Bruno Fernandes an ‘injury doubt’ for Manchester United vs Liverpool

Bruno Fernandes an ‘injury doubt’ for Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United look to have been dealt some concerning personnel news ahead of their upcoming outing.

Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United are set to face off with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, in what will be the marquee Premier League tie of the weekend.

The Red Devils head into the game on a pretty poor run of form. United did pick up a 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek, but they first went 2-0 down, with it clear, despite victory, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had no tactical plan on the day.

Elsewhere, Manchester United have failed to win their last three league outings – drawing one and losing two.

This has seen the Manchester outfit slip down to 6th in the Premier League, five points off top spot.

And it is hard to envision the Reds managing to end their winless league run this weekend, either, as Solskjaer and co. must face off with bitter rivals Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are the only side unbeaten in both the Premier League and Champions League this term, and should prove a tough test for United.

Bruno Fernandes a doubt ahead of Liverpool

As a result, Solskjaer is of course going to be keen to field as strong a line-up as possible on Sunday.

However, as mentioned above, it now appears as though United have been dealt a personnel blow, ahead of their metting with Liverpool.

Bruno Fernandes has been an integral part of the Red Devils’ setup since his move from Sporting CP in January of 2020.

But, according to the Sun:

BRUNO FERNANDES is a shock injury doubt for Manchester United’s game against Liverpool.

It is added that Fernandes was on the end of some strong challenges vs Atalanta in midweek, and after heading to Carrington for warm down training, the extent of the midfielder’s exertions had ‘clearly caught up with’ him, leaving Fernandes limping heavily.
