How we think Liverpool will line up against Man United

However, while teammate Alisson came straight back into the side after making the same trip, Fabinho was left on the bench at the Wanda Metropolitano before replacing goalscorer Naby Keita at half-time.

Whether Keita will make way for Fabinho or whether James Milner could drop out remains to be seen, while Curtis Jones is also back in contention but Thiago Alcantara remains out injured.

“What’s clear is that Curtis will train with us today, that’s the plan. And Thiago not. So these are the two things I know for the moment,” said Jurgen Klopp on Friday.

“Curtis will train with us today completely, he should be in contention. Thiago is running again, which is a good sign. I am not sure if he will return before the international break. But for sure after it. We will see.”

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino looks certain to keep his place in attack following his recent return to form.

The Brazilian had been in and out of the side in the early part of the season, with Diogo Jota often preferred, but scored a hat-trick against Watford last weekend and has been back to his best in combinations with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool predicted XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Mane, Firmino, Salah.
