Manchester United have been presented with an opportunity to send out a real message to the rest of the Premier League this afternoon.
The Red Devils will head to Anfield in buoyant mood, following some excellent form before the international break.
Liverpool away is never an easy fixture, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for Jose Mourinho and his men. Our opponents come into this game struggling, particularly defensively.
Hopefully, United go out and attack, and judging by the starting XI, that’s what the boss is planning on doing.

As expected, there is no Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba or Marouane Fellaini, which has meant a two-man midfield of Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera. We’ll probably also see Henrikh Mkhitaryan deployed in a slightly deeper role. There is also no Eric Bailly which is a cause for concern as he’s not on the bench. Marcus Rashford drops out of the XI.
Anthony Martial finally gets a richly-deserved chance to start. This is a huge opportunity for the 21-year-old, and he simply has to grasp this chance with both hands – and go out and send a message to the manager.
