Confirmed Starting XI: United vs Liverpool – Dalot, Darmian start

Manchester United take on Liverpool in just under an hours time, as Jose Mourinho looks to masterclass the Red Devils to a positive result.

The game itself is likely one in which United won’t see much of the ball, and Mourinho’s team certainly backs that up. The official Twitter account posted the starting line-up, which includes ten changes from last time out against Valencia…

Obviously, David de Gea starts in goal. Here is where things start to get interesting. Diogo Dalot returns after missing the midweek game with an injury, with Matteo Darmian playing opposite him on the left. Chris Smalling gets the nod, as does Victor Lindelof, who has miraculously recovered and is ready to play.

Nemanja Matic will sit at the base of the midfield, with Ander Herrera in the team to provide that energy, spark and aggression. There is no place in the side for Paul Pogba, instead, Jesse Lingard plays.

Judging by the team sheet, Ashley Young will play further up field on the wing, with Marcus Rashford starting on the left-hand side. Romelu Lukaku will lead the line, in what is a vital game for our big Belgian.
