Bruno Fernandes has been dropped to the bench while Donny van de Beek and Marcus Rashford start as Manchester United take on Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made some notable changes to the team that started in the midweek against Fulham for their FA Cup fourth-round clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The first alteration comes in goal wherein Dean Henderson replaces David de Gea, as is the norm for cup ties. Victor Lindelof, who missed the midweek game due to injury, returns in defence, partnering captain Harry Maguire. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw are retained as the full-backs.

Paul Pogba, who was the star of the show against Fulham, holds on to his spot in the middle of the park. The Frenchman will be partnered by Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek in what looks like a three-pronged midfield unit for Manchester United against Liverpool.
This means, club’s chief talisman, Bruno Fernandes, has been left out on the bench, which is a huge call given the magnitude of the contest. Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford slot in as the wide players for Manchester United with Edinson Cavani spearheading the Red Devils’ attack. Anthony Martial is named on the bench.
Manchester United Starting Lineup: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; van de Beek, McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Cavani, Rashford.
