We are miles better than them, so we should win well, but then again, we are miles better than Fulham and Crystal Palace...

So it all boils down to what we are able to show on the night. If we play to our level, or anything close to that, we will win, even with injuries and suspension. On their end, clearly they have a lot of problems, but there's nothing like the biggest and best coming to town to give you some focus.

I expect their fans to try to get it called off, but hopefully the police will be out in force to ensure a safe environment in, and especially around the ground. For any match going reds on here, keep your wits about you and stay in groups. There's a toxic nature around Man Utd at the moment, and there's always plenty of dickheads ready to cause trouble.

I would definitely play Diaz on the left and Salah on the right. If Bobby is fit he gets the nod in the middle, and if not, I would play Carvalho there as a false nine type. I suspect they will share the minutes, with Bobby starting and giving us what his current fitness allows, say 60 mins, and Carvalho coming in to finish the job off.

It was nice to see Joe Gomez last time, and I would play Robbo, Virg, Joe, and Trent across the back line. 

Midfield is a tricky one. Elliott has looked good and deserves to start. If Keita is fit he will stake a claim, but I'm not sure I like Keita and Elliott in a midfield three together, so maybe Keita will come in at some point if Harvey starts to tire?

If Henderson is fit he should start, and I like him in the 6 more than the 8 these days, although if Fabinho is fit and on form, he should get the nod as the 6. The midfield is the trickiest part to pick at this stage for me, but it will probably be Fabinho, Henderson and Elliott.

No matter what team we play, I hope we see the level of play start to go up as we get closer to what we can do. The first two games saw some glimpses, but also too much sloppy stuff. If we play our football we will win, and comfortably too.

PS - very nice opening post, sorry I forgot to say at the outset. Really whetted the appetite, cheers!

Ironically, the same thing applies to 99.9% of the teams that we'll face. Only City have the personnel and the mentality to play an open game against us. Could we imagine saying this a few years ago? No chance

They are in alot worse shape than us and the pressure on them will be immense. Get an early goal and their fans will turn and we could win big again. A return to type with Bobby, Salah and Diaz up front with Keita alongside Henderson and Fab.

Even with a home crowd behind them, and it essentially being their biggest fixture of the season, I still can't see them mustering the luck or guile to outscore us

Even in third gear, we're still a notoriously hard team to beat. Our current unbeaten streak proves that

We'll put 2 or 3 past these easily. No amount of home support changes the fact they're an absolute shambles defensively

+ manchestereveningnews.co.uk: Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag considering dropping Harry Maguire vs Liverpool FC

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is giving serious consideration to dropping captain Harry Maguire for the visit of Liverpool on Monday.

Maguire started in both of United's defeats to Brighton and Brentford and new centre-back signing Lisandro Martinez was hooked at half-time with United 4-0 down at the Community Stadium.

However, the Manchester Evening News understands Ten Hag is mulling over the prospect of starting the £55.3million Martinez with Raphael Varane, who will almost certainly be recalled.

Dressing room sources say some United players feel Ten Hag's approach does not suit their skill set and they would favour a more pragmatic approach against Liverpool.

Liverpool inflicted a 5-0 thrashing of United at Old Trafford last season and pummeled them 4-0 at Anfield six months later.

Thoughtful op thanks mons. Have to say I was looking forward to Nunez against them. I can understand them dropping Maguire with our likely front three being small. Hope Jota makes it back. Gomez was one of a few bright sparks on Monday so he is sure to start.
TAW was a really interesting review of our tactics going forwards this season with Nunez and highlighted some genuine concerns. Hope our front three play closer together against these whoever is alongside Diaz and Salah.
Have to believe we will this.

United away is a massive fixture and last season was probably an anomaly. Given our shaky starts to games this could be a tough tough fixture, if we concede first it will be a long evening.

A hard fought ugly win will do for me. Cant see it being anywhere close to last seasons result.

We probably won't do it, but I would focus most of our attention at keeping it tight at the back. It's a simple calculation, we are more likely to keep them from scoring and will probably have enough on the other end to penetrate their shaky defence. So solid and compact in midfield, make them work (which they seem alergic to) and wait for an opening.

Due to our opening results this is now a game we really need to win, same goes for them - so it will be tight and ropey. We need to keep our composure and put constant pressure on them - I'm sure they will crack, hope they will crumble.

Hey we might smash them and I hope we do but our history at the toilet isn’t the best.

Just hope Firmino is fit enough, Cos neither Salah or Diaz has started down the middle for a while. Carvalho can play down the left and Diaz can play center perhaps....but ideally, Firmino is the one.

Squads starting to look a bit thin, hope we have Gomez 100% too and I have no idea whats going on with Matip.

Another midfielder and a forward in the window after that. And probably another young CB in the same window.

I think everyone is forgetting just how poor this lot actually is. Yes, we have been 'off' in the two games this season. However, those came against teams where all their players worked hard and followed plans outlined by their respective managers. Fulham came at us, played well and absolutely ran themselves into the ground. Palace parked the bus, looked to hit us on the counter, ran themselves into the ground, and we still missed several chances.

This United team doesn't have hard work in it. It doesn't have the capability of parking the bus and if it has a go like Fulham, it will leave huge swathe of space. They have a new manager and already it looks like the team can't be arsed working for him. Sure, they might score first and get their pit rocking but these don't have the discipline to defend well for 60 minutes let alone 90, and if they fall behind, they're as likely to give up as not.

As for this being a derby and them providing a 'reaction' after a bad loss, they lost 4-2 to Leicster last season before playing us at OT and turned in a truly pathetic performance. It may not be a thrashing and we may have to work for it, but I've little doubt we'll win.

Our last 2 games there have resulted in 4-2 and 5-0 wins. Whatever 'fear' factor we had is gone, at least amongst this group of players.
True but we aren't in top form at the moment.

Anything less than a comfortable 3-0 and I’ll be disappointed. We’re not yet as lethal as we were when putting 9 past them to no reply last season, but then they’re even more of a shambles currently.
I’d take a 0-1 , 97 min Og
