Fernandes, Fred, Rashford - Manchester United injury news and return dates for Liverpool FC clash

Asia's Tech News Daily

Manchester United will be looking to get their Premier League form back on track when they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

United, who have not tasted victory over Liverpool in the league since March 2018, will enter the contest with Jurgen Klopp’s side winless in their last three Premier League outings.

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping Wednesday evening’s thrilling 3-2 win over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League will inspire his players to get their league form back on track and heading in the right direction once again.

Despite boasting a squad littered with talent, United are considered as underdogs ahead of Sunday’s highly anticipated tussle due to the recent form and Liverpool’s unbeaten run across all competitions so far this season.

To make matters even more daunting ahead of Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford, United could be without midfield architect Bruno Fernandes through injury, boss Solskjaer has confirmed.

With that in mind, here is a round-up of all of the very latest United injury news ahead of their clash with Liverpool.

Raphael Varane

The United summer signing suffered a groin injury during the UEFA Nations League final between Spain and France almost a fortnight ago and is set for a “few weeks” on the sidelines.

He is not likely to be available for selection until next month, leaving United a man light at the back for a few weeks longer.

Expected return date: November.


Brazilian midfielder Fred, who returned to the starting line-up against Atalanta in midweek, was forced off in the latter stages of the contest with a hamstring strain.

It did not appear, at the time, to be too serious and manager Solskjaer, speaking to the media on Friday lunchtime, has not ruled the Brazilian out of Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.

The United boss said : “It’s still just Friday, the game’s on Sunday, we’ll give everyone time. We might have the whole squad back fit, we might be two or three players down. Today we didn’t have everyone [in training]. Let’s see Sunday.

“Games like Wednesday night are always going bring knocks and bruises and, yes, we do have two or three carrying knocks from that game. I’ll give everyone time.”

Expected return date: TBC.

Bruno Fernandes

Fellow midfielder Fernandes is also in danger of missing the clash with the Merseysiders with an unspecified injury.

Solskjaer has confirmed that he could be without up to three players this weekend and Fernandes is one of them, although, like Fred, he has not been definitely ruled out at this stage.

Solskjaer said: “Yes, Bruno might be a doubt. But he’s doing everything he can to be ready.”

Expected return date: TBC.

Marcus Rashford

Like Fred, Rashford was also forced off against Atalanta with a knock, casting doubt over his availability ahead of Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer confirmed Rashford’s early exit was as a result of a dead leg, conceding that he “should be okay.” However, considering that the United boss, speaking on Friday, said that he could be without up to three players against Liverpool, Rashford may not be so lucky.

However, considering that Solskjaer has refused to rule him out 100 per cent, it may mean that the England international, who has two goals in his last two games, may make the cut.

Expected return date: TBC.

Anthony Martial

Martial picked up an injury whilst on international duty with France at the UEFA Nations League finals, meaning he has missed the recent clashes with both Leicester City and Atalanta.

However, he has been pictured in training this week, suggesting that he could be available for selection on Sunday afternoon.

Solskjaer did not provide any sort of update during his pre-match press conference on Friday to suggest that he was amongst his potential absentees, meaning he could be set for a return against Klopp’s troops.
