Liverpool expected 4-2-3-1 v Manchester United: Midfielder returns
PREVIEW By Coral Barry
The big dilemma for Jurgen Klopp is whether to select an unchanged team for Liverpool’s second match in a week against Manchester United after their dominant display at Anfield.
Liverpool travel to Old Trafford, following the luxury of a week’s rest, as they bid to progress to the quarter-finals of the Europa League with a 2-0 advantage from last Thursday.
Milner missed that game through injury, but could slot straight back into the team if he is passed fit.
That could mean Adam Lallana, excellent in the first leg, demoted to the bench.
Lallana provided the pass for the second goal for Roberto Firmino to ensure the Reds head to Manchester with a two-goal cushion.

However with the knowledge that United will have no choice but to go all-out attack against their fiercest rivals, Klopp might be tempted to go with experience over flair.
At the other end, Martin Skrtel could be in line for his return from a hamstring injury.
The Slovakian has not featured for Liverpool since late December, but played 60 minutes for the under-21s on Friday.
Liverpool have no other major injury concerns ahead of the clash apart from long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Danny Ings.
Liverpool (possible): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno; Henderson, Can; Milner, Coutinho, Firmino; Sturridge.
