Eric Bailly x Lisandro Martinez
It’d be surprising to see Bailly get the nod over Varane, given United’s reported desire to sell him this summer. However, Lindelof’s absence makes Bailly the Red Devils’ fourth-choice central defender, which he could profit from on Monday.
The prospect of a hard-hitting duo including Martinez is enticing. Darwin Nunez’s suspension makes Jurgen Klopp’s likely front three: Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino. So the Argentine’s height shouldn’t prove to be much of a disadvantage in open play, with his ability to read the game likely to be far more important on this occasion.
