Liverpool predicted XI v Manchester United: Jose Enrique dropped, Alberto Moreno back in

Posted by

Reds could make slight changes for crunch top flight clash…

Daniel Sturridge and Jon Flanagan remain long-term injury victims, while Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana and Kolo Toure are rated as doubtful.

Here’s the side we think Brendan Rodgers will select to start against Manchester United on Sunday lunchtime.

GK) Simon Mignolet

The Belgian is our only option between the sticks with Brad Jones not Premier League quality, meaning Mignolet’s a certainty to retain his spot between the sticks.

DR) Glen Johnson

Johnson should be up against Ashley Young, who will either play as wing-back or a conventional left-back for the home team. Young is weak defensively, and Johnson could use his offensive skills in tandem with Raheem Sterling down the right to cause him trouble.

DL) Alberto Moreno

Jose Enrique was dreadful against FC Basel, and he’ll surely drop to the bench as a result. Moreno could be brought in (as most fans would like) , but Javier Manquillo is also an option – meaning he’ll be on the right if selected, and Johnson on the left.

DC) Martin Skrtel

Skrtel was unbelievable during both fixtures against United last season, and he’ll be hoping to put in a similarly colossus display this time around.

DC) Dejan Lovren

Mamadou Sakho is back fit, and Kolo Toure is available again after recovering from a knock – but having done relatively well against Basel, Lovren could keep his spot in central defence.
