Predicted Starting XI: Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United and Liverpool go head-to-head for the first time this season today, with Louis van Gaal having a few selection dilemmas on his hands ahead of the biggest game in English football.

Club captain Wayne Rooney is nursing a slight hamstring problem so he is a doubt to start, with the manager now having to choose from giving a debut to Anthony Martial or going with the big Belgian Marouane Fellaini.

David de Gea should return to the line-up, meaning somewhat ironically the back of the field looks the strongest area for Manchester United at this moment in time.

Memphis Depay should start despite suffering a knock whilst on international duty, with Ander Herrera and Juan Mata all set to continue just in-behind the striker.

Predicted XI

De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger; Depay, Herrera, Mata; Fellaini.
