Early Man United news ahead of top-of -the-table clash against Liverpool

Early Man United news ahead of top-of -the-table clash against Liverpool

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to wait on the fitness of several key players ahead of their clash against rivals Liverpool on Sunday. 

The Reds of Old Trafford travel to Anfield for the all-important top-of-the-table clash against Jurgen Klopp's side, knowing a win will see them open a six-point gap at the top. 

Ole will be hoping Anthony Martial is ready for the match, after he was withdrawn on Tuesday with what seemed like a hamstring, and being replaced by Axel Tuanzebe. 

Nemanja Matic too went down with an apparent groin problem, and even though he played on until the end, he is a doubt for the Reds match. 

Victor Lindelof missed the game entirely after he reportedly aggravated his back problem, which has seen him play only two of United's last seven games. 

In the Swede's absence, Eric Bailly performed well alongside Harry Maguire and could be an option in case he is not passed fit. 

Ole though will have a decision to make in the middle of the park with Paul Pogba and Matic impressing against the Clarets in the absence of Fred and Scott McTominay, who were rested with the latter coming on as a late substitute. 

Upfront, Marcus Rashford is available, and so is Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani, who missed the last three matches prior to Tuesday's clash following a three-match suspension.
