Late change to United’s starting XI minutes before kickoff

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been forced into a late change just minutes before kickoff between Manchester United and Liverpool.

Axel Tuanzebe had originally been named in our starting lineup to play in a back five alongside Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in the middle.

However, the 21-year-old pulled up in the warmup and has now been ruled out of this afternoon’s match. Marcos Rojo will replace Tuanzebe in the starting lineup. Phil Jones has been added to the bench.

The confirmed Manchester United starting lineup to face Liverpool will now be:

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young; Andreas Pereira, Scott McTominay, Fred, Daniel James; Marcus Rashford

Substitutes: Sergio Romero, Phil Jones, Brandon Wlliams, James Garner, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood

Marcos Rojo will be making his first Premier League start of the season, having only previous played 30 minutes this season – as a substitute in our loss at Newcastle United directly before the international break. The Argentinian international has started both of our Europa League games so far this campaign.
