The early team news and predicted line ups as Man Utd host Liverpool FC in the rescheduled Premier League fixture on Thursday night

Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways when they host fierce rivals Liverpool in their rescheduled Premier League fixture on Thursday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are still in the driving seat for a second-place finish in the top-flight this season even after their defeat to Leicester guaranteed Man City top spot.

United have lost just one of their last 15 home games against Liverpool in all competitions (W10 D4), and are unbeaten in their last eight since a 0-3 loss in March 2014.

In terms of early team news Harry Maguire remains sidelined through injury while Anthony Martial remains a doubt as he returns from a lengthy lay-off.

This is how MEN writers think United should line up.

Samuel Luckhurst

It is logical to make 10 changes but it would be ironic if the surviving starter is the notoriously brittle Eric Bailly. Axel Tuanzebe was also United's best defender against Aston Villa.

Other than that, all of the regulars should return. Mason Greenwood only comes out because he has started the last three games and United need to wrap him up in cotton wool, especially as he deserves to start in the Europa League final.

Dean Henderson comes back in, which could allow David de Gea an Old Trafford swan song with fans back inside the stadium next week.

Having made ten changes on Tuesday night we could see the same amount on Thursday night as Solskjaer looks to use his hefty squad depth for another fierce encounter.

Henderson should return in goal, while Bailly will likely be the only survivor in defence due to the fact there are not many other centre-backs available for selection.

Fred and McTominay is predictable but safe in midfield while Fernandes will be itching for a start after his reduced role earlier in the week.

Pogba is the best option on the left wing while on the right it should be between Rashford and James for a start - with in-form forward Greenwood worthy of a rest. Cavani is a certainty through the middle and Amad should get another half an hour from the bench regardless of scoreline.

Tyrone Marshall

By making so many changes against Leicester Solskjaer has telegraphed this team selection. While Tuesday's line-up was impossible to predict, tonight's should be very easy to guess.

Henderson should return in goal for De Gea and the only survivor from the defeat to the Foxes should be Bailly, with United needing to press a centre back into action again with Maguire injured. Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof and Shaw should all return and they are head and shoulders above their rivals.

In midfield Fred and McTominay will be reunited, as they usually are for games of this magnitude. Matic was one of the few senior players to emerge with credit against Leicester but he's got a job on to force his way into the team.

Further forward Greenwood will step down having started the last three games. That will mean Rashford on the right, Pogba on the left, with Fernandes behind the in-form Cavani.
