Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to share one major fear they have ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Manchester United.

What’s the story?

Well, after watching last night’s 3-2 win over Atalanta, some Liverpool fans noticed a feature of Manchester United’s game which could trouble them.

One fan pointed out that Marcus Rashford was being found time and time again with lofted passes over the top of the backline.

They added that it’s the exact type of pass which tends to catch out Liverpool, before a number of other fans commented in agreement.

It’s definitely something for Jürgen Klopp to be wary of.

In the German’s system, which sees Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson deployed high up the pitch, there are often gaps down the flanks.

As a result, Liverpool can be hurt out wide, as it results in Joel Matip or Virgil van Dijk coming out of the centre and leaving gaps.

Of course, the Reds are overriding favourites for this game, but that doesn’t mean the Red Devils won’t cause them problems.

In fact, Rashford has often caused Liverpool issues – the 23-year-old has scored five goals in 11 games against Klopp’s men.

It would be foolish to ask Alexander-Arnold and Robertson to sit back, so how can Klopp deal with these balls over to Rashford?

If we were Klopp, we’d instruct Fabinho to form a back-three when the full-backs bomb forward, slotting in between Matip and Van Dijk.

That way, when they are pulled out wide, Fabinho will be there to cover the gaps while Liverpool wait for Alexander-Arnold and Robertson to get back.

For now, let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about this feature of Manchester United’s game…
