Projected Man Utd Starting XI against Liverpool

Manchester United will face Liverpool in what is expected to be a tough and nerve-wracking test on Sunday. After a promising run of results in November, Erik ten Hag’s team has slipped back into poor form. They suffered a 3-0 loss to Bournemouth and were recently defeated by Bayern Munich, resulting in their exit from Europe. This dip in form has left the Red Devils in a precarious position as they head to Anfield.

Recent visits to Anfield have not been pleasant for Manchester United fans. With Jurgen Klopp’s side sitting at the top of the Premier League, the upcoming match looks to be another challenging one for the Red Devils. Adding to the pressure is the long list of absentees from the team, making the task even more daunting for Man Utd.

Here’s the team Ten Hag may choose as Man Utd prepares to take on Liverpool in the Premier League.
GK: Andre Onana – Onana will need to be at the top of his game to avoid making any costly errors in a match of this magnitude.
RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Wan-Bissaka has a track record of performing well in games against big sides, and he thrives on the backs-to-the-wall mentality required in high-stakes fixtures.
CB: Raphael Varane – With uncertainty surrounding his future at the club, Varane’s return in the match against Bayern Munich brought some stability to the team’s defense.
CB: Jonny Evans – With Harry Maguire confirmed to miss out, Evans will face Liverpool as a Man Utd player for the first time since December 2014. Despite the challenge, he will relish the opportunity to play against his former team.
LB: Luke Shaw – Shaw’s fitness is a massive boost for the team, especially considering their vulnerabilities when right-back Diogo Dalot has had to cover on the left.

Midfielder Scott McTominay, Sofyan Amrabat, and young talent Kobbie Mainoo are expected to step up, with Bruno Fernandes suspended. The pressure will be on them to deliver in a demanding fixture against Liverpool.
In the attacking roles, the likes of Antony, Rasmus Hojlund, and Marcus Rashford will be tasked with creating goal-scoring opportunities. Rashford, in particular, will be eager to replicate his past success against Liverpool by finding the back of the net in this crucial match.

Manchester United’s upcoming clash with Liverpool is undoubtedly one of the most crucial fixtures of their season. With the Premier League title race heating up, a positive result at Anfield could prove to be a turning point for the Red Devils. However, the challenge is significant, given their recent struggles and the formidable nature of the opposition. As both teams prepare to take to the field, all eyes will be on Manchester United as they seek to overcome the odds and secure a vital victory.
