David de Gea – Now that his contract situation is sorted, De Gea will go straight back in goal. Welcome back, Dave!
Matteo Darmian – One of the first names on the team-sheet. Deservedly named Manchester United’s Player of the Month for August.
Chris Smalling – Nominated for Premier League Player of the Month for August and that sums up how he is playing right now.
Luke Shaw – Equally as impressive as Smalling at the moment. Will cause Liverpool lots of problems down the left.
Morgan Schneiderlin – The first midfielder on the team-sheet, guaranteed to start when fit.
Juan Mata – Has had the right-wing to himself so far this year.
Memphis Depay – Want to see him out on the left wing where he is so much more effective.
Wayne Rooney – After becoming England’s all-time record goalscorer, Rooney should be full of confidence.
Predicted formation – 4-3-3: Louis van Gaal has been using the 4-2-3-1 formation for the majority of the season but I’d like to see real width against Liverpool to expose their full-backs.
