Liverpool first team players set to miss important Premier League clash against Manchester United
The reds will be traveling to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Monday, August 22 but Jurgen Klopp’s side looks to be in the disadvantage end.
Liverpool have as many as eight players unavailable due to various injuries (via Liverpool World).
However,Liverpool’s new talisman Darwin Nunez will be under suspension after collecting a red card against Crystal Palace for head-butting Joachim Anderson
Liverpool have 2 draws in their first two premier league outings and sit 12th with two points.
Manchester United, However are rock bottom in the league and have failed to collect a point.
Although Manchester United will be facing Liverpool weak side, their chances of securing a point is very slim.
While Liverpool did not manage to win any of their two games, their performances were still quite superior and dominant.
Manchester United, meanwhile, have looked timid and disjointed on the pitch and their confidence is quite low, especially after the 4-0 thrashing by Brentford.
Liverpool will miss Thaigo Alcantara, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, Caoimhin Kelleher, Calvin Ramsay and Darwin Nunez.
The good news is that Liverpool will not be without a proper centre-forward, Roberto Firmino will be available and will likely start against Manchester United.
The Brazilian will have a chance to strengthen his claim for a starting place in Darwin Nunez’s absence.
