Traditional foes Manchester United and Liverpool are all set to clash in a Premier League fixture at the Old Trafford on Saturday, Sept. 12.
After tasting defeat in their last meetings, both teams will be struggling hard to pull off victory so as to bounce back on the winning ways.
The Red Devils are likely to have goalkeeper David De Gea on the squad as Van Gaal has opened contract talks with his agent Jorge Mendes after the collapse of his insinuated Real Madrid transfer.
The upcoming clash will also mark the much-awaited debut of Man United’s new crew member Anthony Martial, who joined the Old Trafford outfit from AS Monaco this summer.
Gaal’s side; however, is likely to miss midfielder Michael Carrick for this crucial attack that is sitting away owing to the calf injury.
Reds are unluckily lacking most of their significant players including Coutinho thanks to injuries or suspensions. Adam Lallana and Jorden Henderson will have to undergo fitness trials to prove their fitness to make the appearance.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): Romero; Blind, Shaw, Darmian; Smalling, Mata, Depay; Martial; Rooney; Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Ibe, Firmino, Gomez, Clyne; Can, Milner, Skrtel, Lovren, Leiva; Benteke
