Liverpool will host joint-leaders Manchester United at the Anfield in this week’s most anticipated fixture on Saturday.
The Reds will be looking to get back to their winning ways after the international break, and will be encouraged by the current injury crisis at Manchester United, who have no less than seven players on the sidelines.
The biggest name that will be missing from Jurgen Klopp’s line-up sheet will be long-term absentee Adam Lallana who is out with a thigh strain.
Klopp will also have to do without the services of Dejan Loveren, Nathaniel Clyne and reserve keeper Adam Bogdan, although he will be encouraged by the return of Emre Can and Joel Matip.
Predicted line-up: Mignolet, Gomez, Matip, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Mane, Salah, Sturridge
Things taken a sharp turn for the worse at Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho having to accept that no less than seven players will not be at his disposal. It’s like Alamo.
The latest worry is Maroune Fellaini’s knee ligament injury, who will join a heap of others among which Phil Jones, Michael Carrick, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo on the treatment table.
Mourinho, however, will be encouraged by the likely return of his top goal-scorer Romelu Lukaku.
Predicted line-up: De Gea, Smalling, Valencia, Bailly, Young, Matic, Blind, Mata, Mikhtaryan, , Rashford, Lukaku
