Here’s the confirmed Liverpool lineup to face Manchester United at Old Trafford today. The Reds compete in one of the biggest games of their season.
Liverpool go into this one knowing that a win would be a massive title statement. It would also dramatically increase pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and continue Manchester United’s poor form – that’s always fun.
But against a selection of world-class attackers, Jurgen Klopp has some difficult decisions to make. Can he risk being very attacking? And can Liverpool expect to dominate possession here?
The latter is arguably the biggest question. Solskjaer hasn’t been shy about defending deep and playing on the counter-attack against Liverpool – even at Old Trafford.
That may prompt Liverpool to play a possession-heavy team. But Klopp also can’t afford to get that decision wrong if United decide to go for it.
So with all of that in mind, let’s see what Klopp’s gone for.
