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 clash with Manchester United.

Liverpool will look to continue their relentless march to the Premier League title when they host Manchester United at Anfield next Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side are 14 points clear of second place with a game in hand following a 1-0 victory away at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

However, Liverpool will be conscious of Sunday's opponents, who remain the only team to take points off the Reds in the 2019-20 season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the club's latest injury and suspension news ahead of this fixture.

Klopp has confirmed that Sunday's match will come too soon for Dejan Lovren, although the Croatia international is expected back in full training early next week and could be in contention for the Wolves game.


Joel Matip
