Man Utd injury news: Expected De Gea, Martial and Pogba return dates ahead of Liverpool | Football | Sport


Manchester United have endured a nightmare Premier League season so far, winning just two of their first eight games to see pressure build on the shoulders of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But while the Red Devils should be far higher than their current position, there’s no denying that injuries have done nothing to help their cause.

Manchester United have been dealt another blow ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Liverpool, with goalkeeper David De Gea limping out of Spain’s clash with Sweden.

The goalkeeper is now expected to miss the match against Jurgen Klopp’s side, with Sergio Romero now primed to start instead.

But the good news for United fans is that Martial, Pogba and Shaw are all expected to feature.

Martial has been missing for the Red Devils since their 2-1 Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace in August.

But the France international is set to lead the line against Liverpool – the same side who he scored on his debut against back in 2015.

Pogba and Shaw are also set to be back in contention.

And so too is Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been missing since toiling in United’s 2-0 Premier League defeat to West Ham.

Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood are all expected to be fit enough to play some part in the upcoming Liverpool game as well.

But there’s still no return in sight for defender Eric Bailly, who is currently expected to return around Christmas time.

While news of United welcoming back their best players for Liverpool will boost fans, former striker Michael Owen still expects Jurgen Klopp’s side to emerge victorious.

“Jurgen Klopp’s side have ridden their luck in recent weeks, but I expect them to have too much pace and aggression for this United side,” Owen told Bet Victor.

“Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful that he can call on the services of at least a couple of his key players returning from injury or illness.”

United failed to beat Liverpool when the two teams met last season.

The Reds won 3-1 when the teams locked horns at Anfield, with a Xherdan Shaqiri brace proving to be the final nail in Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford coffin.

And the teams then played out a goalless draw at Old Trafford earlier this year.
