Manchester United have been hit with major blows following their weekend fixture against fierce rivals, Liverpool as David De Gea and Paul Pogba have been ruled out.
De Gea was subbed off due to an injury in Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Sweden and he alongside French midfielder, Paul Pogba have been ruled out for the Northwest derby slated for Sunday at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Liverpool on the other hand will be welcoming back their number one shot stopper, Alisson Becker who has been injured since the community shield game against Manchester City, where he picked up an injury.
The struggling United side who have failed to record a single win in their last five games will line up against a Premier league unbeaten and table toping Liverpool side with a much weaker team.
With many believing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job will be at stake should he record an embarrassing loss in the derby.
The absence of Pogba and De Gea, as well as uncertainties on the availability of Anthony Martial, Aaron Wan-bissaka andLuke shaw will be too of a cross for The Red devil’s Norwegian manager against the high flying Reds.
MANCHESTER UNITED WITHOUT DE GEA:
Surprisingly, The Red devils have performed excellently well in the games they played without their number one GK, De Gea, since 2013.
Manchester United have played 10 EPL games without the Spaniard, winning six of them and drawing three and losing just once since 2013.
In those 10 games, majorly having Sergio Romero between the sticks, they kept 9 cleansheets and conceded two goals in a 2-1 loss to Swansea in 2015.
The last meeting between Man United and Liverpool ended in a barren draw at Old Trafford in February.
