Jose Mourinho considering surprise tactical gamble for crucial Liverpool clash

Jose Mourinho is considering going back to a two-man midfield for Manchester United’s crunch home match with Liverpool on Saturday, but much will depend on the fitness of Paul Pogba, who has picked up a knock in training.

While sources are hopeful the French star will start, United will assess his situation overnight.

If he is fit, Mourinho is considering returning to a two-man midfield as he attempts to figure out how to play against Liverpool’s free-scoring attack.

Pogba will be deployed alongside Nemanja Matic, with Scott McTominay back on the bench, as Juan Mata returns to the side in a high-based position in order to help keep hold of possession.

Ashley Young will start at left-back, with Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling in central defence.

Marouane Fellaini is expected to return to the bench.
