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

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Liverpool will aim to keep their fleeting hopes of a top-four Premier League finish alive when they travel to Old Trafford for Sunday's battle with old foes Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp's team were seconds away from claiming a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, but the wasteful Reds were made to pay for their missed chances as Joe Willock levelled deep into added time.

The reigning champions have now fallen four points behind Chelsea in the race for Europe, and with only five games of the season remaining, Klopp will need everyone firing on all cylinders at Old Trafford.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
