Attack – Rashford, Cavani, Pogba
Anthony Martial is expected to fall short in his battle to recover from a hamstring injury suffered against Burnley in midweek.
Solskjaer might have opted to go with Edinson Cavani up front in any case, with the hugely experienced Uruguay forward having started the last two games for which he was available.
Paul Pogba has impressed for United in recent weeks and likely to play on the left, which means Marcus Rashford will be deployed on the right of the Red Devils attack – while new signing Amad Diallo could be an option from the bench.
Predicted Manchester United team vs Liverpool (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani.
