Liverpool Vs Manchester United: Injury woes continue as Manchester United could be without 13 players for the Liverpool match

Prior to their Premier League matchup with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United suffered further injury setbacks.

Manchester United, who were already short on first-team players going into their Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, had to replace Harry Maguire with Jonny Evans with just five minutes left in the first half.

After that left-back Luke Shaw was replaced by Aaron Wan-Bissaka at half-time, citing hamstring soreness which made things go from bad to worse for Erik ten Hag’s side. Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial could not be picked either for this fixture, due to illness. It is still not clear to the fans whether the attacking duo will be fit to play their fixture against Liverpool.

Updating on the fitness of the pair ahead of kick-off, Ten Hag told TNT Sports: “[It’s down to] illness. Of course, this limits your options from the bench, particularly if you need a strong squad for this match. They would either be on the bench or in the starting lineup, but right now they are neither, and you need the substitutes when playing Bayern. But that’s the way it is; we have to do it without them.”

If Maguire and Shaw are unable to play in United’s forthcoming match at Anfield, Liverpool’s opponents may be missing an incredible thirteen players. Currently sidelined are Tyrell Malacia, Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof, and Amad Diallo. For disciplinary reasons, Bruno Fernandes is suspended; Jadon Sancho is still not allowed to play for the team. Rashford and Martial could be sidelined, as was previously mentioned, bringing United’s total of absentees to 13.

Ten Hag’s injury-plagued team lost 1-0 against Bayern on Tuesday night at Old Trafford, sending them to the bottom of Group A and out of the European competition.
