Ahead of one of the most anticipated matches in the football calendar, Manchester United have found themselves in an injury crisis. During their UEFA Champions League fixture against Bayern Munich, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw limped off with groin and hamstring injuries, respectively.

The potential absentee list for United, as they make the trip down the M62 to face Liverpool FC at Anfield, is as follows:

  • Harry Maguire
  • Luke Shaw
  • Tyrell Malacia
  • Casemiro
  • Lisandro Martinez
  • Christian Eriksen
  • Bruno Fernandes (suspension)
  • Mason Mount
  • Victor Lindelof
  • Jadon Sancho (excluded)
  • Amad Diallo

There are certainly some glaring holes in the defence and midfield that’ll surely add even more unpredictability to a fixture where the form book frequently goes out the window.

Liverpool will look to punish a Manchester United squad reeling from their Champions League exit. They will benefit from being able to rest most of their players in a dead rubber tie in the Europa League against Union Saint-Gilloise on Thursday. Up the United-beating Reds.
