Liverpool have been in tremendous form going forward this season, but the potential loss of Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum could change the complexion of this fixture.
Manchester United aren’t quite clicking under Jose Mourinho but they cannot afford to drop any more points, as they start a gruelling nine-day period that presents fixtures against Liverpool, Fenerbahce, Chelsea and Manchester City.
United have won each of the last four league matches against Liverpool, but they will need to make significant improvements on Monday in order to continue that streak. Naijabet.com
Liverpool : Jurgen Klopp is sweating on the fitness of Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum ahead of Monday’s clash against Manchester United. Lallana missed the international break after picking up an injury in the first half of their 2-1 win against Swansea a fortnight ago, whereas Wijnaldum was forced off against France with a hamstring injury.
Both are huge doubts and their absences could pave the way for Emre Can to make his first league start of the season.
Manchester United : Wayne Rooney is expected to remain on the bench when Manchester United travel to Liverpool on Monday. Jose Mourinho could spring a surprise with Marouane Fellaini, who has been effective against Liverpool in recent encounters.
Luke Shaw and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have struggled with fitness concerns this season and may not be risked in a game of this magnitude, particularly after it backfired against Manchester City earlier this season.
