Erik Ten Hag to start Martial over Ronaldo against Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool head to Old Trafford this evening where they face Manchester United in the Premier League. Early team news suggests that Erik ten Hag has made some significant changes.

according to Sky Sports NewsAnthony Martial is expected to start the night ahead of Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo as the 26-year-old returns to fitness.

The Red Devils have played two games already this season, losing in both with Ronaldo failing to make an impact against Crystal Palace or Brentford.

However, although Martial looked good during the Red Devils’ pre-season tour, he has not scored a goal in the Premier League since October 2, 2021, when United drew 1-1 with Everton.

Dutch coach Skipper Harry Maguire is also expected to change to the bench after several errors in the first two matches of the 2022/23 Premier League season, much to the delight of many United fans.

Liverpool will be Ten Hag’s biggest challenge so far this season, and they will aim to avoid a third consecutive defeat.

Let’s hope his gamble pays off.

Team news will be confirmed at 7pm GMT, with the match kicking off at 8pm.
