Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Liverpool could line up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hopes to have Curtis Jones back in contention for Sunday's Premier League battle with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The midfielder returned from England Under-21s duty earlier this month with a niggle and was nowhere to be seen against Watford or Atletico Madrid, but he is thought to have a strong chance of returning here.

However, Thiago Alcantara is unlikely to make his comeback just yet, while Harvey Elliott remains on the long road to recovery from a serious ankle injury.

Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip continue to keep Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez out of the side, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will reprise their roles at full-back.

Jordan Henderson is the only midfielder guaranteed to hold his place from the win over Atletico, with Fabinho sure to return to the first XI in place of either James Milner or Naby Keita.

The latter scored a sumptuous volley at the Wanda Metropolitano, but after being dribbled past three times and losing six of his seven ground duels, he may find himself on the bench here.

Milner could keep his place, though - with Klopp possibly reluctant to throw Jones back in from the first whistle - while Roberto Firmino ought to keep Diogo Jota out of the side after last week's Vicarage Road hat-trick.

Mohamed Salah - playing the best football of his life - will now seek to score for the 10th game in a row across all competitions for the Reds as he lines up alongside Sadio Mane once more.

Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
