On that occasion, Daniel James and Andreas Pereira, who is on loan at Lazio, both started. Marcus Rashford was unavailable due to injury but this time around, he will hopefully be raring to go and looking to continue his good record against Liverpool. Since last season’s meeting on Merseyside, Bruno Fernandes has arrived at United to bring his creative spark and another 2020 signing, Edinson Cavani, provides another option in attack.
There are big decisions to be made in midfield after Paul Pogba’s excellent Man-of-the-Match display at Burnley, while Fred was rested and Scott McTominay only came on towards the end. Matic also performed well and, if he is passed fit, he also has strong claims.
Ole could also look to the pace of James again in a bid to expose the home side’s defence, particularly if they play a high line, with Mason Greenwood another contender for a place.
