Manchester United: Projected lineup against Liverpool with Marcus Rashford close to starting.

Marcus Rashford faces competition from Antony to start for Man Utd against Liverpool. Manchester United has a chance to disrupt Liverpool’s Premier League title bid by preventing them from taking maximum points on Sunday. Erik ten Hag’s team will aim for a positive result at Old Trafford, after winning in the hard way in a 4-3 FA Cup quarter-final victory last month. In defense, Wan-Bissaka, Kambwala, Maguire, and Dalot are expected to line up for United.

Injuries to Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia leave Ten Hag without a natural left-back option, leading to adjustments with Wan-Bissaka and Dalot. The team also faces fitness concerns at center-back, with Harry Maguire as the only established central defender available. In midfield, Scott McTominay and Kobbie Mainoo are likely to start at the base, with Mason Mount pushing for a start but not at full speed yet. In attacking midfield, Garnacho and Fernandes are expected to play, with a dilemma between Antony and Marcus Rashford for the left flank.

Antony’s impressive performance against Chelsea may give him the edge, but Rashford’s big-game presence could see him starting. Striker Rasmus Hojlund is expected to start without competition due to Martial’s injury and Rashford’s positioning on the left. However, Hojlund will be eager to break his goal drought in the upcoming game, having gone three games without scoring since returning from injury.
