Reds can crank up the pressure today

Paul Gorst: The big away days just keep coming for Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have been guilty, for far too long, of not giving a proper account of themselves at Old Trafford, but they can really crank the pressure up on their great rivals today.

The back five remains unchanged for me. It’s Liverpool’s strong lineup on paper, so it’s a must at Manchester United.

Fabinho has to return to the midfield too and Naby Keita and James Milner can drop out with Curtis Jone s coming back into the fold.

I’m keeping faith with the same front three of Tuesday night with Diogo Jota waiting in the wings on the bench.

My team (4-3-3) : Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Jones, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Midfield remains the minefield

Ian Doyle: A big game and some big decisions for Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool may have won at Atletico Madrid in midweek, but they certainly weren't at their best with the Reds boss intimating he got his team selection wrong.

So what to do for the trip to Old Trafford to take on bitter North West rivals Manchester United?

First, the easy call. Alisson Becker is in goal.

In defence, I'm slightly concerned about the amount of minutes Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip are playing at centre-back. However, I suspect this might be the last time the duo are paired together for a few games, so stick with them. So too the full-backs.

Midfield, though, is the real minefield. Fabinho has to start, and the availability of Curtis Jones means he can bring legs.

The final slot is the tricky call. And having been a bit concerned by the form of Jordan Henderson of late, I'd have James Milner in there, at least from the start.

Up top, in-form Roberto Firmino scored twice at United in May so he can join Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, although Diogo Jota will certainly get a go at some point.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Milner, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

'Traditional' front three bang in form

Hannah Pinnock: I expect Klopp to keep his defence the same. There's a time and a place to switch things up and United away is not one of them.

Alisson will be in goal and the usual back four ahead of him.

Midfield is the only position I expect a change to the team that started against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

Fabinho simply has to start, while Henderson will also be needed. Keita may be given another chance here but, for me, with Jones fit again, I'd like to see him go straight back into the team.

The front three I expect will remain unchanged. Of course, there is always a shout for Jota, but all three scored against Watford last weekend and are in good form.

My team (4-3-3) : Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Jones will be eager to make presence felt

Tom Cavilla: There shouldn’t be much of a selection headache for Jurgen Klopp at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Alisson will return to Premier League action after impressing against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday evening, with the back four also remaining the same.

The midfield department is where things are a little bit more up for debate, with decisions to be made on the likes of Fabinho and Naby Keita.

I would go with a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Curtis Jones, dropping Keita to the bench.

Jones will certainly be eager to make his presence felt after missing the Reds’ previous two games, and what a fixture to be involved in.

In attack, I would allow Roberto Firmino to retain his place in favour of Diogo Jota. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah essentially pick themselves.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Mane, Firmino, Salah.
