Manchester United suffered a humiliating 4–0 defeat away at Brentford on Saturday on the back of the 2–1 opening day defeat against Brighton.
Up next for the Red Devils in the top flight is an Old Trafford clash against Liverpool and Erik ten Hag must show courage and massively change his team.
David De Gea should be nowhere near the starting XI after the Brentford display but Man United simply have no other decent goalkeeper in the squad.
A new-look defense must play against Jurgen Klopp’s men after what happened on Saturday. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrell Malacia can’t do much worse than Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw.
Meanwhile, it’s high time for Ten Hag to give the Victor Lindelof—Raphael Varane partnership at center-back a chance to show that they can thrive as part of his system at the club.
If Donny van de Beek can save his Old Trafford career, the Liverpool game would be a great place to start. Zidane Iqbal, meanwhile, shone against Klopp’s side in pre-season.
If Anthony Martial is available for selection, he should be leading Man United’s attack on Monday with Jadon Sancho keeping his starting XI place.
Alejandro Garnacho and Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, must replace underperforming Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.
How Man United should line up vs Liverpool
4-2-3-1: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Varane, Malacia; Van de Beek, Iqbal; Sancho, Eriksen, Garnacho; Martial.
