Liverpool vs Man United
Ahead of the big match between Liverpool vs Manchester United in the premier league match week 19 which will be held on Sunday (17/01/2021) tomorrow, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sure to rely on Paul Pogba.
Paul Pogba, who made a brilliant start to the season with a 1-0 win for Man United when he visited Turf Moor at home to Burnley on Wednesday, is expected to replicate his impressive performance against Liverpool tomorrow.
Reports from Sky Sports suggest that Paul Pogba is expected to feature as a starter in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 4-2-3-1 formation.
The formation will reportedly be chosen so that Pogba’s role can continue as it should without having to sacrifice Bruno Fernandes’ key role in Man United’s midfield.
Pogba is reportedly set to be put on the left flank, a side that many believe is the French midfielder’s best place so far.
He and Marcus Rashford will flank Bruno Fernandes behind Anthony Martial as the lone striker in this match.
While behind Pogba, Fernandes and Rashford, there are names Scott McTominay and Fred who are expected to fend off sporadic attacks from Liverpool.
McTominay and Fred will be Man United’s first wall before meeting a defensive line that will most likely be filled by names such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.
For the goalkeeper position, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be back playing David De Gea given his experience will be much needed by Man United in this one-sided match.
Pogba’s magic is expected to make Man United straddle Liverpool and further patent their position at the top of the standings.
Man United currently top the Premier League table with 36 points. Three points adrift of second-placed Liverpool.
Here are the predictions of the starting XI of Liverpool vs Man United in the big match of the 19th week of the Premier League, Sunday (17/1/2021) tomorrow:
Liverpool (4-3-3): Allison; Alexander Arnold, Matip/Williams, Fabinho, Robertson; Thiago, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Wrong, Firmino, Mane.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly/Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Martial.
