Key Man United assets return but Greenwood and Mané benched at Old Trafford

Manchester United name a strong team to face Liverpool in their final match of Triple Gameweek 35.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) and Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) all return to the attack although Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) misses out on a third start in as many matches, named on the bench.

Paul Pogba (£7.6m) also comes back into the side and looks side to feature on the left-hand side of attacking midfield, which would see Rashford take up the right-hand position again.

Manchester United’s defence is also back to relative full-strength with Luke Shaw (£5.5m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.7m) in the full-back roles either side of Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) and Eric Bailly (£4.8m), the latter standing in for an injured Harry Maguire (£5.6m).

Meanwhile, despite scoring against Southampton on Saturday, Sadio Mané (£11.7m) drops to the Liverpool bench to make way for Roberto Firmino (£9.0m).

That means a fifth-successive Premier League start for the versatile Diogo Jota (£7.0m) who, today, looks set to play in Mané’s left-wing role on the opposite flank to Mohamed Salah (£12.7m).

With Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) and Ben Davies (£4.7m) still on the sidelines alongside Virgil van Dijk (£6.2m), Joel Matip (£5.4m) and Joe Gomez (£5.2m), Nathaniel Phillips (£4.1m) and Rhys Williams (£4.0m) are Liverpool’s centre-back partnership for the second match in a row.

Triple Gameweek 35 Line-ups

Manchester United XI: Henderson; Shaw, Bailly, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Fred; Pogba, B Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, N Phillips, R Williams, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Jota, Firmino, Salah.

    Guess this is why Ole always sat back and countered in these games. United struggle to hold a high line and play out from the back. Liverpool exposing them with Phillips and Williams at the back. Imagine if United played like this against City!

    Keep going Trent another two assists and a goal and you might share 3 baps with Bruno
