Spotted: Some unexpected absentees from Man Utd squad
When the United manager announced after the PSG game a couple of weeks ago that both Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial would likely miss the Liverpool game at Old Trafford, few Reds fans believed a word of it.
And when it was clear on Saturday that Lingard was back training and would be available, it was assumed that Anthony Martial would be too.
But according to reports from the MEN this morning Martial looks likely to miss the match, whilst Nemanja Matic could also be an unexpected miss for them too.
The loss of Martial means we could see Lukaku or even Sanchez starting in his place, whilst the loss of Matic would be as big a blow and may mean a slightly less 'physical' midfield quartet with Juan Mata recalled to the lineup.
Of course, for all of the club's bluster during the build up to this match, we would not be at all surprised if Utd went for a slightly more defensive line-up in the absence of the two.
