Xherdan Shaqiri begins for Liverpool in opposition to Manchester United on Super Sunday, with Jordan Henderson becoming a member of Fabinho at centre-back.
Shaqiri begins for the primary time within the Premier League for Liverpool since December 2019, alongside Thiago and Gini Wijnaldum in midfield.
Jurgen Klopp additionally opts for a similar centre-back partnership that misplaced 1-0 at Southampton in Liverpool’s final Premier League recreation, with younger centre-backs Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips on the bench. Joel Matip is just not match sufficient for the squad.
Midfielder Naby Keita stays sidelined with a muscle downside which has saved him out since December 19.
For Manchester United, Anthony Martial begins after issues over his health, whereas Victor Lindelof returns at centre-back to companion Harry Maguire.
They make three modifications from the 1-0 win at Burnley as Fred and Scott McTominay are available for Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic.

Klopp names ultra-attacking crew
Sky Sports’ Adam Bate:
“That is an attacking line-up that Jurgen Klopp has named. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho at the back with Thiago in midfield already makes Liverpool look more expansive, albeit slightly more vulnerable too, but it is the inclusion of Xherdan Shaqiri that rams home the message.
“Shaqiri has not began a Premier League recreation for over a 12 months. It is a dramatic determination in a recreation of this magnitude and it means that Klopp actually needs to assault Manchester United. He is backing his gamers to create the higher possibilities if he can open this recreation up.”
How to comply with

Big match alert.
In conditions like this, attempting to not get carried away with the pre-match hullabaloo with regards to discovering clever betting angles is vital. This one has the hallmarks of being a cagey affair.
Liverpool have the perfect Premier League house report this season – and are unbeaten of their final 67 league matches at Anfield – whereas Man Utd have the perfect away report within the division. So, what occurs when an immovable object meets a drive of nature? Stalemate, that is what.
Surely “don’t lose” would be the message somewhat than going all out to win it for each groups, particularly within the Manchester United dressing room. A draw can be an enormous outcome for them. If the sport will get to 60-65 minutes and is all sq., we might see a repeat of what occurred in Man City vs Liverpool, the place each have been pleased with some extent. I can be backing the draw.
There is worth available elsewhere although. One space of soccer betting I’ve discovered to be fairly worthwhile in recent times is the playing cards markets. The stats will let you know that Scott McTominay has but to be booked this season however he is made 22 fouls, averaging over 2.2 fouls per 90 minutes. Unsurprisingly, he has made probably the most fouls with out being booked of any present Premier League participant this season. If you stretch it again to final season he has now on a run of 31 fouls and not using a card since being booked after 24 seconds on Boxing Day in 2019 vs Newcastle – which is the quickest reserving since Opta began collating information in 2006.
No doubt he can be tasked with breaking apart Liverpool’s play in midfield this weekend in what’s prone to be a niggly encounter. Liverpool all the time pack loads of physicality and punch of their midfield and 12 opposition central midfielders have been booked vs Liverpool of their final 14 Premier League video games. At 12/1 McTominay is worth an interest to get carded first, or these that may deal with backing quick costs on this market ought to take a look at the 23/10 for him to be carded anytime.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-1 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: Scott McTominay to choose up the primary card (12/1 with Sky Bet)
