Manchester united travel to Anfield to face Premier League champions Liverpool in the biggest match of the season so far.
The Red Devils moved to the top of the league after they defeated Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor on Tuesday night.
In Case You Missed:
Jurgen Klopp’s side can dethrone United with a win due to Liverpool’s superior goal difference.
United are winless in their last four games against the Reds and Kloop is looking forward to win this time around.
Jurgen Klopp will assess Joel Matip prior to kick-off, with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams waiting in the wings should the Cameroonian defender miss out.
Naby Keita is definitely ruled out of the 4:30pm GMT kick-off, however. Klopp said of the No.8’s fitness:
“Now we just had to put on the brake and say, ‘Let’s settle it properly.’ In the moment we have alternatives in midfield, so we really try to give him all the time he needs to get 100 per cent fit.”
What We Recommend:
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will use Saturday’s training session to see which players are fit to play, with Anthony Martial suffering a light hamstring issue against Burnley. Brandon Williams and Phil Jones are out.
Solskjear confirmed on Friday “I’ll give everyone tomorrow as well to prove their fitness, to get a chance to go to that game,” he said.
“There are a couple of knocks that we got at Burnley that I’m not sure about. “I’m going to give everyone a chance, another day. Anthony is not out of it.
“I think the only ones that are certainly out it are Brandon and Phil Jones. They are the two that definitely cannot make the game. A couple of others may be doubts, but we’re hoping – fingers crossed.”
