Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester United

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League showdown with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Liverpool will make the short trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United looking to register their ninth successive Premier League win of the season.

The 100% record for the Merseyside giants, maintained with a last-gasp victory over Leicester City, has enabled them to open up an eight-point advantage over champions Manchester City.

However, Jurgen Klopp has a couple of important decisions to make regarding key players ahead of squaring off against the club's fierce rivals on Sunday afternoon.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news for the meeting with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's outfit.
