Does Lindelof return?

That United kept another clean sheet at Anfield has not changed the widespread view that Victor Lindelof was fortunate to have been recalled. In the last month, Eric Bailly has performed at a level that has been beyond Lindelof over the last 18 months yet Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has maintained his Scandinavian solidarity with the Swede.

Lindelof is available again this weekend and that could prolong the pattern of him and Bailly taking turns to start. There is more chance of Donald Trump conceding he lost the presidential election than Harry Maguire sitting out Sunday.

Henderson's chance

The expectation is Dean Henderson will continue his domestic cup duty in what would be his sixth successive start in the Carabao and FA Cups. Henderson has only conceded two goals during that run and there have been no ructions over his limited league playing time with David de Gea still the first choice.

Henderson might hope to start against his former club Sheffield United on Wednesday night and a polished performance against Liverpool would do his chances no harm.

How do United change their attack?

United were more threatening with Edinson Cavani on the pitch at Anfield and he equalised at Fulham. As unpredictable as some of Solskjaer's selections are, the prospect of a front four devoid of Cavani today appears unlikely.

Paul Pogba may have to return to the wing, although he is much more effective from the left than the right. Marcus Rashford's bench role at Fulham signalled a starting role against Liverpool, so Anthony Martial has to be the logical fall-guy. Cavani has netted four league goals to Martial's two, despite making nine fewer starts.

Changes at full-back?

Luke Shaw is performing at such a high level he is in need of a breather though that could come against Sheffield United. Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been starting by default, his form one of the few worrying aspects of United's unbeaten 13-game run in the league.

Axel Tuanzebe excelled at right-back at Everton last month and is overdue a start. With Brandon Williams injured and largely untested at right-back, Tuanzebe would be a dependable option.

Van de Beek to wait?

In Donny van de Beek's last three starts he has been substituted at half-time with United trailing, substituted with the game deadlocked before United won and faded against Watford of the Championship. If Fulham was deemed too much of a step up, then there is barely a debate over Van de Beek's role against Liverpool. It's as a substitute.
