Take two. Manchester United host Liverpool tonight in a rescheduled Premier League game after the previous game was postponed due to fan protests.

There could be more fan protests against the Glaser tonight, but it looks like we’ll move on on the basis that the game continues this time.

This game is the last of four games in eight days, with the list of games shortened by the original postponement.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made 10 changes to the team that defeated Aston Villa for Tuesday night’s game against Leicester. Expect another 10 changes for this one. Let’s get into that …

Changes on the back

Dean Henderson will turn back in goal after David de Gea played against Leicester.

Expect Luke Shaw to play as left-back and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as right-back after both players had a 90-minute break on Tuesday night.

The central defense is a little more difficult to call. Victor Lindelof will start but with Harry Maguire still injured there is a dilemma as to who will replace him.

If both players were rested, Eric Bailly would be the preferred choice. However, Bailly cannot realistically be asked to play 90 minutes twice in three days with his injury record and United will have to protect him for the Europa League final in case he is needed.

Axel Tuanzebe has hardly played this season and will take the chance to play again. He did well before when he stood next to Lindelof.

Big guns attack again

A full overhaul is expected in the event of an attack. In midfield, Fred and Scott McTominay will return as Solskjaer’s preferred pairing for big games.

The top four spots of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani at the top will give United a terrifying quartet for Liverpool.

Mason Greenwood will sit on the bench and rest after the last three games have started.

Out: De Gea, Williams, Bailly, Telles, Van de Beek, Matic, Elanga, Amad, Mata, Greenwood

In: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Shaw, Lindelof, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford, Cavani
