According to the results of a recent Football FanCast poll, a large majority of Liverpool fans want James Milner to be the player to fill in at right-back against Manchester United amidst the injury crisis at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp has been extremely unlucky in recent weeks as he has lost both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez to injury, whilst Nathaniel Clyne will not be back to full fitness in time for the United clash on Sunday.

This leaves the German boss with a huge selection dilemma, especially as the in-form Marcus Rashford will surely play on the left-hand side of United’s attack.

Summer signing Fabinho has experience of playing right-back from his time at Monaco, but it is clear that Liverpool fans would prefer the ever-dependable Milner to step in.

The 32-year-old recently played his 500th Premier League game in the win over Bournemouth, and he marked that occasion at right-back, having spent plenty of time at left-back under Klopp.

A huge 83 per cent of Liverpool fans said that Milner would be the man they would chose to cover for Alexander-Arnold and Gomez. Check out the full results of our poll below.
