Lingard Ousted, Bailly & Martial To Start: Manchester United vs Liverpool Possible Line-up

Manchester United will welcome rival Liverpool to Old Trafford for a Premier League game in the early hour of Saturday and football lovers in England have been given some best Premier League betting tips.

The Red Devils bounced back from a two nil down to defeat Crystal Palace by 3-2 right in from their home fans at Selhurst Park on Monday night and Jose Mourinho will hope to build on that momentum as they take on Liverpool.

The Red Devils held Liverpool to a frustrating 0-0 draw in October last year despite the Reds dominating United in the game.

However, Mourinho would like to get the three maximum points in weekend’s game to secure united second place spot on the league table.

The Portuguese tactician is expected to make some key changes to the team that faced Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Liverpool is a free-scoring side and as a result, Mourinho must make sure he has a strong defence that can withstand Liverpool attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Ivory Coast international Eric Baily is expected to make his first start for United since returning from injury.

The 23-year old defender would likely pair Chris Smalling at the centre-back while Victor Lindelof returns to the bench.

Serbian defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic has been a player to reckon with in United squad this season. The former Chelsea man has been on sparkling form for the Red Devils and he scored the crucial winning goal for United in the 91st minute on Monday night.

Matic and youngster Scott McTominay are expected to shield the defence from the attack of Liverpool midfield players while France international Paul Pogba plays ahead of them in the number 10 role.

New signing Alexis Sanchez is still struggling to make impact in United jersey since making a switch to Old Trafford in January, as Premier Soccer Chat agree with.

The highly energetic and skillful attacker had another disappointing outing on Monday night.

Sanchez gave away the ball over 30 times during a 90-minute game against the Eagles and that would be a concern for Mourinho going into weekend game.

The former Arsenal man has only managed to find the back of the net once since his switch to Old Trafford and that goal came in in the FA Cup win over Yeovil back in February where he netted from a penalty rebound.

However, the Chilean is likely to retain his position at the left wing in weekend’s game against the Merseyside club.

Anthony Martial could be returning to the starting line up as he seeks to improve his performance after he was left out in Monday game.

Though Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia were substituted in in Monday match, both players are expected to make a return to Manchester United vs Liverpool starting line-up this Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku has been prolific in front of goal for United in the last few weeks. The Belgian is expected to continue his fine run of form this week as he leads United attack.

This is how we expect Portuguese tactician Mourinho to line-up his team with David de Gea in the goal post.
