Liverpool will look to close-in on the top four when they entertain Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will pick.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet is expected to keep his place in goal despite another unconvincing performance against Arsenal in midweek.

Defence: Klopp could hand a full start to loan signing Steven Caulker as the German coach hinted that Kolo Toure is still feeling the effects of Wednesday night’s thriller versus the Gunners. Mamadou Sakho came through that game unscathed after making his injury comeback so with Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren still injured, Caulker could partner the Frenchman at the back.

Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne are certain to keep their places in the full-back positions.

Midfield: Lucas Leiva could be brought in to tighten up the midfield area after being left out against Arsenal. Jordan Henderson has suffered no ill-effects after making his comeback in midweek so he should continue in midfield alongside Emre Can.

Attack: If Leiva is recalled then James Milner could be moved out to wing with Jordon Ibe dropping to the bench. Daniel Sturridge is still working his way back to full fitness following a hamstring injury so Roberto Firmino should continue up front after an excellent performance again the league leaders on Wednesday night.

Philippe Coutinho remains unavailable due to a niggling hamstring problem so Adam Lallana should keep his place in attack.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:

    It will be quite an open game that seems promising to produce goals. Although Liverpool have a little more advantage playing at home. But in the end it all boils down to who shows that they need it more in their play. May be luck could play it’s part too. But i support united to win.
