    Surely we gotta go for a midfield 3 against Liverpool. Stuck between Fellaini for his physicality or Morgan, but gotta go for Schneiderlin.

    Schneiderlin, Herrera, Pogba
    Mkhi/Mata, IBRA, Rashford

    Will be Fellani so he can throw his elbows around.

    He's clearly unhappy with his options in that position as Mourinho's sides have traditionally had a big powerful DM. Schneiderlin seems like he's another example of a midtable player unable to make the step up to a big club, and Carrick's legs have completely gone (Which begs the question why was he given another contract?).

    One of them simply has to start though because a Pogba & Herrera midfield two is just asking for a heavy defeat. We've been far too open against teams like Watford and Stoke, never mind a free flowing Liverpool team who can't stop scoring.

    Our record at Anfield isn't great and i'd happily take a draw - not that that's likely to happen as United v Liverpool rarely ends in a draw. There hasn't been one in the league for years.

    I think Fellaini and Herrera as the two with Pogba pretty much as the #10 is possible

    It's clear Schneiderlin isn't favoured by Jose and he trusts Fellaini ahead of Carrick and Morgan so a three with Herrera, Fellaini, Pogba seems feasible despite the reservations of Fellaini having the discipline to stay in that role. Mourinho will look to be very physical against them IMO, won't be surprised if there's a red card tbh.

    Rooney dropped by Southgate for tomorrow. Easy for the manager to do now than Malta but have to give Rooney credit for speaking up at the press conference. Spoke well but can't help but think he made a mistake not retiring from internationals in the summer, it would have given him more of a chance to rest and be involved in the mix at United. Now he's constantly under the microscope

    I think we'll play the same team which played Leicester, Liverpool wont play 10 behind the ball like other team so hopefully we will get the chance to create more, Im hoping for Martial and Rashford to start so that we can hit them on the break with Mata/Pogba/Herrera playing the through balls We should play Martial whichever side Moreno plays because I reckon he'll take him to the cleaners

    I think if Martial and Rashford both start, it should always be Martial on the left and Rashford on the right

    Everyone knows the signature Martial finish. If you know where it ends you know where it begins.

    Moreno hasn't exactly been in favour anyway its been Milner at LB and Clyne at RB.

    I agree it'll be a more open game but you can't forget that you'll have less of the ball due to our pressing game and your defence will also be under significantly more pressure.

    I agree you should play Martial, but Milner is our LB and he has been bloody fantastic so far in that position. He kept both Willian and Mahrez quiet in some important games so he shouldn't be underestimated.

    All in all, I think we're currently playing the better football and we "should" win at Anfield, but against Manchester United managed by Mourinho? Can't call it.

    What makes you think Moreno is going to play when Milner has been starting over him since the first PL game?

    Yeah your pressing will give us problems like City's but if we have Mata, Herrera and Pogba we can counter that in intervals with quick passing to find space.

    Agree about Milner but genuine pace will give anyone a problem

    Yeah thats what makes these derby games so fun, form goes out of the window and its about who plays better on the day!

    We're certainly far from invincible and the fact we haven't kept a clean sheet all season says it all really. You'll score for sure - I'm betting through a set piece - so for us it's whether or not we play well enough to get more goals. If we pay anything like we have done against the likes of Arsenal/Leicester/Hull/Chelsea, you won't stand a chance.

    Lack of pace can definitely be compensated for by positioning, however with how attacking Milner is, it's important he doesn't get caught out of position.

    Tbh it might not even be who plays "better" per se. We'll only win the game if we play superior football but it's very possible that we could dominate possession and chances, yet be denied continuously by DDG and still lose 1-0 to a scrappy goal from a corner.

    Mourinho used to start Mikel in these type of games and he doesn't want to play Schneiderlin? **** don't make sense.

    Not sure on who will win tbh. I reckon a high scoring draw personally.
