Pre-Manchester United Overnight Open Thread

Dejected Nani is always worth putting in a photo. - Alex Livesey

Five questions to pass the time as we wait for kickoff from Old Trafford.

1) With Brendan Rodgers not having improved selection options since Saturday, who starts at the back?

2) Steven Gerrard is known for bringing it in big matches, but will he play the full 90 given everything about his performance against Southampton?

3) Who gets a cameo from the bench?

4) Let's be real: is there any way that Luis Suarez doesn't make the starting line-up?

5) Does Brendan Rodgers go full-strength with his starting line-up or with the mixture of "youth and experience" that eventually requires key starters subbing in to save the day if things don't go as planned?

Bonus: The working conditions of 19th century Manchester were so horrific that they inspired resident Friedrich Engels to develop ideas that later ended up published as the Communist Manifesto, co-written with BFF Karl Marx. With this in mind, and in the context of Shankly Socialism and the sacking of resident Premier League fascist Paolo Di Canio, which philosophical movements best correspond to which Premier League clubs? Who are the nihilists, the stoics, the epicureans? The hedonists, the pragmatists, the existentialists?
