Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Manchester United could line up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Liverpool.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some fresh injury doubts to contend with for Sunday's Premier League clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils lost Marcus Rashford and Fred to injuries during the Champions League win over Atalanta BC in midweek, while Bruno Fernandes has allegedly been seen limping in training recently.

However, Raphael Varane is the hosts' only confirmed absentee at this time, with Amad Diallo and Anthony Martial potentially shaking off issues in time to beef up Solskjaer's attacking options.

Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire will resume their defensive partnership as Varane remains sidelined, with a rejuvenated David de Gea keeping Dean Henderson out of the side.

Paul Pogba was only named on the bench in midweek but is sure to return to the first XI here - potentially in the midfield pivot alongside Scott McTominay if Fred does not make the cut.

The wantaway Frenchman could also start on the left, but Solskjaer is confident that Rashford's issue in midweek was only a dead leg and he will be fine to feature against the Reds.

While nothing official has been mentioned with Fernandes's concern, it is safe to assume that the Portuguese playmaker will be fine to line up alongside Mason Greenwood and behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who has only found the back of the net three times in 12 encounters with Liverpool.

Man United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo
