Jose Mourinho's players Rashford, Lingard, or Martial to miss Liverpool clash

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has three selection dilemmas ahead of Saturday's clash with Liverpool, according to Gary Neville

Mourinho must make decisions on who to play at left-back and in the wide midfield positions at Anfield, with the other seven outfield players already decided, according to former United captain Neville.

"The question marks over the United team will be…. We know Jose will want to deal with Liverpool's main threats, which I think are [Philippe] Coutinho and [Mohamed] Salah.

"It is whether he thinks [Ashley] Young can handle Salah and whether he brings [Matteo] Darmian in. He might come in as he defends with his right foot and Salah making those runs.

"So that could be a potential change and is he comfortable with [Marcus] Rashford, who has played for England and [Anthony] Martial has not? That has been a conundrum all season for Jose and to be fair, both of them have done brilliantly. I do not think you can go wrong with either one.

"Coutinho plays in that gap and space and with [Alberto] Moreno going forward, is Mata the person who can get back in there and then get up the pitch?.

"So I wonder whether Jesse Lingard, or whether Rashford or Martial could go over that side, but those are the only questions for me.

"Who plays left back - I think it will be Darmian. On that right-hand side, I think it will be Mata. And then, is it Rashford or Martial?"

In contrast, Liverpool's starting XI is easier to pick, according to Jamie Carragher, especially following the hamstring injury that has sidelined forward Sadio Mane for six weeks.
