sticks once more.

In the defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson should feature in the right and left-back positions while Virgil van Dijk is set to partner Dejan Lovren in central defence after missing the midweek Champions League game with a European suspension.

Skipper Jordan Henderson should once more occupying the holding midfield role for the Reds and ahead of him, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum are likely to feature which should drop Naby Keita to the bench. Fabinho recently impressed against Bayern with a shutout while playing at centre-back.

In the attack front, Jurgen Klopp has no selection headaches and the familiar duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah should feature on the right and left side of the attack with Roberto Firmino leading the line as he has for most of the campaign.
