How should Manchester United line up against Liverpool?

Which players, formation and tactics should Manchester United use in their Europa League game against Liverpool?

Manchester United are without Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, Will Keane and Wayne Rooney against Liverpool in their Europa League match tonight, who are all considered to have 'long-term injuries.'

Bastian Schweinsteiger might be able to feature for a short while in the second half, whereas Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Ashley Young are in training, but not yet ready to feature for the first team. Antonio Valencia may make the bench.

In defence, it will likely be the same side that started against West Ham: Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Chris Smalling and Guillermo Varela.

Memphis and Ander Herrera may drop to the bench, but let's be honest, anything might happen. Marcus Rashford could continue to start in attack, and does at least have a recent history of important goals (though he also only has a recent history). This is, then, a complete guess.

tBB prediction:

Subs: Romero, Valencia, Darmian, Schweinsteiger, Herrera, Carrick, Memphis.
