Five changes as Man United fans pick team to face Liverpool

2 min read

Manchester United go head-to-head with Liverpool once again today – this time in the FA Cup – after the sides played out a goalless draw in the Premier League at Anfield last weekend.

Both sides played in midweek, with United winning 2-1 at Fulham and Jurgen Klopp’s side losing 1-0 at home to Burnley. Those results opened up a six-point gap between the league leaders and the champions, with Liverpool winless in the league since before Christmas.

We asked you to pick your preferred starting line-up for United against Liverpool and have put together the most popular XI based on the responses received. The team features five changes from the side that started against Fulham last time out.

Dean Henderson replaces David De Gea in goal, having played in the previous round against Watford. Alex Telles gets the nod ahead of Luke Shaw at left-back, joining Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly and Harry Maguire in the back four.

So, no place for Victor Lindelof, who is expected to play after injury ruled him out against Fulham.

Donny van de Beek gets a chance to impress in midfield, having also featured in the last round, while Scott McTominay is also recalled.

Paul Pogba keeps his place, which means Fred and Bruno Fernandes are both given a breather.

Elsewhere, Marcus Rashford comes back into the front three at the expense of Anthony Martial, joining Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.

United fans’ XI to face Liverpool: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Bailly, Telles; Van de Beek, McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Cavani, Rashford.
