Team News

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard could return for Manchester United’s eagerly-anticipated Premier League clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The duo were expected to be out until early March with injuries sustained against.

David De Gea is set to return in goal after Sergio Romero started Monday’s FA Cup win at Chelsea. Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo are still fighting their way back from injury.

Liverpool are able to welcome Virgil van Dijk back into their starting XI in a bid to prevent that, though, with the Dutchman having sat out the Champions League game with Bayern due to suspension.

Joel Matip and Joe Gomez remain sidelined, but Trent Alexander-Arnold is now back and is expected to start again this weekend.
