Although Mohamed Salah may still play against Manchester United in twelve days time, there is a risk that the Liverpool forward could miss out on the starting eleven if he hasn’t fully recovered from the twisted ankle he sustained against Leicester.
With that being the case, supporters on Twitter have already been speculating who could replace the Egyptian. After returning from his own ankle injury, Divock Origi is being touted as a potential starter:
Warning everyone now, if Klopp plays Origi, that’s the end of Utd. 👀

Lord Divock’s gonna play, not Shaq. Shaq should find another club if he wants game time.

If he doesn’t start orgi will punish them

After bagging a brace against Barcelona last year, as well as scoring in the Champions League final, the Belgian is now a cult hero among supporters and nobody would question if he were to be named in the starting line up at Old Trafford.
He has looked sharp coming off the bench in the last few games, and he could even add to his legend if he scores at the home of the club’s biggest rivals.
