4-3-3: Manchester United XI vs Liverpool – Carrick returns

Manchester United take on Liverpool this weekend, in a fiercely contested fixture that historically produces goals galore. This game should be no different, with two sides who are struggling defensively at this current time.

The North-West teams are both battling for a place in the Champions League next term, and we’ve decided to have a look at the best possible XI for United, factoring in the current injury situation.

Wayne Rooney will once again lead the line, with Anthony Martial playing on the left and Jesse Lingard starting on the right-hand side.

The midfield three looks to have a nice balance about it, with Ander Herrera playing furthest forward. He’ll have protection from both Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin in behind.

The back five will remain unchanged. David de Gea starts in goal, with Chris Smalling and Daley Blind in the middle of the field. Darmian and Young will play on the flanks.
