Combined Manchester United And Liverpool’s First XI Based On Team Form And Fitness

Manchester United will take on Liverpool on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford as a blockbuster fixture between these two giants kick-start this game week.

The rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool is known as North-West Derby. It is a high-profile inter-city rivalry in English football. The North-West Derby is considered to be one of the biggest rivalries in the world of football.

Jose Mourinho’s side have lost only twice at their home stadium this season. And fans are hoping to see their club secure the second spot at the end of the season.

Liverpool, who are currently third with only two points behind second United in the Premier League table, are looking to overtake their arch-rivals.

However, the Merseysiders have not won at ‘The Theatre Of Dreams’ since March 2014 – when United were under David Moyes’ management.

Klopp’s side have parted with £75million to land Holland international defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton in this January. Now, we can assure that the Merseysiders are no longer struggling in their backline.

This will be the sixth Premier League match for the Dutchman since then; while Alexis Sanchez will be hunting his second goal for United following his move from Arsenal.

According to former Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren: “Once a red – in terms of Manchester United – always a red. Once you work there, you’re part of the family. It’s ingrained in you. And you know the size of the club, we did this with Twitter – you can explain that – but they’ve got far more followers. So Manchester United, bigger club.”

But which team that has a better squad to select from going into this Premier League clash at Old Trafford?

Goalkeeper: David de Gea – Manchester United
