Injury update: Alisson and Salah both set to start at Old Trafford

While everybody of Anfield will have been obsessing over the international fixtures this week, there will have been two things occupying the minds of Liverpool fans.

First, and perhaps most importantly, is the match against Man Utd and how 3 points would not only extend our 15 lead of Utd to 18, but would see Liverpool potentially go even further clear at the top of the Premier League depending on City's result at Crystal Palace.

Secondly, is the fitness of both Alisson and Mo Salah. The pair were previously considered doubts for the Old Trafford trip. Then it was simply 'touch and go'.

But now, an update in the Liverpool Echo appears to have assuaged fan's concerns and both are likely to return for the big match.

Alisson is back to full fitness, is in training and should, at least, be back on the bench against United.

Meanwhile, Salah - who picked up a knock against Leicester - is apparently 'expected to be available for selection' at Old Trafford. For all intents and purposes, we're looking likely to be able to field a fully fit first team against Ole Gunnar Solkjaer's team.
