Bruno Fernandes to miss out? Solskjaer confirms ‘two or three’ Man United stars carrying knocks ahead of Liverpool

Bruno Fernandes to miss out? Solskjaer confirms ‘two or three’ Man United stars carrying knocks ahead of Liverpool

Manchester United vs Liverpool

Manchester United will play host to Liverpool in a Premier League clash this weekend.

The Red Devils head into the tie in desperate need of a league win. Man United have failed to win any of their last three league games, and are already falling behind the title-chasing pack.

However, picking up a victory against Liverpool is easier said than done. United’s record against the top English sides is pretty poor under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and their record against Liverpool alone is even more of a concern.

The Red Devils did beat their arch rivals 3-2 in the FA Cup earlier this year. However, in the league, Man United have not picked up a win over Liverpool since all the way back in March of 2018.

Since then, the Manchester giants have drawn three and lost three against Liverpool in the Premier League, with their last outing having seen the former come away on the wrong side of a 4-2 scoreline.

Solskjaer on team news ahead of Liverpool

With such a tough test facing them this weekend, Manchester United’s fans were no doubt anxiously awaiting an update from their boss regarding team news when the Norwegian held his press conference on Friday.

Raphael Varane has been sidelined since picking up an issue on international duty earlier this month.

Recent reports, meanwhile, also suggested that Bruno Fernandes has picked up a knock.

And when speaking on Friday, Solskjaer confirmed that ‘two or three players’ are indeed carrying knocks, with Bruno Fernandes seemingly one such individual:

“We do have two or three carrying knocks. I’ll give everyone time and I hope I can pick from a fully fit squad it might be that I’m without two or three and yes, Bruno might be one of them that might be a doubt.”
