Predicted Liverpool line-up to play Manchester United: Strongest available side from Klopp

Here is how we predict Liverpool will line up against Manchester United later this week:

Liverpool travel to Old Trafford on Thursday evening for the second leg of their last-32 Europa League clash.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a healthy 2-0 lead heading into this encounter after thoroughly outplaying United at Anfield last week, but they will be taking nothing for granted against a side who will know they can score the goals to overturn that deficit.

Liverpool’s weekend off means they will be fresh for this match, while United had a tough FA Cup quarter-final game with West Ham United that ultimately ended 1-1.

In early team news, Liverpool are without Danny Ings, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Rossiter, Joe Gomez and Kevin Stewart.

With the Europa League being Liverpool’s last chance for silverware this season, and with a path to next season’s Champions League still open, expect Klopp to play his strongest available side from the outset.

With that in mind, here is how we expect Liverpool to line up later this week:
