Manchester United is getting ready to play one of the biggest football matches in the world this season, and in the Premier League as well, where the Red Devils will face Liverpool FC at home, Old Trafford, in a match that will be decisive for who will be finishing in the second place, where Manchester United is just two points above Liverpool FC in the Premier League table.
The full squad that will be included in today’s clash between Liverpool FC and Manchester United has been revealed by the photographers of Manchester Evening News where they spotted the players who arrived at the hotel, The Lowry Hotel, ahead of their departure today in the morning to the Old Trafford for the match, where Paul Pogba wasn’t spotted with the arriving squad.
The full spotted Manchester United squad is as the following:
Goalkeepers: David de Gea, and Sergio Romero
Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Matteo Darmian, and Ashley Young
Midfielders: Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, and Michael Carrick
Forwards: Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, and Jesse Lingard
This is the spotted squad for Manchester United where Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial has dropped again from the full squad, and Marouane Fellaini is dropped as well after Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, declared the Belgian player fit ahead of the crucial match against Liverpool FC, but it seems Jose Mourinho doesn’t want to risk the player again in such big match where he may not be 100% ready.
Our expected starting xl is as the following:
Goalkeepers: David de Gea
Defenders: Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, and Ashley Young
Midfielders: Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, and Jesse Lingard
Forwards: Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, and Romelu Lukaku
Paul Pogba wasn’t spotted with the arriving squad to the hotel, which means that the French Midfielder is probably dropped again from the starting squad due to issues with the Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho.
Sometimes Paul Pogba used to arrive separately and not with the full squad. However, this can’t be confirmed until the official starting xl is revealed by Manchester United one hour ahead of the match, at 1:30 PM BST, where we will be sharing it immediately.
