Manchester United team news.
As confirmed by Mourinho in the post-match press conference following the 2-0 success against Hull City, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to be available after illness forced him to miss the EFL Cup semi-final on Tuesday. United will still be without Eric Bailly, who’s about to start the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast (he’ll face Togo on Monday), and there are question marks surrounding Marcos Rojo’s fitness. The Argentinian defender was rested for the Hull game to recover from a muscular problem, but he’s still a doubt ahead of this clash.
Jurgen Klopp will have to cope with the absence of top scorer Saido Mane, who is currently on international duty representing Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations. However, Philippe Coutinho could start for the first time since 26 November, after the Brazilian playmaker returned to action as a substitute at Southampton on Wednesday night. Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson didn’t travel to the South Coast but only the latter, Liverpool’s captain, is likely to play against United.
I predict goals, I also foresee Mane's absence as a huge loss for Klopp not just for his presence in the middle and his goals, he is the clubs leading goal scorer, yes Coutinho is back and had a good 30 minutes midweek but other than that man to man Manchester United, in the form they in, should have the better of Liverpool and win by two. In doing so put themselves back in the hat for the title come May, in my humble opinion that is.
