Manchester United will look to continue their excellent start to the season when they take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the team I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: David De Gea is expected to once again start in goal with Sergio Romero making-do with a place among the substitutes.

Defence: Eric Bailly is set to get a recall in defence after being left out for the win over Crystal Palace before the international break. Chris Smalling is the man most likely to make way so Phil Jones should keep his place at the back.

Antonio Valencia is almost certain to keep his place at right-back while Ashley Young could retain his spot at left-back after an encouraging performance during the 4-0 win over Palace.

Midfield: United still have problems in midfield as Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out with a knee ligament injury that he sustained while away with the Belgian squad this week.

With Paul Pogba still recovering from a hamstring injury and Michael Carrick also nursing a knock it means Ander Herrera is set to come in alongside Nemanja Matic in the middle of the park against Liverpool.

Attack: United have been boosted with the news that Romelu Lukaku has recovered from a minor ankle problem and is fit to lead the line up front. The Belgian international will be looking to continue his excellent start to life at Old Trafford following his summer move from Everton.

Mourinho has a decision to make in attack between Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. The United boss has rotated the pair so far this season so we could see Martial come in on the left with Rashford dropping out after starting against Palace two weeks ago.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is certain to keep his place while Juan Mata should also start after scoring last time out so the likes of Jesse Lingard may have to make do with a place among the substitutes.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
