As we look ahead to yet another Liverpool-Manchester United fixture on Sunday, the tension and pressure could not be more palpable. The title implications of this one could be catastrophic for Liverpool if things go awry.

However, the Reds continue to get healthier as we saw the return of Curtis Jones on Thursday during the win over Sheffield United. Andy Robertson also made a return from his knock and proved to be an instant impact.

While Liverpool have players returning, Manchester United have lost defenders Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof in recent days as well.

They are coming off a a gut-punch of a loss to Chelsea in the midweek so it will be interesting to see what they come out with in this one. Let's see how Liverpool could lineup though.

Goalkeeper: Caoimhin Kelleher

Defenders: Conor Bradley, Jarell Quansah, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson

Midfielders: Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo, Dominik Szoboszlai

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz

Probable Subs: Cody Gakpo, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, Joe Gomez

Now, I would not be surprised to see Gomez getting the start over Bradley at right-back in this one as Bradley did not have the best performance in this fixture in the FA Cup Quarterfinal collapse to United.

I don't think Konate, who went the full 90 minutes on Thursday with a few knocks, will be able to go right away in this one. Quansah should be well rested and he has hardly put a foot wrong this season.

I think the front three must stay the same as they seemingly have a strong rhythm going and they have all found the back of the net in the last two matches.

Endo being rested for the Sheffield United game was a good decision as the midfield still did well and the Japanese ace should be fully charged in this one. His ability to break up counter attacks could prove crucial if the time arises.

This match comes just a bit too soon for Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold who should both be back in training this week and will be available going forward. Gakpo off the bench is a nice option as his goal should the need be there.

Robertson looked to be back to his best on Thursday so he should be a comfortable start at the left-back spot.

It's going to be a group effort to get the win in hostile territory for Liverpool so whoever does get the start must come ready to play from the opening kickoff.
