Liverpool face Manchester United tonight with a top four finish still in the Reds’ hands. Goal difference permitting, if we win all of our remaining games then we qualify for the Champions League. We just need to do the hard part now. Here is the confirmed Liverpool lineup to face Manchester United:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
The Brazilian had a blinder against Southampton, he’ll be crucial to launching counters tonight.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold
The Scouser in our team grew up chained to the tele when these games were on, he won’t need reminding just how important this is.

Centre back: Nat Phillips
The Bolton Baresi is denied a head-off with Harry Maguire – perhaps Nat will bag his first goal from a corner?
Centre back: Rhys Williams
With Ozan Kabak absent Rhys Williams keeps his place in the side so that Fabinho can start in the middle.
Left back: Andy Robertson
Andy Robbo’s energy is crucial in games like this. He needs to peg his winger back in his own half.
Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum
The Dutchman has turned up for us in big games before, he’s hoping he does so again.
Centre midfield: Thiago
The midfield maestro has won the biggest games in world football, he’ll be relishing this contest.
Centre midfield: Fabinho
The Brazilian is tasked with neutralising Bruno Fernandes tonight, that’s not an easy task but it’s one Fabby is capable of.
Left wing: Diogo Jota
The Portuguese star is given a big vote of confidence ahead of Sadio Mane.
Right wing: Mo Salah
Mo needs to keep pace with Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race, expect a goal tonight.
Striker: Roberto Firmino
The Brazilian was named in the starting lineup when we last tried to play this game and he keeps his place this time out.
