Predicted XI: Manchester United vs Liverpool – Welbeck missing, Young rewarded

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea – Undisputed No.1 despite admirable performances from Manchester United’s other goalkeepers on tour.

Jonny Evans – Alongside Jones, Evans has been very impressive and Louis van Gaal will want that continuity against Liverpool.

Phil Jones – Deserves another start after performance against Real Madrid.

Tyler Blackett – Strong cameo that included keeping Cristiano Ronaldo quiet should be enough to see him get the nod ahead of Michael Keane.

Ashley Young – Val Gaal has confirmed Young will play 90 minutes.

Antonio Valencia – No better alternative.

Darren Fletcher – Arguably been the player of the tour. Could captain again.

Ander Herrera – In attack, Van Gaal has stuck with his players throughout the tour and won’t change that for Liverpool.

Juan Mata – Dead cert.

Wayne Rooney – Dead cert No.2.

Will Keane – In Danny Welbeck’s absence, it’s a toss-up between Keane and Hernandez.

What do you think the starting XI will be against Liverpool?
