Man United handed major injury boost with four players set to return for Liverpool tie

Manchester United might have up to four players returning from injury in time for their crunch English Premier League match against Liverpool on Sunday. 

The Red Devils have been hit with injuries in the opening two months of the new campaign, but reports indicate Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Aaron Wan-Bissaka might be back for the match.

Shaw has been missing from the side since a hamstring injury he suffered in United's 2-1 home loss to Crystal Palace in August, having resumed training early this month even though he will have to be assessed first having been out for long.

Martial, just like Shaw, has been sidelined with a thigh injury he sustained during the Palace match, and his return has been long overdue as it was said to be a minor injury. 

Paul Pogba has hit an injury patch in recent weeks, with the latest being a niggling foot injury which has forced him to sit out of United's last five matches out of seven. 

He shared a video while working out at the Transform Altitude Performance Center in Dubai, even though his leg was still plastered. 

New signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka has not been action for United in recent matches due to tonsilitis but is said to be ready for the big match at Old Trafford.

Their availability will be a major boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is under immense pressure due to poor results in recent weeks. 

The team lies 12th on the log on nine points after eight matches and will be hoping to get back to winning ways against the league leaders, having lost their last match 1-0 away to Newcastle
