The early team news for Man Utd’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield has been revealed by the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and two defenders have been ruled out.
The Red Devils go into this game 3 points clear of their arch-rivals at the top of the Premier League table and a win at Anfield will strengthen their position there and put them in a good position to fight for the title.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Both right back, Brandon Williams and Centre back, Phil Jones are out of the game.
Brandon Williams last featured against Watford in the FA Cup while Phil Jones is still out with a long term injury.
“I think the only ones that are certainly out it are Brandon and Phil Jones. They are the two that definitely cannot make the game. A couple of others may be doubts, but we’re hoping – fingers crossed.” – Ole said.
Some of those doubts are Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial.
Lindelof has been suffering a back issue but United will be thankful for the timely return of Eric Bailly who has made match winning contributions since his return, while Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial left with a knock against Burnley in United’s last league game on Wednesday. Which they won and went top.
