4-2-3-1: Manchester United XI vs Liverpool – Herrera & Rashford benched

Manchester United face one of their toughest tasks of the season on Thursday, with their second trip of the campaign to Anfield taking place, and the first match of a double header against Liverpool. Louis van Gaal will certainly be wanting to pick the strongest possible team for this one.

This is certainly a game where experience comes to the fore and Manchester United don’t have an awful lot of that in some areas of the field. David de Gea will get the nod in goal, with Guillermo Varela returning to the right-back slot, and Rojo starting on the left flank. Daley Blind and Chris Smalling will continue at the heart go defence.

Michael Carrick will come back into the side to partner alongside Morgan Schneiderlin, in a defensive formation that Louis van Gaal will almost certainly play.

The front four have to be full of pace and deadly on the counter attack. Juan Mata will play as the #10, with Memphis Depay and Jesse Lingard starting on the flanks. Anthony Martial will start as the lone striker.
